Richard Riakporhe To Headline June 11 Boxxer Card at OVO Arena Wembley


Unbeaten Cruiserweight Contender, London’s Richard Riakporhe (14-0) will face Italy’s Fabio Turchi (20-1) in a reschedule of their March 26 fight at the OVO Arena, Wembley on June 11 live on Sky Sports Boxing. The world title eliminator will headline a stacked night of boxing two 50-50 fights and two top prospects.

Riakporhe under the Boxxer banner has boxed 3 times in just 8 months since signing and carries on that tremendous activity on June 11 against a solid European level opponent. Turchi has a loss to Belfast’s Tommy McCarthy in 2019 and has racked up 3 wins since including Chris Billam Smith foe Dylan Bregon and Nikolajs Grisunins.
