Default What can you guys tell me about Ajose Olusegun?

The british based nigerian will be fighting my boy Jojo Dan in a WBC 140 lb title eliminator this fall.

I have never seen him fight but I understand he is a bit shorter than the 5'11 Dan and also a southpaw like Dan and already beat 3 romanians none tough on Dan's level.

I know he beat Nigel Wright twice and that's about it.And Gary Reid I think.

Is he any good?

IMO if he is any decent he will win cuz Dan has been dissapointing recently.

The location I've heard is either Romania or Canada.

Olu G Rotimi

My personal opinion is he is not as good as his manager claims. His manager believes he's the best in the world, he's a toss up against Floyd Mayweather and such.

His strong points are he's reasonably fast, he's very awkward as a southpaw. He's an aggressive fighter. His stamina is good and I havn't seen him hurt yet. Overall I'd say he's a very good athlete/


Bad points are he throws a lot of hooks and wide shots. He can get quite squared on when he throws combinations. He isn't a huge hitter, he only has accumulative power. His hands are down quite a lot, and I'd be interested to see if his reflexes are that good at the next level.

Overall I'd say he's a better physical specimen than technical skill.

He can also lose concentration during a fight, although if he does move up i'm sure that this will be rectified, hopefully.

From what you say TFFP he sounds a lot like Dan.

There are some fights of him on the tube and I''ll watch'em to see the dude move.

You think he beats Dan?

Good point. He can lose his way in there.

Whether this is simply boredom because he's above his opponents level, or a real problem we'll have to wait and see.

Nah, I don't think he's really similar to Dan if what I remember of Dan is correct.

Dan was far better technically, and more orthodox. Olusegun is a better athlete though, maybe stronger and faster.

I'd favour Olusegun but I'd need to see more of Dan to be sure.

The styles should clash well, but you never know with Olusegun. He can stop the fight getting into a flow at times.

Not a chance lads, i'd smash him. He keeps his hands too low. I'm a better dancer too

Well Dan is a southpaw,awkward,aggressive,squares up when throwing,not a one punch guy,accumulative so I see some similarities.

Send me some shit of Dan apart from the one I saw a while back and I'll tell you honestly his chances. I've seen enough of Olusegun and to be frank I don't enjoy watching him!

Sent mate.

You gotta consider the fight will most likely be on Dan's turf(Canada or Romania) from what I've heard.

I'd think so.

Olusegun is not a big draw in the UK.
