Team Nigeria boxer, Efe Ajagba, has zoomed into the semi-finals of the boxing event at the on-going 11th All Africa Games here in Congo Brazzaville.

Ajagba, fighting in the +91kg category, earned a technical knock out win over his South African foe, Paul Schafer, inside the boxing ring of Talangai Indoor Sports Hall Wednesday night.

Ajagba is thus guaranteed a medal whether he wins the semi-final fight on Saturday or not even though his opponent has not been disclosed.

The Nigerian pugilist last year defeated Schafer during the Commonwealth Games in Canada.
