“My goal is to have the heavyweight belts in my hand. Once I’ve accomplished that, everything else will fall in place,” Nigeria’s Raphael Akpejiori adds another knockout win on his pursuit of a world title.
The unbeaten Nigerian delivered another display of his destructive power, stopping Steven Lyons in the opening round in Miami on Saturday night. Akpejiori has knocked out all 12 of his opponents inside two rounds and has told Sky Sports that he would welcome a fight against Fury or top contender Dillian Whyte. “If I was going to name a dream fight for me in the next year, I would say Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte,” Akpejiori told Sky Sports.
“Those are two guys I know I can step in the ring with and beat both of them.
“But my goal is to have the heavyweight belts in my hand. Once I’ve accomplished that, everything else will fall in place.”
