I agree that it would be good to have him in with the other british fighters however please ask the likes of Ted Bami and Colin Lynes why they keep pulling out of scheduled conmtests with Ajose. Lenny Daws promoter made it clear in Boxing News last year after Ajose knocked out Nuumbembee that they are not interested. Barnes was in Nuumbembee corner for Ajose knockout of Nuumbembee and I doubt he will accept especially after what the less gifted Joshua Okine did to him a few years back. I have always thought Barry Morrison might be game buty not sure Tommy Gilmour would allow it. Ajose has to target the winner of the Vivian Harris versus Junior Witter contest. I have a funny feeling that when Ajose becomes a British citizen and is nominated to fight for the British and European titles that Lynes might vacate the titles or retire.
