Wardley, Clarke battle to split draw

WBO #6, WBA #11, IBF #12, WBC #15 rated Fabio Wardley (17-0-1, 16 KOs) and 2020 Olympic superheavy bronze medalist Frazer “Big Fraze” Clarke (8-0-1, 6 KOs) battled to an epic draw on Easter Sunday at the O2 Arena in London. The early rounds featured good exchanges with both fighters taking punishment. Wardley hurt Clarke in round five and dropped him with a barrage of punches right at the bell. Clarke was deducted a point for a low blow in round seven. Nose damage to Wardley seemed to take its toll as the momentum shifted to Clarke. The bout was temporarily stopped in round for the ring doctor to check Wardley’s mess of a nose and closing right eye. Both fought hard down the stretch. In the end, scores were 114-113 Wardley, 115-112 Clarke and 113-113. Great fight!

  • After watching this I’ve come to the conclusion that there needs to be a round robin tournament with these UK heavyweights.You have 5 that are about on the same level Wardley, Clarke, Whyte, Joyce & DuBios. None of these guys will ever be world level Champions but they would put on exciting and great for fans fights

  • Fantastic fight! Both are huge punchers with great chins. Classic combination!

  • There were two fights on this card that just flat out sucked, when you have Crusierweights fighting and one has no idea how to cut off the ring and the other just pot shots and really doesn’t want to fight it makes for 10 boring ass rounds. Bigger guys are supposed to try and knock the other guy out (Riley vs Lawal) and the same for the Welterweight fight with Marku vs Kongo and what makes it worse is the people calling the action were all in favor of non-fight boxing. Now the Whittaker vs Willings and yes Willings lost every round , but what he didn’t do was quit trying. I believe only Whittaker out of the winners today has a chance to develop into a world class boxer….

  • So Clarke would have won had he not had the low blow point deduction, but for the fantastic tough battle these two put up I do like the decision that neither of them have a loss on their record.
