Fabio Wardley still British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion despite draw with Frazer Clarke

Fabio Wardley kept hold of his British and Commonwealth heavyweight belts after his battling encounter with Frazer Clarke was ruled a split draw.

After a gruelling 12-round bout at the O2 Arena, one judge scored the contest 114-113 in favour of Wardley, another made it 115-112 to Clarke and the third called it a 113-113 draw.

Olympic bronze medallist Clarke was knocked down at the end of the fifth round and had a point deducted for a low blow in the seventh, while Wardley appeared to suffer a broken nose which left blood streaming down his face for the majority of the fight.

The result means both men remain undefeated and a rematch will be eagerly anticipated after a gripping contest.
