Lawrence Okolie returns to the ring on Sunday night to defend his WBO cruiserweight belt against Michal Cieslak.

The champion is preparing for his first fight since defeating Dilan Prasovic on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September, and he will face a fighter who has only one loss in his 22-bout career, with 15 of his victories coming via knockout.

Cieslak, a former World Title Challenger, hasn’t fought since May 2021, when he defeated Yury Kashinsky.

This will be Okolie’s second defense of the championship; he won it in March 2021 and is preparing for a unification fight with the winner of the Mairis Briedis and Jai Opetaia fight or a step up to heavyweight if he wins.
