  • I just don’t know how good a win this win was for Okolie, Dilan Prasovic looked soft from the opening bell.

  • Looking at his record, I’m wondering exactly what the WBO saw in Prasovic to make them think he was worth being ranked #1.

  • Okolie should move up to HW. He isn’t the type of fighter that Usyk is but the money and opportunity is at the higher weight especially now that Joshua has shown his limitations and is probably on the way out after he loses the rematch. The UK will need a new domestic foil for Fury

  • Who is Prasovic?? Why does he deserve to fight for a title shot?? Okolie needs a better opposition to be considerated a true champion
