My Pick

The 29-year-old Wardley of Ipswich, England, climbs into the ring with a perfect mark of 17-0 with 16 Ko’s and has just 49 rounds of experience under his belt since turning pro in 2017. Power is obviously the name of his game as 94.1 per cent of his wins have come by stoppage. The only man to go the distance with him was Jakub Wojkicback in April, 2017 in Wardley’s debut. He stands 6-feet-5-inches tall with a 78-inch reach and is managed by fellow heavyweight Dillian Whyte.

Wardley won the vacant British Heavyweight Title in August 2020 by stopping Simon Vallily in the third round and has defended it against Nick Webb, Nathan Gorman and David Adeleye. He also has wins over Eric Molina, Michael Polite Coffie, Daniel Martz, Richard Lartey, Dennis Lewandowski and Chris Healey.

The 32-year-old Clarke boasts a perfect mark of 8-0 with 6 Ko’s and has just 32 rounds of pro experience to his name since making his debut in 2022 and 16 of those rounds came in his last two fights against Dave Allen and Mariusz Wach. He’s stopped Jake Darnell in one round, Ariel Bracamonte in two, Pencho Tsvetkov in one, Kevin Espinodla in four and Bogdan Dinu in two while being taken the six-round distance by Kamil Sokolowski and 10 rounds by Wach. Clarke’s first five opponents entered the ring with a combined record of 36-40 while Dinu was 20-4 so he’s taking another a step up in class again against Allen.

Clarke stands 6-feet-6-inches tall with a 78-inch reach which gives him an inch edge in height over Wardley. He’s also shown great power as a pro as with a 75 per cent knockout ratio. Clarke won numerous medals as an amateur where he had wins over Lenier Pero, Sergey Kuzmin and Tony Yoka but was stopped by Joe Joyce a couple of times as well as being beaten on points by Joyce. He also lost decisions to Yoka, Joseph Parker, Otto Wallin and Anthony Joshua.


Wardley has enough power to stop just about anybody and it will be interesting to see how Clarke handles that power as his chin hasn’t really been tested as of yet. Of course, Clarke has fine power himself but his toughest opponents up to now came when he was an amateur. Both men have good chins so this fight could come down to boxing skills or whoever is willing to take the initiative and let his hands go first and keep letting them go. Wardley is just three years younger but should be entering his prime and I’m expecting him to emerge with his hand raised on Sunday.

I’ll give Wardley the edge here due to his power.
