Lawrence Okolie has shut down heavyweight Dillian Whyte with a shocking 20-second Twitter video.
The pair have been beefing since Okolie’s win over Tamas Lodi to retain his WBA cruiserweight title in London last month.
Whyte wanted Okolie to fight undefeated cruiserweight Richard Riakorphe, a boxer Whyte manages, but that never came to fruition.
Okolie, instead, called out Whyte himself, who didn’t take too kindly to it.
Whyte, last night, said: “Clearly he smokes a lot of crack, he’s a media whore, he’s just trying to use my name to get some light on his career.
“He talks a lot of s**** and everyone hates him.
“Lawrence Okolie can’t even beat his meat properly, is he dumb?”
We aren’t quite sure what that last comment means, but the bitter trash-talking continues to heat up.
The 26-year-old WBA and British cruiserweight champion Okolie has responded to Whyte’s comments with a video of the pair sparring, showing him 'slapping Whyte about.'
Doesn’t look bad for a “media whore."
Okolie posted the video this morning captioned: “@DillianWhyte and anyone else I don’t give a toss about in the industry.”
A fight could potentially happen, though, to settle the beef.
Whyte called for it during his outburst, saying: “We can fight at catchweight. I’ll just mash him up.”
You can see why Okolie’s called him out, a fight against Whyte, who has won 25 of his 26 bouts, would surely be the biggest of his career so far.
Whyte’s only defeat came against the champ Anthony Joshua no less, back in 2015.
Okolie is undefeated in his first 11 professional fights, winning eight by knockout, and he already has his sights set on his next opponent.
“Next fight! March 23rd. Copper Box arena, Okolie vs Camacho for the BRITISH, COMMONWEALTH AND WBA CONTINENTAL BELTS. The talk will soon stop, and the violence will begin.”
If Okolie beats Camacho, and the beef between the two Brits continues, could we see it settled inside the ring?News Now - Sport News
