Riakporhe's Rise Continue

The Unbeaten Cruiserweight Moves To 6-0


Unbeaten cruiserweight Richard Riakporhe ensured his rise in the professional ranks continued. But it must be said he did not have things his own way. Fighting under the bright lights of the 02 against Adam Williams. From the opening bell, it was clear that he was in for a fight as Williams was game and ready to throw leather. The first round was difficult to split the two. But in the second disaster struck and Riakporhe was dropped to the canvas and visibly hurt. Though he managed to hold on to the end of the round. 

In the third round realising that with a possible points deficit, and with only two more rounds to rectify this. Riakpore turned on the heat. A big right wobbled Williams and sent him stumbling across the ring. Another hard shot put Williams down for the ten count. His corner needing to assist him in getting him onto the stool. Thankfully he was ok.

For Riakporhe he passed a gut check, he was dropped hard and got back up to fight to victory.
