The two-time English University National Champion Lawrence Okolie only came to boxing at the age of 17, but quickly established himself as a skilful heavyweight by taking third place at his first international competition, the 2015 Tammer Tournament. Joining the British Lionhearts for Season VI, Okolie’s win over USA Knockouts’ Cam F. Awesome was part of a crucial away win for the side as they got the season off to a brilliant start from which they have never looked back. The big-hitting Londoner followed that with a TKO against Mexico’s Jared Barraza, and took that confidence to Turkey for the AIBA Olympic Qualifier, where he beat Paul Biongolo in the final to take gold and a place at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
