Lawrence Okolie has made it clear that he isn’t relying on a single punch and has more in his arsenal ahead of his title fight against Krzysztof Glowacki. Okolie who is yet to be defeated takes on the former world champion for the vacated WBO cruiserweight title. Okolie has developed his reputation as a power boxing after winning 12 of his 15 fights before the end.

“It’s more so tactically,” Okolie said. “I am never going to throw combinations on the inside. It’s about simple tactics. There are different ways to box different styles and I’ve trained to box a shorter southpaw who comes forward. At different stages, I will be asked to do different things.”

Okolie would equal Anthony Joshua in becoming a world champion in his 16th fight if he can overcome Glowacki who has lost just 2 of his 33 fights in his career. Okolie earlier hs won the British, European and Commonwealth championships.

“I’m not here to scratch and claw my way to the top,” Okolie said. “I won’t scrape through, I will do it in impressive fashion. For a long time, I’ve told myself that I’m meant to be a world champion. Glowacki has made that step before but now it’s my turn.”
