British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Fabio Wardley discusses potential Frazer Clarke rematch

British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Fabio Wardley spoke at length about a possible rematch with immediate former opponent Frazer Clarke.


Both men formerly met at 02 Arena on Easter Sunday for a bout that turned out to be a successful title defense for Wardley. Though Clarke was knocked down during the fifth round, he continued till the last bell and managed to land a draw.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Wardley said the following on the possibility of a rematch with Clarke:

‘It doesn’t have to be immediate. It doesn’t have to be at all, necessarily. I still have my belts. I still move forward. Again the ball’s still in my court. It’s still my decision.

‘We’ll look at the options. It was a good fight. I don’t know if I can do too many of those in my career, take off too much, put my family and friends through too much panic.

‘We’ll look at things. We’ll have a chat with the team, we’ll reassess. There are some things on my end I need to sort first and then we’ll go again.’

Boxxer promoter Ben Shalom was supportive of a rematch between both men. It also seems that fans are looking forward to it.

‘We’d love to do it straight away,’ Shalom told Sky Sports. ‘I do think Fabio, from looking at his face and I think his nose might be broken there, what a tough man, he’ll need some time. Whenever Fabio’s ready really.

‘Fabio deserves a huge amount of credit because I’ve never seen someone out on their feet but equally so dangerous at the same time. His face was mashed up at times and he kept coming. I think the knockdown and the point deduction probably swung it towards a draw.’

However, there is a big chance the fight might never happen. Wardley seemed to be on the verge of losing his title during the fight, and might want to face training and other things instead of torturing his family once again.
