FRAZER CLARKE is perfectly placed to follow the footsteps of Anthony Joshua. Frazer, now GB’s leading super-heavyweight is building up to the Olympic Games himself in two years’ time and is currently in Australia ready to compete in the Commonwealth Games.
“It’s not even long now till the Olympics, it’ll fly by. I’ve been in the cycle before. Those last two years go really quick,” Clarke told Boxing News. “I want to win everything I go into especially the Commonwealth Games because it’s good publicity for me. Puts me all over the TV.”
Clarke couldn’t have better preparation. He’s been the key sparring partner for unified IBF and WBA heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua. “I’ve had some real good sparring since Christmas. That’s when I started sparring again. I’ve had no easy sparring at all. I went to America and sparred in America when I was unfit, really tough. Those kind of spars they proper get you in good stead. I’ve had the full Joshua camp, that’s been great. Solomon [Dacres, new on GB] that’s a real good spar for me as well. It’s not been easy at all,” he said. “It’s perfect. You don’t box too many Anthony Joshuas on the way to a Commonwealth medal.”
