Olympic bronze medal winner Frazer Clarke is still very much focused on getting in the ring with British heavyweight champion Fabio Wardley.

According to Clarke, there are ongoing negotiations to make the fight with Wardley in the coming months.

"I think with conversations that I've had over the last few weeks, it's almost sorted," Clarke told Sky Sports.

"I don't take much for granted till it's done. That's the fight I want. I presume it's the fight that Fabio wants. I think it's the fight that makes sense for both our careers."

Clarke (8-0, 6 KOs) had four fights in 2023, with his last two wins coming against Dave Allen and Mariusz Wach. And Wardley (17-0, 16 KOs) is coming off a dominant seven round stoppage of David Adeleye in October - a fight which was featured on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia.  

Clarke views the opportunity to face Wardley as a showcase moment for his career.

"I think it'll be a great show for the fans. I'm relishing the chance to really, properly put my name on the map a little bit and hopefully perform better than I've performed so far and show people what I'm really about," Clarke said.

"As of yet, I've not really had that standout performance that makes people stand up and think he's a serious force to be reckoned with. But I know where I'm at. There's a lot of questions going into this fight.

"I'm not sure he's as good as he thinks he is and the people around him think he is. But he's very impressive to say the least and so far so good in what he's done," he continued. This is a fight of two men that I think want to prove each other wrong."
