Nigerian Heavyweight title prospect Efe Ajagba recorded another career-stats improving victory with a ninth round KO victory over 32 year-old Romanian Razvan Cojanu at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night.
Ajagba (13-0, 11 KOs) knocked down Cojanu twice before their scheduled 10-rounder was stopped at 2:46 of the ninth round on the Adam Kownacki-Robert Helenius undercard.
Referee Ron Lipton ended their bout as soon as Cojanu took a knee after absorbing another thudding right hand from the Nigerian.

Cojanu (17-7, 9 KOs) was knocked out for the fourth time in nine years as a pro. Each of his first three knockout defeats – to Donovan Dennis, Luis Ortiz and Daniel Dubois – occurred in the second round.
Two and a half months ago after his victory over Iago Kiladze, when he suffered his first professional knock down, Ajagba described his performance as “terrible” and very well made up for it last night.
