The Golden Contract
He’s a former British and Commonwealth champion – and Bob Ajisafe plans to use the The Golden Contract to remind people of his class.
Southpaw Ajisafe (19-3, 9 KOs) is undefeated since a 2016 IBO world title bid and as he prepares for his campaign in the light-heavyweight tournament, ‘Lionheart’ feels ready to roar to glory with Daily Week Sports.
Ajisafe said: “Winning this tournament will be the pinnacle of my career. It’d be massive to have that international exposure and it can completely rejuvenate me.
“There have been a few things over the course of my career that haven’t materialised but this would turn everything on its head and I’d begin a new phase of my career.
“Now that the line-up has been complete and we are just a week or so away, it feels real and there are opportunities to form some strategies.
“I’ve begun assessing my rivals and knowing what you’re dealing with only makes you sharper. I need this kind of structure and this can be completely life-changing for me. That’s what’s driving me.
“I feel I’m a forgotten man. I’ve been shelved and avoided my whole career. This is going to serve as a reminder to these fighters and the general public that my skills are there and I’m still a force to be reckoned with.”
Joining Ajisafe in next Wednesday’s all-important draw is another former British king in Hosea Burton, plus Steven Ward, Liam Conroy, Serge Michel, Ricards Bolotniks, Tommy Philbin and Andre Sterling.
The quarter-finals then take place on Saturday, December 14 at the Brentwood Centre.
