I think Lawrence Okolie vs Chris Billam-Smith will be a rugged and rough affair; I won’t be expecting the sweet-science in the purest sense. Okolie will be using his physicality to try and control Billam-Smiths offence and prevent his assaults whilst trying to land heavy power-shots.

Okolie is more tested, but is known for having dull fights against tough opponents where he will utilise the clinch in a similar fashion to how Klitschko uses the clinch; it’s not great to watch, it’s not pretty, but can help someone to win fights whilst preventing an opponent from having any success.

In short, I think Okolie wins this fight by late TKO/KO in a rather dull affair, I won’t be expecting fire-works or great exchanges to occur in this match.
