Richard Riakporhe is one of the rising contenders in the cruiserweight division

Richard Riakporhe says London rival Lawrence Okolie will receive first-hand experience of his punch power next year as he works towards a British title fight.

The unbeaten 28-year-old cruiserweight stopped Sam Hyde in an eliminator for the British belt on the Oleksandr Usyk-Tony Bellew bill and hopes to return to action within the next couple of months.

Trailing on the scorecards, Riakporhe inflicted a huge swelling around the left eye of Hyde, forcing the towel to come in, and he has been motivated by strong words from his mentor Dillian Whyte.
