Taking to Instagram before his fight, Richie was humble about the amount of training he had done prior to entering the ring, complementing his trainer for the hours he had put in.
‘I can only imagine his thoughts after my first sparing round, maybe something like ‘You’ve got to be joking’. I must of looked like a T-Rex pinging at a rave,’ Richie said.
‘We had a lot laughs and I swear you’re Neo from the Matrix, or maybe I just punch in slow mo.’

The former reality star added the training made him physically and mentally exhausted.
Before the event, Richie told Confidential he was nervous about his high-profile fight.
‘To be honest, this is probably more nerve-wracking,’ adding his competitor was pretty good.
‘I don’t think there’s a greater challenge than going toe-to-toe with another man in the ring…there’s the unknown factor – anything can happen.’
The star-studded event attracted plenty of other reality personalities, including Married At First Sight stars Tracey Jewel and her boyfriend Sean Thomsen.
