Ajose Olusegun has been patiently waiting for his
opportunity to fight for the title. Frustrated that he's been ducked by everyone
in the division, Olusegun feels he's one of the most avoided fighter in boxing.
Ajose, who hails from Nigeria agitatedly stated, "I've done everything that was
required of me to get my shot at the champion Erik Morales. For some reason I've
been bypassed but I'm not going anywhere. All these guys can run but they can't
hide and I'm going to stay on top ranked #1 in the world. It's been my dream to
strap the WBC belt around my waist since I first got ranked and I will not be
denied. Believe that!"
Ajose competed for Nigeria at the 2000 Sydney Olympics Games reaching the 2nd
round. Ajose began his career as a professional in May 2001 at the Royal
Gardens Hotel in Kensington, London.
Ajose interviews December 2011 and asked about fighting Erik Morales,
Ajose talks about how he is getting "ducked".
Advisor Damian Ramirez said, "Ajose is a great fihter and I have faith in our
promoter that they'll get him his opportunity. We should be fighting the winner
of Erik Morales vs. Danny Garcia. I want to schedule him on the undercard of
Sergio Martinez March 17th. In the mean time, I'm going to keep Olusegun busy in
the gym and wait to see what Lou DiBella has lined up for us."
Olusegun is a slick southpaw who's worked his way to the #1 spot by beating
everyone who's challenged him. Having fought most of his fights in the UK, Ajose
wants to make a name for himself here in the United States. He's hoping his
opportunity will come in 2012.
