It was Turchi who took centre ring early, as Riakporhe was dancing around the ring, throwing jabs at Turchi as Turchi tried to walk Riakporhe down. Turchi continued his high pressure in the second, cutting the ring off and nullifying Riakporhe's work.
However, Riakporhe delivered an absolute sickener of a body shot in the mid point of the second, which folded Turchi as he hit the canvas. Turchi was wincing in pain, but beat the count. However, the Turchi corner threw the towel prompting the bout to be stopped.

Riakporhe is ranked #7 with the WBA, but now gatecrashes the IBF rankings following his victory over Turchi. The 'Midnight Train' has succesfully departed from Wembley for a fourth time, but where does Riakporhe go next?
