Raphael Akpejiori added one other ruthless knockout win to his document after calling for a ‘dream’ battle towards Britain’s WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
The unbeaten Nigerian delivered one other show of his harmful energy, stopping Steven Lyons within the opening spherical in Miami on Saturday evening.
Akpejiori has knocked out all 12 of his opponents inside two rounds and has advised Sky Sports activities that he would welcome a battle towards Fury or high contender Dillian Whyte.
“If I used to be going to call a dream battle for me within the subsequent yr, I might say Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte,” Akpejiori advised Sky Sports activities.
“These are two guys I do know I can step within the ring with and beat each of them.
“However my purpose is to have the heavyweight belts in my hand. As soon as I’ve achieved that, all the things else will fall in place.”
The 6′ 8″ tall 30-year-old is guided by coach Glen Johnson, the previous world light-heavyweight champion.
“It is fairly evident that once I contact folks they sort of fall asleep,” Akpejiori mentioned.
“I am not oblivious to that truth, however I am not targeted on that.
“As Anthony Joshua says, ‘The correct hand can take you across the block, however a jab can take you world wide.’
“That’s an absolute fact in boxing.”
