  • The All-British Heavyweight clash has been brewing for more than a year
  • Wardley vs Clarke Results LIVE and updates as the action unfolds on Sunday

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.

Wardley vs Clarke Results

Callum Simpson vs Dulla Mbabe

Callum Simpson stops Dulla Mbabe in the fourth round after a very one-sided contest.

Mbabe spent the majority of it on the backfoot and along the ropes, offering the odd single-punch counter whilst Simpson was unloading on him and attempting to create the openings.

In the fourth round, a right hand got through that left Mbabe clearly in no state to continue.

Riley vs Lawal

Viddal Riley takes a comfortable 98-92, 99-91 X2 decision over Mikael Lawal in their Cruiserweight bout.

In a largely unentertaining fight, Riley outboxed Lawal on the backfoot with Lawal unable to close the gap and let off his own shots before Riley was out of range.

There was a post-fight scuffle between Viddal Riley, Isaac Chamberlain and Cheavon Clarke.

Ben Whittaker

Ben Whittaker was surprisingly extended the distance by Leon Willings after scoring a first round knockdown.

Whittaker, who won a 78-73 points decision, struggled to trouble Willings in the later rounds after he got used to the power.

Willings had his own success in the fight, catching Whittaker numerous times with counters.

Both men showed a great chin but it was Whittaker’s chin that handed him a comfortable win.

Marku vs Kongo

Chris Kongo scored a career-best victory over the undefeated Florian Marku.

Kongo won a ten-round unanimous decision with scorecards of 96-94, 96-93 and 98-92.

Marku struggled with the speed and movement of Kongo and couldn’t get off his shots when he managed to break the distance.

Wardley vs Clarke

Fabio Wardley and Frazer Clarke battled to a split decision draw in their eagerly-anticipated British Heavyweight title fight.

Scores: 113-113, 114-112 Wardley, 115-112 Clarke

Wardley scored a knockdown in round five and Clarke was deducted a point for low blows, as he was in the Dave Allen fight.

The pair engaged in a tremendous heavyweight slugfest for the fight fans with both men visibly exhausted by the final bell.
