Frazer Clarke plans to move beyond British title level

Frazer Clarke plans to move beyond British title level

Frazer Clarke sees the British and Commonwealth title as the start of his journey in boxing.

The British fighter takes on Fabio Wardley in London on Sunday (31.03.24) in the most important bout of his career so far but expects the contest to launch a platform for him to go on and win world title belts.

Clarke told reporters: "World titles are the dream for every fighter. We are all trying to achieve them. At this moment, it is just one step at a time because the British and Commonwealth route is a very good and traditional route to go down.

"There are some good names there. We can look back at the British title, and we could go on for ages and ages. I think it is one of these fights where the winner moves on and the loser, [it’s] not that he doesn't have anywhere to go. If you look back at who has fought for the British title, some people fight for the title, lose and that is their ceiling.

"I believe we can both go on past the British title level; there just has to be a winner and a loser."

The Olympic bronze medalist admits that he is keen to box in Saudi Arabia at some point but is focused on building a profile domestically first.

He said of competing in the Middle East: "I would love to, and if you are a boxer and that is not your wish, then you are in the wrong sport.

"It is where everything is happening right now, and I want to go out there and fight in Saudi Arabia. For now, though, I am happy building from home. A lot of the guys who are boxing there have done their days fighting and are just cashing out."
