Riakporhe is ready to be the best

Riakporhe, who is a perfect 13-0 (with nine knockouts), trained under Angel Fernandez, who has been in Joshua’s coaching roster for three years.

“It was absolutely amazing,” Riakporhe said. “You have AJ in camp, I get a lot of advice.

“He told me about things he went through and things I need to be careful of.

“Seeing him and what he has achieved, having him around me is also more motivating for me.”

Riakporhe will put his unbeaten record on the line

Riakporhe vs Jumah: What was said?

Riakporhe“Girls often run after me so I’m not surprised someone like Jumah wants me too.

“The fight makes sense because other opponents have fallen and I want to fight. On paper it’s a good fight – he’s left-handed, he can box, he’s undefeated.

“But I can also box left-handed, so we’ll see what happens on March 26. The most important thing is to achieve victory, by any means necessary. I think I’m stopping it.

Jumah“I think I beat him every lap and maybe stopped him in the later laps.

“He’s a big guy, a powerful puncher, but I don’t rate his boxing ability at all. He doesn’t have what I have in terms of boxing skills in any way.

“He’s beaten a lot of undefeated fighters, I don’t expect it to be an easy fight, but I expect to take him out.

“I have to nullify his power and then the opportunities to stop him will present themselves.”
