Clarke consistently outlanded a former unified World Championship challenger and 47-fight veteran in Wach in only Clarke’s 7th professional fight, and his first 10-rounder.
Clarke controlled the opening rounds of the fight with his jab, exchanging smartly and keeping his offence varied so shots could find their way through. By jabbing to the head so effectively the former Olympian was able to land big hooks to the body.
Wach did find some success in the middle rounds, occasionally exploiting a gap in Clarke’s armour, but Clarke continued to win every round, and kept up the pace, despite the hot, humid venue, as Wach began to flag later in the fight.
