Former Olympian Lawrence Okolie will make his professional debut on the undercard of Jorge Linares v Anthony Crolla II. Okolie is a very highly rated talent and is going to be one of the future stars of British boxing.
He will be up against Russ Henshaw, another Brit cruiserweight who we have seen in action regularly over the last 2 years. He was knocked out by fellow British cruiserweight Isaac Chamberlain.
“I want to dominate the division. I’m not afraid to let the other cruiserweights know that I’m here and I am coming for them. I have all the physical and mental attributes to achieve it, I just have to get the experience and the real belief – not self-belief because I have that – but real belief from getting out there and getting in with someone who has trained to beat you.”
