It's a card that had been fraught with problems, but kudos to BOXXER for showing resilience and going ahead still. First, the show was delayed a week from June 10 to June 16, then headliner Adam Azim withdrew on fight week with a hand injury.
But the show must go on, so it falls to rising stars Frazer Clarke, Caroline Dubois, Aaron McKenna, Viddal Riley and Isaac Chamberlain to take up the mantle.
Heavyweight Clarke is no stranger to pressure or challenges – having succeeded on the biggest stage in amateur boxing when he won a bronze medal for Team GB at the 2020 Olympics – but the clash with Wach will test him as never before.
Also an Olympian – representing Poland in the 2004 Games – Wach’s professional career has seen him consistently face the best fighters the heavyweight division has to offer, including his 2012 challenge against Klitschko for the unified world heavyweight championship. The challenge was unsuccessful but Wach showed his quality and has done many times since, including in bouts with top British talents Dillian Whyte and Hughie Fury on UK soil. A hostile crowd in London will not faze the visitor known as The Viking.
31 from Burton-on-Trent, Clarke has scored a string of knockout wins since turning professional last year, showcasing a blend of boxing finesse and ferocious power. Now he is eager for tougher tests to sharpen his arsenal as he continues his march towards the championship bouts which await him.
Frazer Clarke: “I’m glad that we’re finally able to announce this fight and let people see the kind of challenges I’m looking for. Mariusz Wach is a very tough opponent, his record speaks for itself – look at the names he’s been in there with and the kind of fights he’s had with them. So I hope it’s clear to everyone now that Frazer Clarke isn’t afraid of anyone.
“I’m in this game to be world champion and the pathway has always been carefully planned. A lot has been said about me lately but people don’t know what goes on behind the scenes. Myself and my promoter Ben Shalom are on the same page and we’re executing the plan step by step. I expect to have the British heavyweight championship belt round my waist by the end of the year – but first I have to handle Mariusz Wach.”
Mariusz Wach: “I know it's going to be a tough task but I'm here to win. I know I'm going to get hit with a few solid shots. But I'm not going to back down. I'm here to put on a hell of a show. I want this fight to be remembered.”
Ben Shalom,BOXXER Founder and CEO: “This is a great fight for Frazer Clarke. Mariusz Wach is a very tough customer who has shared the ring with some of the biggest names in the sport with some memorable performances. Frazer Clarke is taking a big step up on June 16th but these are the challenges needs as he makes his way to the top.”
Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “It would be very easy for any fight fan to criticise the quality for money on this reduced card, but it's Friday night boxing, which is always a treat in my books. Yes, the headliner, Adam Azim, was the main attraction, but Frazer Clarke in a big test will entertain and intrigue; then there's 16-0 Aaron McKenna in a tough title fight with unbeaten Uisma Lima, who has eight knockouts from 10 wins. In addition to that, you've got Isaac Chamberlain, Caroline Dubois, Viddal Riley and also Hassan Azim on the card, who are all exciting prospects, well worth a watch.
“Frazer will get questioned in his fight with experienced operator, Wach, so it'll be interesting to see how he answers those. Now 41, The Viking has only won two from his last six, but has taken Dillian Whyte, Hughie Fury and Kevin Lerena the distance, so Clarke will be looking to go one better and find a statement stoppage win. With eight rounds at his disposal, I think Big Fraze could get a stoppage within that time.”
