We had to share the latest British Beef boxing match happening in just a few weeks in association with AJ BXNG and Matchroom Boxing!

Lawrence Okolie and Isaac Chamberlain are screaming a KO win – putting their unbeaten record to the test next month at The O2 in London on February 3. It will be showing live on Sky Sports hosted by Eddie Hearn in association with AJ BXNG.

There was a bit of heat in the press conference for the ‘British Beef’, where the pair were introduced by Eddie Hearn and our champ Anthony Joshua MBE.

According to Matchroom Boxing, Team GB Rio Olympian Okolie has been saying, “I am better than him in every single department. If he comes at me, it’s over quickly. If he boxes on the backfoot and look to take me rounds, I’ll show my boxing pedigree. Anything he brings to the table, I will answer it and do so with a brutal KO.

“He’s motivated by money, I’m motivated by my ambitions as a fighter. I’m nine months into my career and I feel ready to have a fight with someone in the top five in Britain, so this is normal really.

“It comes from jealousy from him and his coach, Ted Bami. They said that they’ve been watching me since I went to the Olympics. We’ve known each other for a long time and they see me as a big money fight and now they’ve got it – let’s see if it’s too early for me or if it’s too early for him.

“The people in his gym know what it takes to get to the Olympics, because they tried and failed. He’s never taken a risk as an amateur or a pro so he can’t talk about levels or pedigree as he’s done nothing to show it and he’s only boxed at Southern Area level. I haven’t boxed at that level yet but I’m taking that step-up now.

“Can Isaac take my power? Can Isaac take me into the later rounds? We’re going to find out. I see Isaac as a good fighter, very fast, a solid boxing IQ and he’s resilient, but that’s not enough against me as I going to get to him and get to him viciously.”

Talk about coming with the hardest talk…we’ll really see who has the last laugh out of the two – hard to tell who’s got the upper hand!

“I’m very confident,” said Okolie’s opponent Chamberlain. “We’ve been preparing for this fight for a while, I can’t wait.  People will see on how I deal with him and adapt in the fight.

“I’ve sparred and boxed big hitters already, he waffles a lot and he talks to much, his ego is too high and when I beat him, it’ll knock him down a peg.

“I’m not the one that talks, that’s him. I know the way he acts and in the face to face, I could see through him. He has no heart and that will show on February 3.

“I’m in a good place and the excitement is real for this fight. It’s going to be an amazing night and to headline at The O2 after coming from nothing, I am so thankful and humbled.”
