Unbeaten heavyweight rivals Fabio Wardley and Frazer Clarke will collide in a ‘Bad Blood’ showdown for the British and Commonwealth Titles, it was confirmed on the Buatsi-Azeez broadcast.
Reigning champion Wardley (17-0, 16 KOs) is on an incredible 16-fight KO streak, which has seen him steamroll his way through the domestic division.
The 29-year-old from Ipswich looked at his devastating best last time out when dismantling David Adeleye on the Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou undercard on October 28th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Tokyo 2020 Olympic Bronze Medallist Clarke (8-0, 6 KOs) is just eight fights into his promising professional career.
Last year, ‘Big Fraze’ banked ten valuable rounds against former world title challenger Mariusz Wach before retiring domestic rival David Allen in the sixth round to continue his unbeaten run.
Fabio Wardley Discusses Six Rounds With Frazer Clarke Last Year
Frazer Clarke told Sky Sports, “We shared a little bit in the ring, so we know a little bit about each other. He can’t take nothing from that; you’ve seen a bit of me, I’ve seen a bit of you, and I’m sure we’re gonna see a lot of each other.”
“Probably a year ago (six rounds). He’s improved massively since then, from what I’ve seen. It was before the Kamil fight – that was probably my worst performance as a pro.”
Wardley had a similar description to talkSPORT: “Yeah, we sparred not long ago. It was a very casual spar; we only did six rounds. And we both admitted there’s nothing to be taken from it. I don’t think either of us are dumb enough to try and read into that too much.”
“When you’re in sparring, you’re working on stuff, you’re practising stuff; you’re not in your full game. You’re trying to implement certain things. To say, ‘I caught him with a great right hand; that’s his weakness’ would be silly on my part.”
