Deontay Wilder’s coach, Malik Scott, has a keen eye on the sport and has spotted a heavyweight from the UK that he would like to train.
After a 42 fight career as a heavyweight pro, Scott turned his hand to training and can currently be found in the corner of ‘The Bronze Bomber’ as he stakes his claim to become a two-time world champion.
Asked on The Good Fight podcast who else in the world he’d like to work with, he picked an up and coming contender from Great Britain.
“There’s so many good fighters, man. I’d like to get, from the UK, Clarke. Frazer Clarke. I think Frazer Clarke is a big talent. When I see him fight, a lot of things he [does] reminds me of things that I teach.”
Clarke’s training is currently helmed by Angel Fernandez, a man who also works with Anthony Joshua and Richard Riakporhe. Following a bronze medal at the 2020 Olympics, the fighter’s now 4-0 as a professional with three wins coming by knockout.
With an extensive amateur pedigree, fans are looking at 2023 as a big year for ‘Big Fraze’ – with many, including himself, calling for tougher tests in the ring.
Despite being green as a pro, the man from Burton upon Trent isn’t shy in his callouts, making it clear that he’d like to face fellow Olympian Joe Joyce in the future.
As he makes his way up towards the top of the division, there are plenty of names for Clarke that offer an intriguing clash, and with the backing of Sky Sports, we’re likely to see him progress over the next 12 months where he can begin to headline cards and knock on the door of the division’s big dogs.
