IBF Cruiserweight Champion Jai Opetaia Inks a Co-Promotional Agreement with Matchroom Boxing

Press Release:

Tasman Fighters and Jai Opetaia have agreed to work with Matchroom as part of a global promotional partnership.

Opetaia (22-0 17 KOs) wrestled the IBF and Ring Magazine World Cruiserweight titles away from Mairis Briedis on home turf with an outstanding display in Queensland, Australia in July 2022, outboxing the Latvian with a show of skill mixed with guts after breaking his jaw in both the second and final rounds.

Opetaia is currently in negotiations with his mandatory challenger Richard Riakporhe (16-0 12KOs). Team Opetaia targets August 23rd in Australia for the fight to take place. Riakporhe's Promoter BOXXER would like to bring the fight to the UK.

Stay tuned as this story develops.
