He has managed to hold an amazing record with zero losses in his 15 professional matches to this date. Due to his long reach and punching power, Okolie has managed to become the Commonwealth, British, and European cruiserweight titleholder, respectively, at a very young age.

Born on December 16, 1992, in Hackney, London, Lawrence is the son of Nigerian parents. Other than that, there is no information regarding his parents and other family members. Nonetheless, it is known that he studied at Stoke Newington School.

In the next year, on January 18, 2017, Okolie made a huge decision and turned professional—signed a deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport—in the cruiserweight division. After turning professional, his first match took place on March 25, 2017, at the Manchester Arena against Geoffrey Cave. The match ended very quickly, with Okolie gaining the victory.

His last match was against Nikodem Jezewski, which took place on December 12, 2020, in London, England. The match was ended by TKO, and Okolie successfully won the vacant WBO International cruiserweight title.
