Richard Rocks Stops, Krzysztof Glowacki In Fourth

Krysztof Glowacki is stopped by Richard Riakporhe in the fourth On the Eubank-Smith card in Manchester, Richard Riakporhe continued to advance toward a world cruiserweight championship fight by stopping former WBO champion Krzysztof Glowacki in four rounds. It is unclear when the unbeaten Londoner will get his shot at the belt, though.Riakporhe, 33, has a lot of strength, which was too much for Glowacki, who got into difficulty each time he opened up. Riakporhe may have to wait a little longer, though, as Chris Billam-Smith, a former rival and fellow Boxxer-signed fighter, is ready for a world championship chance in late spring.I projected rounds three or four, so some gymgoers who placed bets are going to be disappointed since we wanted a knockout victory. We wanted a knockout win, and I suggested it will happen in the third or fourth round, so some bettors in the gym will be pleased, Riakporhe remarked. "We're on a train, and all the champions are the next stop,"He named Lawrence Okolie, Arsen Goulamirian, Ilunga Makabu, and Jai Opetaia. I know about all of you, and every night before I go to sleep, I think about all of you," he stated. "Believe me, we are headed your way."The first and a half rounds were cagey as Glowacki attempted to find an opening without overcommitting as Riakporhe poked away with the jab. Riakporhe, though, sprung into action as is frequently the case with him, blasting a straight right over the top of Glowacki's left that causing the Pole's knees to tremble

As Riakporhe flew ahead, he almost touched down, but Riakporhe then made a strong right landing that Riakporhe wore very well.In the third round, when Glowacki attempted to slip and slide his way inside, Riakporhe returned to his jab.The deliberate strategy persisted up until the last 30 seconds of the fourth round, when Riakporhe unloaded a right, followed by a left to the body, and then opened out with a four-punch barrage that had Glowacki in severe difficulty and cornered. At 2:44 into the round, referee Howard Foster jumped in to halt Riakporhe after two more thunderous rights.After the battle, Billam-Smith joined Riakporhe in the ring,.

After the battle, Billam-Smith joined Riakporhe in the ring, but a rematch between the two is unlikely to take place until at least one of them wins a world championship. Everyone would want to see that fight again, according to Billam-Smith. "We both want world championships; we both need to go away and acquire world belts and make it a massive fight," he added.
