Where To Watch: 


Why Bet on Lawrence Okolie?

World champion Lawrence Okolie fights for the first time in over a year as he returns to action against a mandatory challenger. 

This will be Okolie’s third defense of his WBO World Cruiserweight Title after winning it back in March 2021.

Okolie, now being promoted by Ben Shalom and Boxxer having left Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, will be looking for an emphatic stoppage victory this weekend against his undefeated New Zealand native counterpart.

Why Bet on David Light?

David Light has beaten everyone asked of him. However, the level of opposition has been relatively poor and way below this.

Whatever the case, he can change his life this weekend by becoming a world champion and defeating the big-punching cruiserweight that is Lawrence Okolie. 

The Great White has been more active through the last year, but this fight is a step up, and he should be prepared for it.
