Lawrence Okolie vs David Light LIVE RESULT: Simpson DROPS Neves in round 1 – TV, stream, ring-walk time



What’s been said?

Both fighters faced off on Friday and here is what they had to say.

The champion, Okolie, said: “He’s coming to win. It sets you up for a lot of openings.

“You don’t get to his position overlooking people ever.

“It’s a nice safe place to hide behind the underdog.

“When I see him I know what he really is. I’m prepared for what he may bring and will do what I need to do.

“Saturday’s going to come. One of us is going to win and the other one’s going to become irrelevant.


“I’m hoping for three fights. That’s what me and the team are working towards.

“Obviously I have to stay injury free, but I am expecting three fights this year

“I’ve stayed in shape, and kept my mind focused on what I love to do, which is boxing.

“I’m just looking forward to getting in there and doing my job.”

Meanwhile, Light said: “I’m not here on somebody’s else’s terms… I’ve earned the shot.

“I’m coming to win. I know he’s a proud man and he’s going to defend with everything he’s got.

“I’m not reinventing the wheel. You’ve got to punch the other person more than they punch you. I’ve done the work.


 “We’ve had our eye on Okolie for a few years.

“We knew this was happening and we’ve been preparing for it for a few years now. I’ve known that this is what it was going to be.

“Okolie got bits that he can be exploited too. He’s obviously got a massive right hand, he’s got the height and he uses his height. He can avoid danger in that way.”
