I’M looking forward to Lawrence Okolie vs Isaac Chamberlain at the 02 on February 3 as much as I’ve ever looked forward to a fight I’ve been working on.

For the first time two fighters I’ve been following since the start of their pro careers, since before that in Okolie’s case, are topping the bill and inevitably that makes it more personal.

January’s a quiet month. It’s a good time to get out to gyms, the lack of fight nights leaves me suffering withdrawal otherwise, and I’ve been down to the Cool Box in Bethnal Green and Miguel’s in Brixton to visit both men.
