“I didn’t show it in the Shihepo fight, which is understandable – two years out, you’re not going to match your potential, but I’m active now and I’m ready. “The reason I didn’t get Shihepo out of there was because I was focused on getting him out of there.

When I started thinking about the hill, it got further away.
Riley’s latest outing came on the undercard of Richard Riakporhe’s clash with Fabio Turchi. And while he may still be some way off in terms of his development, he wouldn’t be surprised if he shares the ring with him in the future. He added: “In the next 12 months, I’d like to pick up a title.
