1 dimensional indeed. I think you are referring to Colin Lynes. Ajose Olusegun has the X factor about him. If runs out of ideas then he could have lost to Wright but no he changed tactics and took the contest.

I think Olu has created a bit of a PR nightmare on this forum which is a shame because I don't think he is a bad guy and I don't think Ajose is a bad fighter.
Jeff what are you talking about? I have not given details of who Ajose beats up in sparring. Hell if I did we probably would never get another fight and Lynes definitely will never fight Ajose. The only thing I said is that after defeating Bradley Pryce Hatton's then promoters wanted us to come to Manchester and spar Ricky and we told them that we wanted to fight him and beat him in match not just in sparring which does not count.

He has definate skill, good power, can be very awkward and has the ability to cause an upset but also comes with very little hype for those guys to build the fight around.

That is why I was disapointed with Ajose's performance against Wright, for me he needed a ko and a special performance to really put his name on the map. At the moment Ajose still needs a couple more good fights against good opposition before people will be willing to fight him. That is why I would love him to fight Lynes. The fight would be good and close and also the winner would be able to make a serious claim for a world title shot.

If and when he gets that WBC shot I would very much like to be at ring side to cheer your boy on.
I hear you brother and will give you a ringside ticket for this one when it happens. However I don't think a fight with Lynes will ever happen for reasons I have already stated. Ajose versus Junior Witter would be a thriller.

I was not too impressed with Ajose the other night. I expected him to do a number on Wright. I can't see how he can lay claim to be a World class operator when he struggles at that level. Perhaps he was mentally unprepared for this one and that would account for being so sloppy throughout.
If Ajose has plans on world domination then he needs to move quickly as there is a very real chance that he will stagnate at this level and end up losing. I have argued for a long time with Olu that Ajose should have head to the States and made a name for himself over there as he is not getting any younger.
