This will be ‘Reykon’s first professional boxing bout. The entertainment sensation from Colombia has transitioned his focus to boxing for now, thus adding himself as another celebrity boxer.

He has zero prior experience in the game, but it’s his love for boxing that has attracted him towards this.

On the flip side, his opponent, Joe Fournier, is all charged up to make his comeback to the squared circle after nearly five years. The last time he entered the boxing ring was in 2016 against Antonio Sanchez. This was a light-heavyweight contest wherein the Brit secured a comfortable unanimous decision win.

That said, he’s developed immense ring rust for staying out of the game for a while. But he’s extremely eager to prove his mettle in this bout.
