Heavyweight rivals Fabio Wardley and Frazer Clarke squared off for the British and Commonwealth Titles on Easter Sunday in what can only be described as a ‘Bad Blood’ clash that set the O2 Arena ablaze with anticipation.

With the stage set for their epic showdown, fans pondered whether Clarke’s illustrious amateur pedigree would outshine Wardley’s meteoric rise through the professional ranks?

Clarke, a decorated amateur with a glittering resume adorned with titles and medals from the Olympics, World Championships, and Commonwealth Games, entered the ring with a legacy of success that spoke volumes of his skill and technical ability.

On the other side, Wardley, once a white-collar boxer who transitioned to the professional scene, had carved his path to prominence with grit, determination, and a string of hard-fought victories.

But, despite a brilliant display of boxing from both men, the content was ruled a draw – with the judges scoring the bout 114-113 (Wardley), 115-112 (Clarke), 113-113.
