How to watch Okolie vs Light: live stream and TV channel for boxing tonight
It’s been 13 months now since we last saw ‘The Sauce’ in action, with his plodding and rambling second defense of the WBO world heavyweight title against Michal Cieslak, followed by an ugly and protracted split from promoters Matchroom and Eddie Hearn.
Now associated with Ben Shalom and Boxxer, Okolie is refocused on his project of becoming the first undisputed 200lbs champion since a certain Oleksandr Usyk, whom he would like to imitate by then climbing the ranks of heavyweights.
Light, the undefeated New Zealander who won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, now stands in his way.
The 31-year-old has 20 straight pro wins to his name with 12 saves, although it was a clear step up for the WBO World, International and Eastern champion, who had to defy a late knockdown to defeat Brandon Glanton on points in Florida. back in December.
