Lawrence Okolie is set to battle Lukasz Rozanski for the WBC World Bridgerweight Championship on Friday  May 24th at the Podpromie Arena in Rzeszow, Poland, streamed live for fans in the UK and Ireland on Sky Sports.

Okolie, a former cruiserweight champion, steps back into the ring, eyeing glory in a new division against the formidable Rozanski, who’s yet to taste defeat. Okolie, who’s apparently run out of people to fight in his own weight class, is now eyeing Rozanski’s shiny Bridgerweight belt. Rozanski, on the other hand, has been knocking people out for fun, with almost all his wins ending with his opponent taking an unexpected nap. He’s become quite the local hero, especially after turning the lights out for Alen Babic last April.

Our London lad Okolie, not to be outdone, boasts of a victory parade that includes sending Rozanski’s compatriot Glowacki to dreamland back in 2021. Fresh from a “spirited debate” with Chris Billam-Smith last May, Okolie’s now up for a bit of a challenge, or so he says, stepping up a weight class because…why not?

Okolie seems to think Rozanski’s power is a good laugh, promising to show him what a real punch feels like. Rozanski, keeping it classy, simply looks forward to defending his title at home, because there’s no place like home for a friendly fight, right?

As BOXXER and Knockout Promotions set the stage for their encore performance in Poland, the boxing world waits with bated breath (or not) to see if Okolie can walk the walk or if Rozanski will have the last laugh in front of his home crowd.
