Fabio fight live on Sky

Local heavyweight boxer Fabio Wardley will face Richard Lartey on Saturday night live on Sky Sports.

If Fabio can defeat Lartey, it would set up a 2021 British title fight with Dave Allen, who is also on the same billing on Saturday night.

Fabio lifted the English heavyweight title belt with an impressive third round stoppage over Simon Vallily in August as part of Eddie Hearn's Fight Camp.

Wardley, who was in Blues' Academy for a short period of time as a youngster, has a record of 9-0 having stopped all but one of his opponents. 

The 25-year-old has previously told iFollow Ipswich about his desire to fight at Portman Road one day.

"That would be massive," Fabio said. "That's definitely the goal and on the list of plans we want to do. I need a bit more time and obviously the right fight to fill this place out. I definitely think that's something we could do down the line."
