Fabio Wardley Climbs with Ipswich Town F.C.

With Ipswich Town F.C. among Wardley's sponsors, he cherishes their mutual growth. "We're on this upward trajectory, moving alongside each other."


Ipswich, UK (December 11, 2023) - British heavyweight champion Fabio Wardley is nurturing a dual ambition: securing a world heavyweight title while relishing his beloved Ipswich Town's ascent to the Premier League—a dream that intertwines both his personal and professional aspirations.

Ipswich, UK's Fabio Wardley is making waves around the world.

Fresh off his latest victory against David Adeleye, enhancing his undefeated streak to 17 wins, Wardley remains grounded, having learned a vital lesson from his foray into top heavyweight boxing, a journey driven by a passion for incremental improvement rather than immediate glory.

Wardley's Early Days

Recalling his early gym days, Wardley reminisced, "I asked my coach if I could spar after a session. I picked the biggest guy and jumped in. I got punched all over the ring, took a knee a couple of times, but strangely, I loved it. That incremental progression in boxing really hooked me."

Having taken over six years to climb to the summit of the British heavyweight scene, Wardley acknowledges his continuous learning curve, entering the sport without an amateur background. His professional debut coincided with fellow British heavyweight Daniel Dubois', signifying their parallel journeys.

While Dubois has already made it to a world title shot, Wardley remains patient, recognizing the vast intricacies of heavyweight boxing. "I was a late bloomer, so I've got a lot more to catch up on," he acknowledged. "There's more to it than meets the eye. It's not just about throwing punches; it's understanding the nuances, learning about myself as a fighter."

Wardley and Ipswich Town

In an interesting parallel, Wardley's rise aligns with Ipswich Town's climb under Kieran McKenna's coaching. The club's success—evident from their prolific goal-scoring to their impressive Championship run—mirrors Wardley's ascent in the heavyweight division.

With Ipswich Town among Wardley's sponsors, he cherishes their mutual growth. "We're on this upward trajectory, moving alongside each other," Wardley noted. "It's great to see them doing so well. It's good to have such people around."

Wardley Fighting in Ipswich

Expressing his aspirations, Wardley revealed his desire for an outdoor fight at Ipswich's Portman Road ground. "The club and I are eager for it. It's about timing, aligning the right fight without disrupting the football season," he explained. "It's on my bucket list and will happen before my career ends."

With a potential British title defense against Olympic bronze medallist Frazer Clarke looming, Wardley's trajectory seems to be aimed skyward. Amidst the glitz and glamour of heavyweight boxing, Wardley's essence remains anchored in his unwavering dedication to his craft, ensuring that amidst the stardom, the primary goal remains crystal clear: delivering his best in the ring.
