Bob Ajisafe vs. Dean Francis on March 15th


Bob Ajisafe and Dean Francis are set to clash for the vacant British light heavyweight title at Rivermead, Reading, on March 15th, live on Channel 5.

The English light heavyweight champion, Ajisafe, meets the former British, Commonwealth and European champion, Francis, with both men completely focussed on claiming the coveted Lonsdale belt.

Francis boasts 34 wins with 26 knockouts in a 39 fight career to date, which has seen him claim the WBO Inter-Continental, British and European super middleweight titles, along with the English cruiserweight and Commonwealth light heavyweight championships.

The Basingstoke man fondly known as “Star” has experience on his side and is determined to prove he still has what it takes by winning his second British title.

But Ajisafe, known as “Lionheart” will have other ideas.

At 28-years-old he is an English champion having won the belt against the formerly undefeated Travis Dickinson in Sheffield, Ajisafe has also traded leather with world title contender Tony Bellew in a hard fought contest over 12 rounds.

Trained in Sheffield with the Ingles, the Leeds based Ajisafe will be looking to win his first British title and add another Lonsdale belt to the famous St Thomas Gym in Wincobank Sheffield.

Also scheduled to fight on the show is Leon Senior as he faces former Commonwealth middleweight title challenger Tony Hill over 10 rounds. Former British light welterweight champion and European title challenger Lenny Daws will also be in action, along with former Irish lightweight champion Peter McDonagh, Reading’s own Tamuka Mucha, Ricky O’Brien, Thomas Jarvis and Slough’s John Brennan.
