Richard Riakporhe Closes In On World Title Fight


Richard Riakporhe is close to securing major title showdown.

The Nigeria-born London cruiserweight is advancing towards a world title shot after demolishing Fabio Turchi so impressively earlier this month, reports

Promoter Shalom is eyeing a fight with the WBC cruiserweight belt-holder Ilunga Makabu for Riakporhe later this year as well.

“We’re very close [to a title fight]. Richard, that was his dream 12 months ago. He’s now on the brink of it. He doesn’t care which one it is. I prefer the WBC Makabu route. I think that’s a perfect one for Richard,” Shalom said.

“He [Riakporhe] looks the part, he looks as though he can take anyone on and he looks as though he can knock anyone out. I hope he will fight for a world title this year.”
