Fabio Wardley v Frazer Clarke: Fight date, time, venue, undercard & how to watch

Fabio Wardley and Frazer Clarke will finally settle their differences in a British heavyweight title showdown in London on Easter Sunday - here's everything you need to know ahead of the bout.

Clarke was all-set to challenge the British heavyweight champion last year, but Big Fraze was pulled out of the bout by his promoter Ben Shalom, just moments before purse bids were due to take place.

However, fight fans will get their wish with the pair now doing battle on Sunday 31st March.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the bout...

Fabio Wardley v Frazer Clarke

Fabio Wardley v Frazer Clarke - Date

The fight will take place on Sunday 31st March 2024, after details were confirmed during the undercard of Joshua Buatsi v Dan Azeez in February.

The British Boxing Board of Control originally ordered this contest to take place by the end of September 2023. 

That had fight fans in a frenzy ahead of what looked a terrific match, but promoted Shalom pulled Clarke out of the contest.

Fabio Wardley v Frazer Clarke - Venue

The showdown has been confirmed to be taking place at the O2 Arena in London - the same venue that has played host to a plethora of other big fight nights, as well as pop concerts.

It held the historic all-women's card in 2022, when Claressa Shields overcame Savannah Marshall in the headline fight of the night.

Sky Sports have a deal with Shalom’s BOXXER promotion and the contest will be broadcast on that service.

Fabio Wardley v Frazer Clarke - will there be any belts on the line?

Wardley is the British heavyweight champion and that title will be up for grabs. 

The Suffolk slugger has held the belt since he beat Nathan Gorman in 2022.

Clarke is a highly experienced amateur performer, but the Staffordshire puncher is light on professional bouts and this contest will mark the biggest clash the 32-year-old has contested in the paid ranks.

Fabio Wardley Record

17-0 (16 KOs)

Wardley came from a white-collar boxing background and the Ipswich man looked a little raw in the early part of his early professional career.

The Suffolk slugger still has an unorthodox approach, but that hasn’t stopped Wardley winning all of his 17 pro bouts. 

A whopping 16 of those victories have come by stoppage and the 29-year-old has excellent victories over Gorman, David Adeleye and Nick Webb on his card.

Frazer Clarke Record

8-0 (6 KOs)

Clarke won a bronze medal in the 2020 Olympic Games and the 32-year-old is a perfect eight wins from eight professional contests.

Big Fraze has yet to face a serious challenge in the paid ranks, but six of his eight victories have come by stoppage and he has recently moved up in class.

The Burton brawler has beaten Mariusz Wach and Dave Allen in his latest two bouts.
