Okolie and Chamberlain press conference boxing 2018

Kiran Rai the London Post and Daily Mail 24 reporter covered the press conference this morning and interview Okolie and Chamberlain and Eddie Hearn alongside Bimba photography.

Lawrence Okolie warned Isaac Chamberlain to expect a painful dose of reality as the London rivals were reunited for their final press conference.The cruiserweight duo made confident predictions as they were brought the head to head in front of the watching media before Saturday’s fight at The O2, live on Sky Sports. Chamberlain promised to “win at all costs” with two unbeaten records on the line, but Okolie insists his opponent’s limitations will be harshly exposed this weekend.

“It’s all about believing in myself, said Okolie. Isaac has got people like [trainer] Ted [Bami] lying to him. He’s got strength and conditioning lying to him, he’s got friends around him that aren’t really his friends, lying to him

“Overall of that time, building him up to the point where you look at reality and then you have to look at just make believe.

“The reality is Isaac and Ted talking about power, stoppages, so on and so forth. I actually look back and I watch Isaac’s fights and I watch the reality standing in front of me, and I think his strategy to stop people is the same every single time.

“The problem with Isaac and Ted is that they are planning on winning this fight on what I don’t do well. It’s not Isaac’s so good, it’s Lawrence is going to get tired late, or Lawrence is going to make this mistake or that mistake.
