Heavyweight Viddal Riley will face undefeated Ross McGuigan in his next bout on Saturday, November 12.
Riley (6-0, 3 KOs) made light work of Jone Volau back in June with a first round stoppage at Wembley Arena.
And the 25-year-old returned to the AO Arena in Manchester, defeating Willbeforce Shihepo on points, as he sought to maintain his focus on his position.
BOXXER CEO & Founder, Ben Shalom said: “Viddal is a professional boxer, who is still young and should be taken seriously.
“Coming from Tottenham and training in East London, Viddal understands the importance of improving his skills. Training, sparring, watching, listening and learning the traditional way.
“Undefeated at 6-0, Viddal has established himself in goal with each of his opponents and understands that hard work will lead him to win the domestic title in 2023, with the priority of the world title.”
Since turning professional in 2018, 2014 Team GB Youth Olympian Riley has enjoyed a flawless start and built a huge following on social media.
And he intends to make a mark in the heavyweight division.
Vidal Riley says: “My work continues on November 12 in Manchester. Ross McGuigan hasn’t won and he’ll do his best to keep it that way, but I know my level and I’ll show him all come fight night. “
In McGuigan (3-0), Riley faces a tough opponent who is keen to make an impact live and only on Sky Sports.
“I’m excited to fight Viddal Riley,” said London fighter McGuigan.
“I’m really looking forward to showing my skills on a bigger platform with Sky Sports and BOXXER, where I plan to introduce myself to the rest of the heavyweight division.”
Elsewhere on the November 12 card, Dylan Cheema will look to extend his undefeated streak when he takes on Jordan Ellison.
Cheema (7-0, 2 KOs) became the BOXXER Series: Heavyweight champion back in April when he beat Rylan Charlton – and the Coventry fighter is expected to have a legion of supporters cheering him on in Manchester.
Oldham middleweight Jack Kilgannon will be keen to put on a show for the home fans as he steps into the undercard.
And Mancunian welterweight prospect Clark Smith – Gallagher’s Gym stablemate Natasha Jonas, who fought Marie-Eve Dicaire for the unification world title at the main event – will be busy again as he tries to keep life in the professional ranks. .
