Lawrence Okolie scored a wide unanimous decision over Isaac Chamberlain at the 02 Arena, London, with scorecards of 98-89, 96-90, 97-89 to settle a local derby which had been dubbed British Beef.

However, despite the so-called bad blood and pre-fight antics the fight failed to live up to the hype and played out to a rather messy and dull affair as both fighters spent most of the fight grappled in a physical clinch fest.

However, it was Okolie who was the stronger man, scoring two knockdowns in the contest, securing a dominant victory over his London rival. It certainly wasn’t a crowd-pleasing performance but Okolie now moves 8-0-0 with 6 knockouts.
