Rio 2016 Olympics: Efe Ajagba loses quarter-final bout

Nigerian boxer Efe Ajagba has failed to make it to the medal’s stage following his loss to Ivan Dychko in a quarterfinal bout of ongoing Rio Olympics.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ajagba lost by unanimous decision of 28-29, 28-29, 28-29 to Dychko who won bronze at the London 2012 Olympics.

Ajagba who is the sole boxer representing Nigeria in Rio, lost all three rounds to Dychko as he failed to throw good punches in the last two rounds.
