Boxing News: Frazer Clarke claims that moving up to the professional ranks has caused him to become more selfish in his goal of fame, after previously prioritising the interests of others as captain of Great Britain’s boxing team.
Since joining with Boxxer in December, the Olympic bronze medalist has gone 1-0, with a first-round knockout victory against Jake Darnell on the undercard of the Amir Khan-Kell Brook grudge battle.
Clarke had been scheduled to fight Gabriel Enguema of Spain on March 26 but had to withdraw due to a hand injury that required surgery.
Clarke’s drive to assert himself on the big stage has been fueled by the premature wait, which has provided an early look into the character of the pro scene.
“It’s a business, boxing is a business in the pro game,” Clarke told Sky Sports. “I had all that fun in the amateurs as a captain, as a team leader, now I’ve got to be selfish and think of myself, be cut-throat.
