Judging by the video, the big men grabbed each other and pushed around a little, but they did not use their fists. And this is good, since the champion has already scheduled the next fight – on March 25 at Manchester ArenaManchester, England) will face his mandatory New Zealander David Light (20-0, 12 KOs).
In the same arena in January, Riakpore quickly destroyed Glowacki: video, after which he turned to the champions: “Gulamiryan, Okoli, Opetaya, Makabu! I’ll come for you.”
