    • Lawrence Okolie’s mandatory cruiserweight title defense against David Light, previously planned for March 11th, has been bumped back to the 25th and moved to Manchester’s AO Arena. Okolie (18-0, 14 KO), who appears to have resolved his acrimonious contract clash with Eddie Hearn, fights for the first time since winning an ugly decision over Michal Cieslak last February. This also marks his first fight under new trainer SugarHill Steward, whom he joined forces with last week after parting ways with Shane McGuigan.
