Lawrence Okolie v Dilan Prasovic Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions
Lawrence Okolie steps into the ring for his second fight this year when he battles Dilan Prasovic at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s title bout with Oleksandr Usyk.
The WBO cruiserweight champion will make his first title defence after he defeated Krzysztof Glowacki back in March to win the vacant belt.
The 28-year-old has won all of his 16 professional fights since making his debut at the Manchester Arena against Geoffrey Cave – 13 of his 16 wins have come by way of knockout.
He has stopped his last six opponents and will be looking to add knockout number 14 to his CV in front of a massive sell out crowd in London.
Dilan Prasovic is also unbeaten as a professional. The Montenegro fighter has won 15 bouts with 12 of them being knockouts.
Boxing records can be misleading. Yes, Prasovic is unbeaten, and he can knock fighters out, but the calibre of fighters he has faced before do not match up to Okolie.
With all due respect, this is a massive step up for Prasovic, and quite honestly, I cannot see him causing Okolie any problems.
Okolie packs a big punch. He is not the kind of fighter that rushes in to get a quick victory. He is happy assessing his opponent on the fly, before letting his hands go. I am backing him to feel his way into the fight before unleashing a knockout punch in the fifth round.
Lawrence Okolie v Dilan Prasovic Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter Predictions
Lawrence Okolie: “Being world champion is the point that everyone calls the top, but it’s not really the top. You put your flag there, you talk about conquering it, you get your rest stop, get the drinks in, the T-shirt saying, ‘I climbed Mount Everest’. But there’s still more for the legendary climbers, the ones who go beyond that pat on the back, that T-shirt. The ones who say, ‘Hang on, there’s less help that way, it’s more dangerous, there’s less harness, but less people who have done it’. I always saw myself getting to that world title stage, I always thought I was a good amateur. So, to get that sense of satisfaction I now need to push it as far as I can, going unbeaten. Being a history-maker will give me that sense of satisfaction and even if it didn’t work out I’d still be happy that I pushed for that status.”
