Get ready for a thrilling showdown in the world of heavyweight boxing as Efe Ajagba, the powerhouse pugilist, laces up his gloves for an epic clash with Australia’s own hard-hitting Joe Goodall. This exciting main event is set to light up the ring for a full 10 rounds on Saturday, November 4th, at the brand-new Tahoe Blue Event Center in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. What makes this even more special is that this will be the venue’s inaugural boxing event! Adding to the excitement, Ajagba and Goodall have a bit of history, having traded punches in their amateur days, with Goodall securing a win in the 2014 Commonwealth Games semifinals in Glasgow. So, there’s some unfinished business to settle here!
In addition to this electrifying heavyweight clash, the event will feature Raymond “Danger” Muratalla and the undefeated Mexican powerhouse Diego Torres, turning up the heat in a 10-round lightweight duel. These two dynamic fights take center stage and will be exclusively streamed in the U.S. live on ESPN+.
The promotion for this thrilling event is in the capable hands of Top Rank, along with DiBella Entertainment. Tickets for this incredible night of boxing action will be available starting Tuesday, October 3rd, at 12 p.m. PT via Ticketmaster.com.
Efe Ajagba, the towering 6-foot-6 Olympian and a true knockout artist in the heavyweight division, enters this bout as a serious contender for a world title. However, Joe Goodall won’t be a pushover. Top Rank’s chairman, Bob Arum, is excited about promoting the very first boxing event at the newly minted Tahoe Blue Event Center and anticipates an action-packed card. He also highlighted the bout between the emerging lightweight contender, Raymond Muratalla, and the tough Diego Torres.
Lou DiBella, the prominent figure at DiBella Entertainment, expressed his enthusiasm after Goodall’s victory in July, foreseeing a sensational clash between two knockout specialists. He said, “Joe’s triumph over Efe in the amateurs? Maybe it’s destiny. And with a fight like this, it’s the fans who hit the jackpot.”
With an impressive record, including a string of first-round knockouts, Efe Ajagba is determined to secure a significant win, even though he acknowledges the power of his opponent, Goodall. Goodall, with his 10-1-1 record, had an explosive start to his career in 2018, including a first-round knockout in March 2022. He’s eager to showcase his talent and sees defeating Ajagba as his ticket to a world title opportunity.
But the excitement doesn’t stop with the main event. The undercard promises more action, with talented boxers like Brandon Moore, Henry Lebron, William Foster III, Antonio “El Gigante” Mireles, Omar Rosario, Lindolfo Delgado, Charlie Sheehy, Javier “Milwaukee Made” Martinez, and Christian Avalos, all stepping into the ring, making it a night to remember for boxing enthusiasts.
