The rising cruiserweight star Lawrence Okolie returns to the ring on March 23. He will face Wadi Camacho at the Copper Box Arena in London. We predict Okolie vs Camacho fight will hardly upset the odds and Okolie will enjoy another easy win.
Online sportsbook news in the UK noted that the fight will feature the unification of the British and Commonwealth titles. Each fighter will put his belt on the line. Our Okolie vs Camacho predictions opt for Okolie to collect the both belts. Okolie is less experienced than Camacho but he has an awkward style and punching power similar to the Gypsy King Tyson Fury.
Okolie a fighter you cannot predict
Lawrence Okolie is best known for his victory against Isaac Chamberlain in 2018. The fight that was billed by internet sportsbook news in the UK as one of the most exciting domestic fights of the year. The 26-year-old champ returned to the ring this February to defend his WBA continental cruiserweight belt against the Hungarian journeyman Tamas Lodi. Okolie halted Lodi in the third round to claim a record of 11 wins, eight of which he won by a knockout.
The young British fighter has a real chance to make waves in the cruiserweight division. He dominantly won all his 11 fights. His style is hard to predict. He has a long-ranging jab and an ability to punch hard as the top heavyweights. Despite his short journey Okolie is highly rated among the stars of the sport. Bookmakers predict Okolie vs Camacho to end with another dominant win for Okolie at 3/50 odds, according to uGObet Sportsbook.
Camacho lost 7 fights in his career
Wadi Camacho, 32, from Canning Town holds the Commonwealth cruiserweight belt. He won the belt last November against Arfan Iqbal. In the seventh round against Iqbal, Camacho was able to avenge his previous loss in 2017 and to score the biggest win in his career. However, Camacho who turned professional in 2012, fought 28 bouts, won only 21 and lost 7 fights. Although Camacho (34/5) is more experienced than Okolie, his record can hardly convince spectators that he deserves to win.
