Cruiserweights Lawrence Okolie (7-0-0, 6KOs) and Issac Chamberlain (9-0-0, 4KOs) have put pen to paper to set up a huge domestic bout. 

Head of Matchroom Frank Smith confirmed that the fight will take place on the 3rd of February 2018 at the at the O2 Arena, London.

Okolie’s story is one of rags-to-riches. The 24-year-old Hackney born puncher worked in McDonalds just four short years ago but will now headline the 20,000 capacity O2 arena alongside Brixton-born rival Chamberlain.

Both Okolie and 23-year-old Chamberlain remain undefeated professionally and recently clashed on social media.

Team GB Rio Olympian Okolie picked up a sixth career KO win York Hall last week to draw his breakout year to a pleasing end.

Chamberlain comes in to the fight on a run of three consecutive stoppage wins and is well remembered for his efforts against Wadi Camacho (19-7-0, 11KOs) last September picking up the Southern Area belt despite a third round dislocated shoulder.
