British cruiserweight Isaac Chamberlain is enjoying his training camp for ‘British Beef’ on February 3 with sessions alongside 200 pound stars Aleksandr Usyk and Mateusz Masternak.
The 23 year-old, undefeated in nine bouts with four stoppages, faces off against UK rival Lawrence Okolie at The O2 in London with a soon-to-be-added title on the line.
Chamberlain and Okolie are notoriously embroiled in back and forth exchanges ahead of their contest, whilst the Brixton man couldn’t really have picked much better preparation for the Capital collision.

Usyk is deep in training for a World Boxing Super Series semi-final unification with WBC champion Mairis Briedis, whilst ex-European ruler and interim world title challenger Masternak is riding a run of four straight victories.
At this stage of his young pro career, Chamberlain will be soaking up the experience like a sponge before embarking on the tough job of taking Okolie’s ‘0’ on the Matchroom event.
Whoever comes out on top next month will surely be pushed towards a British title shot in the summer, although dependent on the outcome could feature in a rematch.
