Fabio Wardley Got Bruised In Stare Down with David Adeleye at the Fury vs Ngannou Press Conference
Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye, dressed sharply for their heavyweight fight announcement, unexpectedly provided fans with more action than anticipated. They were present on the red carpet during the press conference for Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou. Wardley and Adeleye are set to face off in an exciting domestic heavyweight clash on the undercard, which was initially supposed to be for the British title, but the status of the title is currently uncertain.
Wardley mentioned that efforts were ongoing to have the title at stake in Saudi Arabia, but regardless of the outcome, he was confident that he would secure his sixteenth knockout out of 17 fights against Adeleye on October 28.
“It’s still TBC, it’s still a conversation we’re having. Obviously we want it on the line … If that’s not the case, the fight’s going ahead regardless. It’s still a great fight.”
“He’ll be gone within the distance most definitely.”
Adeleye paid respect to his opponent but made it clear that he believes he will secure his thirteenth victory and maintain his flawless record.
“I’m confident. I know what I’m about. I don’t take nothing away from him. He’s a big guy just like me, both undefeated. He does what he needs to do every time, but at the end of the day it’s gonna be me or him – and I choose myself.”
Afterward, they had a face-to-face exchange of words, which quickly turned physical. Wardley approached Adeleye, who immediately pushed him. When Wardley attempted to retaliate, he stumbled over equipment.
Wardley was later seen with a cut near his left eye and another under his chin.
Tensions were already high, and this altercation has intensified the animosity between the two fighters. Unfortunately, the injuries have the potential to delay Wardley’s sparring sessions, making the possibility of the fight being postponed a real concern for fans.
