SAFE to say, Lawrence Okolie, the British and Commonwealth cruiserweight champion, has annoyed a wasp and now can’t get away from it.

The wasp in question, top heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte, recently took umbrage with Okolie’s suggestion that he might soon make the move up in weight and start picking off his fellow Brits one by one and didn’t much like the idea of Okolie posting footage of a sparring session they once shared on social media, either.

Now, with Whyte engaged, poor Okolie, still only 11 fights deep in his pro career, can’t shake free of him.
