Black Excellence: Lawrence Okolie Humbles Krzysztof Glowacki To Become WBO Cruiserweight Champion

by Duke Magazine

Lawrence Okolie has become Britain’s fifth men’s world champion after he dramatically knocked out Poland’s Krzysztof Glowacki in the sixth round to claim the WBO cruiserweight title at The SSE Arena in Wembley on Sunday.

Lawrence Okolie demolished Krzysztof Glowacki with a huge right hand to launch his reign as the new WBO cruiserweight champion.

The undefeated 28-year-old athlete has joined the league of Tony Bellew, David Haye and Johnny Nelson, who previously held world crowns in the 200lb class, and promoter Eddie Hearn announced his desire to make unification fights.

Prodding out a range-finding jab, Okolie followed up with a right hand to push Glowacki back onto his heels in the opening round.

The Pole was being picked off by the longer limbs of Okolie, who stabbed out jabs and stinging body shots in the second round.

Okolie continued to target Glowacki’s ribs in the third, then intensified his assault in the fourth round as a right hand wobbled his 34-year-old opponent.

At the sixth round of the bout, a destructive right hand dumped Glowacki on his back and he clambered unsteadily to his feet, prompting referee McDonnell to signal Okolie’s triumph.
