Undefeated British-Nigerian Boxer, Lawrence Okolie, Scores Swift Victory Over Polish Opponent

Unbeaten British-Nigerian boxer, Lawrence Okolie, swiftly demolished Nikodem Jezewski to stay on course for a WBO cruiserweight title fight next year.

The 27-year-old was denied a fight for the vacant WBO belt after Krzysztof Glowacki tested positive for Covid-19, but Okolie made short work of his Polish replacement opponent.

The explosive power in Okolie’s fists was evident in the opening minute as he rattled in a right hand before a body shot sent Jezewski to his knees.

A straight right hand then sent shockwaves through Jezewski’s legs as he tumbled back to the canvas.

Okolie would not be denied a quick finish and a right hand sent Jezewski tumbling backwards for a third and final time in the second round.

Promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports: “He would have done the same thing to Glowacki!

“Glowacki, Makabu, Breidis – Okolie will go through the whole cruiserweight division before going to heavyweight!”
