Lawrence Okolie takes 20 seconds to win professional debut

Lawrence Okolie made an amazing start to his pro career winning with a huge KO in the first twenty seconds!

Lawrence Okolie made a stunning start to his professional career with an explosive knockout victory in the first round.

The exciting cruiserweight took just 20 seconds to stop Geoffrey Cave at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night.

Okolie is one of the crop of amateur stars who have signed for Matchroom and made an impressive start to life in the paid ranks.

The 24-year-old was in the ring after Anthony Crolla's tough points loss at the hands of Jorge Linares, but was as vicious as he was victorious.

Cave had himself only boxed twice before but from the moment he started moving clockwise, Okolie was waiting.

A three-punch combination, starting and ending with a right, saw Cave topple back into the ropes before Okolie ended it with another ramrod right.

"I managed to keep my focus and didn't get overawed by the occasion," he told Sky Sports.
