Nigerian heavyweight boxer Efe Ajagba has been helping Tyson Fury prepare for his WBC title defence against Deontay Wilder later this year.

The 27-year-old who has won all 15 professional fights in his category posed with the Gypsy King after a period of sparring with the Nigerian flag hung behind the two pugilists.

Ajagba won 12 of his 15 bouts through knockouts and it is no doubt he is learning from the Briton who has also not lost any single encounter in his career.
