Delicious Orie will now face increased pressure after qualifying for the 2024 Olympics and winning the European Games on Sunday.
He won the gold medal at that event in Poland by defeating five top international super-heavyweights in a row.
It raises the prospect of him being the first British super-heavyweight to win Olympic gold since Anthony Joshua in London in 2012.
“For me, it’s a slightly different journey,” Orie told Sky Sports. “I’m going to follow in his [Joshua’s] footsteps, but in a slightly different direction.
“I’m on this journey, and even though I’m being pushed a little, it’s normal for a super-heavyweight to be pushed.
“I’m taking my time a little bit more.”
Rather than hurrying, he wants to improve as a boxer, and the Europeans last week were useful in that regard.
“The more fights I had, the more comfortable and confident I became in the ring. The more shots I see, the better I can react to them, and everything just flows so much better,” Orie added. “The more shots I see, the better I can react to them, and everything just flows so much better.”
“If you can cope with that high pressure of intensity constantly for nine minutes, you go a long way, and I feel like I was able to last week.”
He aims to continue this until Paris 2024.
“Last week’s experience was absolutely invaluable. I had five solid fights against good opponents who wanted to win, and it’s only given me more confidence for the Olympics next year, knowing that if I can go five fights and a lot more after that, I can go all the way in the Olympic stages,” he continued.
He will be seen as a strong medal contender for the United Kingdom. But he feels he can take the pressure.
