Okolie vs Chamberlain: Isaac Chamberlain mocks Lawrence Okolie with newspaper advert
Last Updated: 26/01/18 12:55pm
Isaac Chamberlain has taken his 'British Beef' rivalry beyond the back pages with a spoof 'Work Wanted' advert in Lawrence Okolie's local newspaper.
The Brixton cruiserweight paid for a slot in Thursday's Hackney Gazette which requested an alternative job for fellow Londoner Okolie following their grudge fight at The O2 on February 3, live on Sky Sports.
Chamberlain drew up a CV for Okolie, including mocking references to his past employment at a fast food restaurant, and a defeat at the 2016 Rio Olympics Games.
Referring to Okolie's education, it read: "Can now count to 10 after being dropped by Chamberlain."
In the 'Previous Experience' section, he even took a swipe at Okolie's 'Sauce' nickname, continuing: "Privileged to have shared the ring with Isaac Chamberlain.
"Turned up at the Olympics, went home from the Olympics. Nice holiday though.
"Three consecutive 'employee of the month' awards. First person to do a triple flip with a burger patty. Only employee to give out extra sauce."
Chamberlain's clash with Okolie is at the top of another busy bill as exciting super-welterweight Ted Cheeseman takes on Carson Jones, while Reece Bellotti defends his Commonwealth featherweight belt against Ben Jones.
Okolie's fellow Team GB fighter Joshua Buatsi is targeting his fourth professional win and is joined on the undercard by heavyweight Nick Webb, middleweight Felix Cash, and super-flyweight Charlie Edwards.
