Prediction,

This is step up for Ajagba, which is what he needs.

Ajagba is dominant, seems like a good fighter, but he hasn't fought any opponents who can challenge him, hasn't stepped up from his early opposition, the only name on his record I recognise is Harper, who made a record, built his reputation as a complete fool, walking out of the ring the second the bell went. Interestingly, Ajagba hasn't fought any opponents with losing records, he's fought 2 opponents with unbeaten records after 5 or more fights, his opposition has not been that bad, but 8 of his opponents have never had a 10 round fight, the other 2 have each had 1 10 round fight, but only one had had a single 10 round fight at the time he fought them, and Ajagba himself has only had 4 and 6 round fights himself, never fought an opponent with more than 18 previous fights, that shows how untested and professionally inexperienced Ajagba is. Ajagba has only been past the first round once, that was against Rodney Hernandez, who he stopped in 5. Ajagba was not a bad amateur, 2016 Olympian, lost in the quarterfinals.

Mansour is 46, very old, especially for a small heavyweight, he was 9-0 in 2001, went to prison, was let out 9 years later. Mansour has done well under the circumstances, at 35, after a 9 year layoff, that's not easy, heavyweights get old later, but still. Mansour lost to Steve Cunningham in 2014, but he won rounds, wasn't shut out or close to it, he drew with Gerald Washington in 2015, so he isn't a bum. Mansour was doing great against Breazeale, on the Garcia vs Guerrero undercard, I believe he bit his tounge, and he didn't want to continue, so he lost that fight. In 3 years, Mansour has fought 3 times, he egded out Travis Kauffman, not a bad win, fought to an NC against Sergey Kuzmin, and 6 months ago, he got stopped in 3 by unbeaten Croatian, Filip Hrgovic.

Mansour is past his prime, he is old, he isn't really a fresh fighter, but this is still a step up for Ajagba, Mansour has had 3-4 times as many fights as Ajagba, done 10 times as many rounds, experience is on his side, but still, Mansour was never a really good world level fighter, so if Ajagba is half-decent at world level, he should win this. Ajagba, Dubois, Gorman, Yoka, Hrgovic, they are all unbeaten, inexperienced heavyweights, all at a similar career stage and level, some will have to wait longer than others to get opportunities, and that is partly about who deals with certain opponents more easily. Ajagba should win this easy, he should try to do a better job on Mansour than Hrgovic, he's fighting an even older Mansour with a stoppage loss on his clock, so is fighting a slightly further past it Mansour than Hrgovic.

I think Ajagba stops Mansour in 2 rounds, Mansour will just about survive the first round, but Ajagba will stop him in round 2, and it will be a mismatch. If this is the mismatch I think it will be, Ajagba should step up in his next fight, fight more of a challenge than a 46 year old Mansour, maybe Charles Martin.
