The Blackpool man has been preparing for his crunch showdown with Rio Olympian and rising AJ Boxing star Okolie by spending time away from his partner and son in his dad's caravan in Eccleston, Lancashire, and believes his humble surroundings will inspire him to put Okolie in his place.

Askin halted Craig Kennedy in six to claim the Lonsdale belt at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff in May 2017 before stopping Scotland's Stephen Simmons inside two rounds at York Hall in March, and is aiming to make it three KO's on the bounce at Wembley this Saturday.

This fight could well be fight of the night. But WTF did Okalie relinquish the Commonwealth title?!

This is indeed a step up fight for Okolie but ring rust will go against Matty. Okolie will win by knockout.
