Okolie sets eyes on WBA title

Lawrence Okolie eyes WBA World title after Usyk vacates


"I've got the green light from Lawrence who said he would be ready to fight Lebedev next," promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports


A showdown with Denis Lebedev in July might be on the cards for Okolie after the division's undisputed champion Oleksandr Usyk confirmed his intention to step up to heavyweight.


Usyk was ordered to defend his WBA 'super' title against regular champion Lebedev, but the undefeated Ukrainian has vacated and will now make his debut in the glamour division against Carlos Takam in May.


"I've spoken to World of Boxing, we've made them an offer. Obviously, he's got to accept that offer but from our side we are ready to go for that fight.


"July is the date I've got in mind for that fight and if Lebedev accepts that fight it could be next."
