Frazer Clarke is not in boxing 'to be a clown'

Frazer Clarke is not in boxing 'to be a clown'

Frazer Clarke insists that he is not in boxing "to be a clown".

The 32-year-old heavyweight is set to come to blows with Fabio Wardley, 29, at the London's O2 arena tonight (31.03.24) as he attempts to grab 'The Pudding Snatcher's' British and Commonwealth titles.

Looking to the bout, 'The Eraser' has said he is simply aiming to "leave victorious" while maintaining his undefeated streak, and emphasised he is "not here to entertain people".

During their face-off at The O2, he said: "It just got very real, seeing Fabio this close to the fight definitely got the heart rate going a bit which is a good thing for me, let's me know I'm alive and that this is real.

"We've both done well selling this fight, but that's over now, it's business time. All the talking should be done in the ring.

"It's just a boxing match, every time I enter the ring I aim to leave victorious and that's all it is now. All those mind games and talking, the bad blood, it's there but at a competitive nature.

"I'm not here to entertain people and be a clown. You see it a lot in boxing these days with people having to do stuff outside the ring to bring attention to themselves.

"I'd like to believe myself and Fabio are both here to act with some integrity and put on a good display."

Fabio agreed with the Olympic bronze medallist, and said he views the match as nothing more than "another step" in his quest to become the undisputed British champion.

He explained: "It's normal now, all the fun and games have been had, all the hard work has been done," said Wardley. "It's really now just full focus mode towards the fight.

"We've had a few face-offs along the way now, I've seen enough of him and we don't need to do too many more theatrics.

"It's been a fantastic ride and fantastic story along the way but this is all this is to me, just another one to tick off and keep the story moving.

"I'm here to entertain and put on a show for fans. It's always going to be a Fabio Wardley win and a knockout."
