WBO cruiserweight champion Lawrence Okolie is looking to stamp his name down in the history books of his weight division.

On Saturday night, Okolie will make his first defense when he faces unbeaten challenger Dilan Prasovic as part of the supporting undercard to the Anthony Joshua vs. Oleksandr Usyk showdown at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Okolie captured the WBO world title back in March, when he knocked out Polish veteran Krzysztof Glowacki.

When his career is done, Okolie wants to be regarded in the same light as great cruiserweights like Usyk, Evander Holyfield and David Haye.

He wants to follow in their footsteps by unifying world titles in his weight division. The entire division opened up in 2019, when Usyk vacated all four of his world titles to move up in weight to pursue a fight with Joshua.

The main targets in the near future - are IBF champion Mairis Briedis and WBC king Ilunga Makabu.

Eventually Okolie wants to head up to heavyweight, as most top cruiserweights have done in the past, but before he considers moving in that direction he wants to capture a few more world tiles.

"I could go down as one of the best cruiserweights of all time," Okolie told Sky Sports.

"Right now you've got the likes of Usyk who's boxing Anthony Joshua in the main event. You've got David Haye, Evander Holyfield and then the rest are very good fighters. But I feel like with unifications, I have the opportunity to stamp myself as one of the best cruiserweights ever.

"When I can say with my résumé that I'm one of the best cruiserweights, then I can start thinking about moving up."
