Israel Adesanya is known for his epic walk-outs. He’d continue the trend across the pond last weekend.

The Walkout

Weeks after he defended his title against Robert Whittaker, the UFC Middleweight Champion would attend a boxing event in at the 02 Arena in London. It was no ordinary appearance for Adesanya however. While he wasn’t fighting he’d make the walk to the boxing ring. 

Adesanya would be there to support one half of the main event. He’d walk out with no other than the WBO Cruiserweight Champion Lawrence Okolie ahead of his fight.

Adesanya wasn’t the only star in Okolie’s entourage. ‘The Last Stylebender’ would be joined by former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. …Talk about a legendary lineup. 

Adesanya would hold a Nigerian flag, while Joshua held up Okolie’s WBO title. What a show-stopping moment. What came afterwards, was nothing short of a solid performance from the cruiserweight champion.

Moving from the walkout and into the ropes, Okolie would outpoint opponent Michal Cieslak for 12 rounds. Going the distance, he’d successfully defend his title, clinching a unanimous decision win.
