Frazer Clarke vs Mariusz Wach full card results, Clarke extends unbeaten record

British heavyweight star Frazer Clarke predictably and unilaterally knocked out Polish veteran Mariusz Wach at London’s York Hall Arena on Friday, earning a 10-round decision. Referee Mark Bates’ official score was 100-90.

That was routine for a fighter in the early stages of his paid career.

“I think I got off to a good start but I’ve definitely slowed down – it’s extremely hot in here,” Clarke said in his post-fight interview with Sky Sports in the UK. “I did a lot right and a lot wrong. I would.” would like to say thank you [my team] for choosing to take on this fight.”

Clarke (7-0, 5 KOs) was referring to the fact his team sidestepped a British title fight against champion Fabio Wardley to send him into his first 10-round contest instead.

Clarke, 31, got out of the blocks quickly in Round 1, doubling and tripling left jabs in the older man’s face. Wach seemed reluctant to let go of his hands for fear of a counterattack and merely used the opening session to reconnoitre.

As the rounds progressed, Clarke increased his offense. He exaggeratedly tagged the visitor with rights and hacked at the body with both hands. There were moments of inattention, however, and Wach returned fire with some powerful shots of his own.

However, he wasn’t consistent and Clarke pulled away with cleaner and more effective shots. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medalist is the younger man, the fresher man and the more ambitious man – and it showed.

One of the best shots of the fight was a massive right hand counter that caught Wach square on the chin in the fifth round. Clarke is on a professional learning curve and in that moment has learned that putting a stop to a 291-pound opponent is difficult.

Towards the end of the fight, Wach, who was fairly slow to begin with, seemed like he was punching through syrup. Comfortably in front, Clarke switched to sparring mode and struck out sharply between messy clinches.

When Wach actually got ambitious, which he later did, Clarke responded with better things. That was the story of the struggle.

Wach falls to 37-10 (20 KOs).
