THERE has been a hold up making the Lawrence Okolie versus Isaac Chamberlain fight for February 3 at the O2 next year.

The London cruiserweights have an escalating rivalry and have had a couple of heated run ins. Promoter Eddie Hearn wants to make that fight for next year but so far Chamberlain’s team have not accepted the offer.

“They both got offered the same deal, Lawrence accepted it and Isaac didn’t, maybe not Isaac but Ted Bami and the team didn’t,” Hearn said.
