@beadybea Did you hear about Wallin becoming mandatory to Kabayal's belt? I've heard that he's looking to vacate his manadatory spot because he's trying to break into the US mainstream. Sounds more like a duck than that, honestly.

That fight was supposed to happen but was postponed because Wallin's coach was attacked in NY. In the meantime Wallin has struck a deal with Salita for some good exposure in the US so they've given up the mandatory spot as you say. A shame as it's a good fight but it's not quite a duck for me.

Efe Ajagba vs Amir Mansour

Not sure whether or not this makes Ajagba more of a contender than prospect now

It's sort of understandable, but I think he'd get a lot more exposure beating Kabayal who is very close to a contender at this point. By the way, Kuzmin looked like ass. Dawjeko is underrated, but I thought Kuzmin was the truth. Any truth to Kuzmin getting injured during the fight? Ajagba is still a prospect. Amir Mansour is so far past prime it's insane. He would've been a great win around the time he fought Kuzmin, but he's no longer a good win.

Beating a 46 year old? Definitely still a prospect.

But Ajagba seems to finally be learning some actual punching technique. Credit to Ronnie Shields.
Still balance issues, though, and still many pushed punches.
A very promising work-in-progress.
