Dillian Whyte watches on as protege Fabio Wardley scores career-best knockout win at Eddie Hearn's Fight Camp back garden

Fabio Wardley moved to 9-0 (8 KOs) with the best win of his career on Saturday night.

The heavyweight, managed by Dillian Whyte, claimed the English title by knocking out Simon Vallily who was once a highly-rated amateur.

In stark contrast, Wardley’s experience prior to professional boxing was merely white-collar fighting.

Regardless. he is coming along nicely in the paid ranks.

After an even first couple of rounds, Wardley caught Vallily with a solid counter left hook which had him stumbling back across the ring.

He then pursued the finish, pummelling his helpless opponent against the ropes until he was saved by the referee.

Hearn previously told talkSPORT about the Fight Camp series: “We talked about doing boxing in studios and there’s a lot of people doing it.

“I just feel like when you are talking about a gladiatorial sport, like boxing, you need to create that moment, that energy, not just for the viewer at home but the fighter as well.

“We’ve got big plans. It looks fantastic…

“You have to be compelling and innovative and come up with ideas like Matchroom Fight Camp, where broadcasters are going to say, ‘Wow, we love that.’”
