Lawrence Okolie destroyed Nikodem Jezewski on Saturday in London on the Anthony Joshua-Kubrat Pulev card, put down the pole three times and held it for two rounds.
Okolie, a 2016 Olympic gold medalist from London, should have fought Glowacki on Saturday, but Glowacki had to retire after testing positive for COVID-19.
Jezewski (19-1-1, 9 KOs) agreed to fight Okolie five days in advance. Maybe that wasn’t the best decision.
Okolie (15-0, 12 KOs) landed a right to the body that forced Jezewski to kneel one knee around the middle of the opening round. And the winner was just getting started.
He injured Jezewski with a right to the head, which shook him. Moments later, Okolie set him down with another right on the head and injured him badly.
In round 2, another right hand put Jezewski on all fours. He could get up, but he couldn’t go on. The fight was stopped at 1:45 a.m..
In a preliminary fight, heavyweight expert Hughie Fury (25-3, 14 KOs) survived a cut above his left eye and defeated Mariusz Wach (36-7, 19 KOs) by an almost exclusive decision in a 10-round -Decision fight.
He has won two fights in a row since he was featured by Alexander Povetkin last August.
