Richard Riakporhe: Shane McGuigan 'undermined' Billam-Smith by bringing Okolie in, I wouldn't have it! (video)

Ahead of his highly anticipated clash with Chris Billam-Smith, Richard Riakporhe criticises his opponent’s trainer for signing another top cruiserweight


Richard Riakporhe is a thoughtful man and not reticent about sharing his views. Ahead of his highly anticipated clash with fellow undefeated cruiserweight Chris Billam-Smith, set for July 20 on Sky Sports Box Office, Riakporhe offered an interesting opinion on his rival’s trainer taking on British and Commonwealth king Lawrence Okolie.


Riakporhe feels that Shane McGuigan has undermined Billam-Smith with the move and that Okolie has been brought in as security in case the prospect does not make it. He also insists he would not support a similar action from his own coach, Mark Tibbs. Watch below.
