Former British and Commonwealth light heavyweight champion from Leeds Bob Ajisafe (16-3, 7 KOs) hasn’t had the credit he deserves in boxing. A former English, British and Commonwealth champion who never lost his titles in the ring, he is also a world title challenger, unlucky not to get the result away in Russia in his last fight, a decision loss to Umar Salamov for the lightly regarded IBO belt last May.

The 31-year-old southpaw, 31, is a very underrated fighter and has stayed under the radar most of his career, but anyone in the game who knows him knows that he is a serious fighter and you could say he has been widely avoided, not getting the opportunities others have been given.

Now training in Salford under the tutor ledge of Oliver Harrison, Ajisafe isn’t ready to give up his mantle as one of the leading domestic light-heavyweights just yet and is looking to regain his British title before he calls time on his career. He tells British Boxers that a fight against WBA world champion Nathan Cleverly is in his sights and he is confident he has the beating of the Cefn Forest man as he looks to resurrect his career and prove his credentials as one of the most talented UK boxers on the scene. Ajisafe also says he would like to get his Lonsdale belt back and win it outright. Watch the interview video above.
