Fabio Wardley hasn't decided on Frazer Clarke rematch

Fabio Wardley hasn't decided on Frazer Clarke rematch

Fabio Wardley has not committed to a rematch with Frazer Clarke.

The two British fighters battled to a thrilling draw in Sunday's (31.03.24) heavyweight bout at London's O2 Arena but Wardley insists that he will have the final say on whether a second fight takes place.

Wardley - who retained his British and Commonwealth titles as a result of the draw - told Sky Sports: "It doesn't have to be immediate. It doesn't have to be at all, necessarily. I still have my belts. I still move forward. Again the ball's still in my court. It's still my decision.

"We'll look at the options. It was a good fight. I don't know if I can do too many of those in my career, take off too much, put my family and friends through too much panic.

"We'll look at things. We'll have a chat with the team, we'll reassess. There are some things on my end I need to sort first and then we'll go again."

Wardley knocked down Clarke in the fifth round of the contest but refused to criticise the officials for the way that the fight was judged.

He said: "I'm not going to start bashing the refs or bashing the judges, that's not my style. It was what it was. It was judged however it was judged.

"Ultimately it was on me to do more in a fight to make it more convincing evidently. Next time around, if we get on, that's what I'll be doing.

"There's positives and negatives to be taken from that. There's parts of the performance I'm proud of, parts of the performance I'm not so proud of. But overall it was a good night of boxing. Maybe not so much boxing, maybe fighting but still.

"It's all I've done in my career to date, have fights that are good, bad, hard, easy and improve and this will be no different."
