I’m on the Joshua/Usyk Bill-Lawrence Okolie


*Defends WBO Cruiserweight Title Against Callum Smith


Come 25th September, Anthony Joshua will be out on a fisty night with Oleksandr Usyk with his WBA, IBF and WBO titles. But he won’t be alone as his compatriot, another Nigerian-born Englishman, Lawrence Okolie, will also be on the night’s card.
Before the Joshua/Usyk main event on a night that promises fiery sparks, Okolie, who became the WBO champion, via a crushing sixth round knockout of Krzysztof Glowacki in March, will be making his first defense of the title against mandatory challenger, Dilan Prasovic.
There are other pugilists on the undercard. One of them is Callum Smith, who is returning at light-heavyweight against Lenin Castillo following a points loss to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez last December.
Yet, there is 20 year-old Campbell Hatton, a lightweight candidate, who is hoping to extend his unbeaten record to four victories on the night as he takes on Spain’s Izan Dura.
Florian Marku will also attempt to take advantage of his impressive stoppage win over Rylan Charlton in February to hopefully whip Maxim Prodan for a shot at the IBF International welterweight title.
Not least is the desire of unbeaten Chicago middleweight, Christopher Ousley, to snatch the the WBA Intercontinental title by beating Russia’s Khasan Baysangurov.
Anthony Joshua will be defending his three heavyweight titles against Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25 in a fight that will be transmitted live on Sky Sports Box Office.
