    Solid opponent for a voluntary. Goulimarin vs Egorov will likely be on the undercard too.

      I wanna see Okolie unify too. I think he has the ability to be top dog in the division and possibly the size to make waves at heavyweight. I enjoy watching him fight.

        Same here actually- don’t enjoy watching him fight too much though, although he’s become more watchable under Shane.

        I do think he’s a problem for anyone at 200 lbs though, his size, length and athleticism is always gonna be difficult to deal with. He proved me wrong too, when he turned pro he was a guy I thought would be domestic level, but he’s gone: British, Commonwealth, European and is now World Champion, credit where it’s due…

          Okolie isn't terrible to watch any more. The Polish guy he fought on the Joshua-Pulev undercard looked like he was getting electrocuted when Okolie would land anything big. Lol made me almost forgive all the hugging.

            Shane has definitely tightened him up technically, throws the right hand much cleaner than he used to. Okolie will be tough to beat IMO.

              With his freakish dimensions yeah. I'm actually surprised to see him get this far.

                I used to literally say he’s an accident waiting to happen.

                  He’s not. There was a stage I was completely done with watching him fight but he’s always got results and now he has a more fan friendly style. Interested in seeing what he can achieve

                    Really good fight actually, Cieslak is for sure top 10 at 200 lbs, maybe higher. Really looking forward to this one
