Wardley vs Clarke: The Brutal ‘Bad Blood’ Showdown Ends in a Draw!

By Amy A Kaplan - 04/01/2024 - Comments

The O2 in London is set to explode with BOXXER’s “Bad Blood” event on Easter Sunday. Fabio Wardley and Frazer Clarke are leading the charge, ready to throw down in a fight that’s been brewing with more heat than a kettle on the boil. Sunday’s Peacock USA live stream begins at 1:00 p.m. ET.

These undefeated giants are itching for a scrap, each aiming to claim the throne as Britain’s heavyweight king. After a botched purse bid last year turned up the heat, Clarke, the mandatory challenger for Wardley’s British Title, had to step back. But the back-and-forth banter since has only fanned the flames for this Easter showdown.

But that’s not all – the undercard is jam-packed with brawls you won’t want to miss. Florian Marku and Chris Kongo are set to bury the hatchet in the ring after a presser last year nearly turned into a free-for-all. And let’s not forget Viddal Riley facing Mikael Lawal for the English Cruiserweight Title in a bet365 Wildcard brawl, alongside Alen ‘The Savage’ Babic and Steve Robinson in a heavyweight clash that promises fireworks.

Ben Whittaker, the showboat who’s been lighting up social media, and Callum Simpson, the super middleweight sensation from Barnsley, are rounding out the card, each with sights set on stealing the show.

With over 10,000 tickets already snapped up and more now available due to high demand, this is shaping up to be a night of boxing that’ll be talked about for ages. Don’t miss out, get your tickets at BOXXER.com
