Next fight of Lawrence Okolie is not determined yet.
Kalle Sauerland, promoter of IBF and The Ring cruiserweight champion Mairis Briedis (27-1, 19 KOs), said that preliminary negotiations for a unification fight with WBO champion Laurence Okolie (16-0, 13 KOs) had started.
Mairis Briedis said that only a unification fight with Lawrence Okolie can keep him in the cruiserweight division. The Latvian has been planning a transition to the heavyweights for several months, where he may debut in May.
Laurence Okolie (16-0, 13 KOs) immediately after an impressive win over Krzysztof Glowacki for the vacant WBO cruiserweight belt, said he would like to face IBF champion Mairis Briedis (27-1, 19 KOs) in a unification bout. The Briton also did not rule out a confrontation with the WBC champion Ilunga Makabu (28-2, 25 KOs). Former world champion Tony Bellew commented on the compatriot's plans in an interview with Sky Sports.
Eddie Hearn strongly believes that Lawrence Okolie (15-0, 12 KOs) will defeat Krzysztof Głowacki (31-2, 19 KOs) to win the vacant WBO cruiserweight belt. The British promoter said that he has even begun to negotiate a unification fight of his boxer and Ilunga Makabu (28-2, 25 KOs), who owns the WBC championship belt.
Lawrence Okolie (15-0, 12 KOs) ratings has increased significantly after Saturday's victory over Nikodem Jezewski. The Briton knocked out the Pole in the second round and successfully returned to the ring after more than a year layoff.
