Fabio Wardley puts his unbeaten record and English heavyweight title on the line on Saturday when he takes on Nick Webb at Matchroom Headquarters.
Fabio Wardley v Nick Webb Heavyweight Boxing Tips & Predictions
Whether Fabio Wardley will go on to be a superstar heavyweight like Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua is still to be seen, but he is undefeated and he packs a powerful punch.
The 26-year-old has 11 wins under his belt, and it’s important to note that 10 of those victories have come by way of knockout or technical knockout.
The only time Wardley has gone the distance was in his first professional bout when he went four rounds with Poland’s Jakub Wojcicki.
His debut was a good starting point, as he didn’t overexert himself. He took his time and got the win. Since then, he has shown amazing power and is going in search of his 11th successive knockout win.
Wardley has his critics – all British heavyweights have them – and up until his last fight, the questions were flying that he hadn’t been in the ring with a decent fighter. Well, last time out he knocked out former title challenger Eric Molina.
Molina had been in the ring with the likes of Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, so he is no mug, but Wardley took offence to a right-hand shot in the fifth and decided to end the fight by cleaning him out.
On paper, that was Wardley’s toughest test, and he passed it with flying colours.
He goes up against 33-year-old Nick Webb on Saturday. Webb has a professional record of 19 fights, 17 wins and two defeats.
His last fight took place in Gibraltar in March when he defeated Erik Pfeifer to become the IBO international heavyweight champion.
This is another step up for Webb, but unfortunately, I can only see it with him on the seat of his pants.
A lot of fighters early on in their career want to get as many rounds under their belt as possible. Wardley cannot think like that. He needs to knock Webb out and do it in convincing style if he is to get to the level of Fury or AJ.
I am backing Wardley to end this in the third round by knockout. We all bouts to go into the later rounds, but this will not be one of them.
