And in the third the 25-year-old looked to again be closing in on his opponent after a right hand sent Kiladze tottering backwards on seriously shaky legs.

Georgian Kiladze, barely standing, then beckons over Kiladze, who complies and begins recklessly swinging hooks.

However, a careless Ajagba was then floored himself as the fight was turned on its head.

A brilliant right hand over the top sent the undefeated heavyweight to the canvas.

Ajagba rose to his feet, and went on to score a KO win in round five, surviving the early scare.

The 2014 Commonwealth bronze medalist vowed to learn from the mistakes he made during the thrilling fight.

Ajagba said: “When I got knocked down, I didn’t see the punch coming. I tried to hit him with the left hook and that’s when I got caught.

“He has a lot of experience and he’s a good fighter. This kind of fight will help me perform better in the future.

“This guy was a good fighter and he can take a lot of shots. I missed a lot of shots.

“Ronnie Shields, my trainer, kept telling me to work behind the jab and come back with the hook. It’s something that I have to learn to do.

“I made some mistakes, but I will go back to the gym and work on it. I’ll do better next time.”
