In a video shared on social media, Ajagba was filmed challenging the Gypsy King and also extending the options to others who were ready to face him.

"I want Tyson Fury to be honest, or whoever they offer me to fight, I’m ready to go. I will go back with my team to talk about that," he said.

The Knockout King as the Nigerian boxer is fondly called, is eyeing Fury's belt and could get his wish if he wins his next fight.

According to a report by the Guardian, the 29-year-old could face the Chinese boxer Zhilei Zhang, who is still unbeaten.

A win for Ajagba against the Chinese boxer could set him up with the winner between the Gypsy King and Oleksandr Usyk.
