Okolie vs. Cieslak Press Conference

Lawrence Okolie will make the second defence of his WBO cruiserweight title when he takes on Poland's Michal Cieslak at the O2 Arena in London.

Okolie was hoping he'd be facing IBF champion Mairis Briedis in a unification clash, but a mandatory defence against Jai Opetaia scuppered those plans.

This maybe one of Okolie's last fights at 200lbs before he makes the move to heavyweight, but the fomer Olympian will have to be at his best with Cieslak coming into this fight on the back of two stoppage wins. 

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Okolie vs. Cieslak.
