  • Wardley speaks out

    He says: “It’s been a bit of a journey and so far so good. I have been in some good fights and put on some good shows.

    “I am from the Dillian Whyte school of hard knocks, we go to war in sparring and we go to war in the ring.

    “I was hurt in the second, Nathan is good but I am used to taking big shots so it is no problem to me, I just bite down on my gumshield and get the job done.

    “I want to be headlining shows, 2023 is the year of Fabio Wardley.”
