Richard Riakporhe vs Fabio Turchi eliminator headlines June 11th Boxxer show

Top European cruiserweights will make a bid for a title shot on June 11th when Richard Riakporhe and Fabio Turchi headline a June 11th Boxxer show at Wembley. The press release calls it an “eliminator battle which will see the winner move up the cruiserweight rankings” and be in “prime position” to challenge IBF champ Mairis Briedis. I’m not entirely clear on the mechanics; Riakporhe (14-0, 10 KO) and Turchi (20-1, 14 KO) respectively sit at 12th and 11th in the rankings, so I don’t see this as being a terribly “final” eliminator.
