Lawrence Okolie has vowed to defend his throne against Chris Billam-Smith when they face off in the weekend

Okolie will be facing Billam-Smith, an ex-sparring partner turned rival, at the Vitality stadium in Bournemouth.

The Nigeria-descent British fighter, althoghu out of the ring for almost a year, shook off ring rust over 12 rounds against mandatory challenger David Light in March.

Okolie is a big cruiserweight, six foot five inches tall is now putting the belt on the line against Smith who is also taking a chance at world title.

More to that, the fight is taking place at Chris’ hometown and such may motivate him against Okolie, who said “I’m going to devastate him.”

Okolie told Sky Sports News “The  way Chris fights, he’s always all action. He comes to throw a lot of punches, put a lot of pressure on where he’s the home fighter, he’s going to have 15,000 people screaming for him, hoping that he can dethrone me,” .

“So I’m going to have to be devastating and he’s going to make it very easy for me” he said.
