Joseph Parker and Richard Riakporhe will return live on InNewCL Sports Box Office on the undercard of Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith’s all-British blockbuster event in Manchester.

Richard Riakporhe will begin his quest for a world title in 2023 when he faces former WBO Cruiserweight Champion Krzysztof Głowacki on January 21 at the AO Arena.

The undefeated Londoner (15-0, 11 KOs) has worked his way into the fight to fight for the coveted crown with three knockouts in his last three bouts.

Now 32-year-old Riakporhe will look to grab a big header in the form of Poland’s Glowacki (32-3-0, 20 KOs), whose only losses came to Oleksandr Usyk, Mairis Briedis and Lawrence Okolie.

Riakporhe said: “I am very happy that he accepted the fight. I can test the ‘Midnight Train’ again and everyone can see how I face the test of going against a former world champion.

“He will not be a pushover and I need to be at the top of my A game. It’s going to be fireworks, believe me.”

Richard Riakporhe stopped Fabio Turchi with a vicious body shot in the second round at Wembley Arena.

The bumper BOXXER: Unleashed undercard – live and exclusive in the UK and Republic of Ireland on InNewCL Sports Box Office – is Manchester’s very own Jack “One Smack” Massey (20-1-0, 11 KOs), who starred with the former WBO world heavyweight collided champion, Joseph Parker (30-3-0, 21 KOs).

Parker, the 30-year-old stablemate of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, is returning to Manchester, the scene of his loss as Fight of the Year contender to Joe Joyce in September, with intentions to get his own world championship ambitions back on track.

But Cheshire-based Massey, whose only loss was inflicted by Riakporhe in 2019, will look to cause a monster uproar against the Kiwi warrior when he breaks into the heavyweight division for the first time.

More battles for this blockbuster map will be announced in due course.

Ben Shalom, CEO and Founder of BOXXER said: “We are adding two big fights – with many more to come – to one blockbuster night of boxing.

“It’s a mighty test and a big step forward for Richard Riakporhe against a former two-time world champion whose only losses are Usyk, Breidis and Okolie.

“Glowacki has had a long time to prepare and it’s a huge cruiserweight fight that could make headlines. In a very exciting division, it’s time for Richard.

“Local Jack Massey asked me to do this fight against Joseph Parker. He has huge support in Manchester and now he will fight one of the biggest names in boxing.

“Parker is coming back from his battle of the year with Joe Joyce and will want to show exactly what he stands for. It will be very interesting to see how Parker reacts against a hometown favorite.”

The main event – coupled with Wasserman Boxing – will pit bitter middleweight foes Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith in what promises to be an epic national fight for the ages as both rivals attempt to make a giant leap towards their aspired pursuit world making title.
