Wardley Vs. Clarke: Start Time, TV Schedule, Ring Walks
The O2 will play host to a brawl that’s got the British boxing realm in a right twist. On March 31st, the air will be thick with tension as Fabio Wardley tangles with Frazer Clarke for the heavyweight crown, and you can catch all the drama on Sky Sports or Peacock if you’re across the pond.
Wardley, the reigning terror with a flawless record, has been bulldozing through the ranks with the finesse of a wrecking ball in a china shop. His last spectacle involved turning Adeleye into a pile of rubble under the bright lights of Riyadh.
Clarke is the fresh-faced killer with Olympic metal to boot. Just a babe in the professional woods with eight scraps under his belt, yet he’s already showing he’s more than just a pretty face by sending folks like David Allen packing before tea time.
These two have been circling each other like sharks at feeding time, and after a bit of a kerfuffle with the money men, the gloves are finally off. It’s all been a bit ‘he said, she said,’ but now it’s time to stop the chinwagging and start the chin checking.
Wardley’s chuffed to bits to be the main event at The O2, a place he reckons is like his second lounge. He’s ready to teach Clarke a lesson that’s not in the Olympic syllabus – the art of taking a nap in the ring.
Clarke’s having none of it, mind. He’s been gagging for this fight and reckons it’s about time he showed Wardley what’s what. He’s promised to cart the belts back to Burton upon Trent, and frankly, he’s sick of the back-and-forth natter.
Ben Shalom, the big cheese at BOXXER, is all in. After last year’s palaver, he’s dead set on serving up the scraps the fans are dying to see. He’s pegging this one as a proper dust-up, the kind that’ll have folks gabbing for ages.
So, keep your peepers peeled for more news on the undercard, which is shaping up to be just as spicy. And mark down February 7th for the pre-fight natter, where Wardley and Clarke will no doubt have a few choice words for each other.
