Fans of the heavyweights have, or should have, the Top Rank card running Saturday on their To Do list. Efe Ajagba, age 28, holds a 16-1 mark, while 30 year old Stephan Shaw is 18-0. Both have KO capability. Now, did we see anything at the Friday weigh in to indicate who might have an edge going into the Top Rank/ESPN main event presentation?

Probably not, though Ajagba gets a point for successful chopsbusting. At their photog faceoff, Ajagba indicated that Shaw had stankbreath by clearing the air in front of his face with his hand.

No, Shaw didn’t take the bait and expend energy being offended

Shaw didn’t get irked, nor did he react angrily when Ajagba positioned his left arm to be in front of Shaw as photogs snapped pics. Does it mean anything? Impossible to know; but we at NYF are always amped for this sort of mini crossroads clash. Here’s more info on the card
