AFTER their respective public workouts on Wednesday, London cruiserweights Lawrence Okolie and Isaac Chamberlain had to be separated after an altercation.

Hackney’s Okolie and Brixton’s Chamberlain have fights with different opponents on Saturday (July 1) at the O2 in Greenwich. But the tension between them has increased.

Promoter Eddie Hearn took some responsibility. He described: “He was sitting over there, Okolie, and Isaac was just there. Probably my fault. I went over and I said, ‘Lawrence, Chamberlain’s over there.’
