David Adeleye has been calling out Fabio Wardley ever since he won the British heavyweight title last year, and now they are set to clash in Saudi Arabia as the undercard fighters. Wardley and Adeleye were supposed to announce their spot on the undercard of the Fury vs. Wilder.
At yesterday’s press conference for the Fury vs. Francis super-fight, both heavyweight fighters, David Adeleye and Fabio Wardley, heated things up by engaging in a physical altercation that left the latter bleeding on the red carpet.
Fabio Wardley cut and dropped in massive Brawl with David Adeleye
Adeleye was in the middle of an interview at the press conference of Fury vs Ngannou and he began to get into a verbal confrontation with a bystander. Wardley approached and Adeleye immediately turned around and shoved him, sparking a brawl between the pair. Both were quickly separated by security, but at one point Wardley was punched.
Wardley was left with a cut and was dropped during his alteration with David but there’s a twist, Fabio was not cut and dropped by David but received a huge left hand from an unidentified man in the crowd and consequently dropped on the floor.
