  • He listened to his trainer and didn’t waste any time doing it. Congratulations, Lawrence.

  • Rozanski just looked horrible. Old, out of shape and clumsy. He had no business in there and he was a reigning world champion.

  • Anyone know why this fight is being called a KO and not a TKO? The referee waved off the fight after giving an 8 count…

    Announcer and Boxrec both say KO.

    • If the three knockdown rule was in effect, that’s ruled a KO rather than a TKO. I’m not sure if that rule was in effect, but that’s one possible explanation.

  • Good victory, but don’t know how to gauge Okolie yet, will have to wait for his next fight to see where he is at. Immediate offensive action from Okolie, but Rozanski looked old and nothing coming back from him.

    • It’s picking up steam. Just wait until we get WBA super and interim champs

    • Actually, I love it. I am a fan of the Bridgerweight division, and a fan of the little boy who saved his sister’s life.

  • So The Sauce is now a 2 division champion. Mazel Tov. Now, if President Trump can become a 2 TIME PRESIDENT, that would be great.
