Frazer Clarke vs Dave Allen highlights Smith vs Eubank 2 undercard

Florian Marku, Mark Heffron, and Ben Whittaker also see action

Frazer Clarke, Florian Marku, and Ben Whittaker see action in September

Sky Sports and BOXXER have unveiled the supporting cast for Liam Smith vs Chris Eubank Jr 2 on September 2nd, led by the latest from Tokyo silver medalist Frazer Clarke.

“Big Fraze” lost quite a bit of luster when his team unceremoniously yanked him from a British title fight against Fabio Wardley in May, leaving him to cruise past Mariusz Wach a month later instead. His next opponent isn’t the threat that Wardley is, but he’s at least a familiar face in Dave Allen (21-5-2, 18 KO). “White Rhino” is 4-0 over bottom-of-the-barrel opponents since rocketing to prominence with a knockout of Lucas Browne and immediately falling out of it by losing to David Price.

In other action, undefeated welterweight Florian Marku (12-0-1, 7 KO) ends a yearlong layoff against Ireland’s Dylan Moran (18-1, 8 KO), whose record is much better on paper than in reality. Plus, Mark Heffron (29-2-1, 23 KO) fights Jack Cullen (21-4-1, 9 KO) in a decent matchup undercut by Cullen’s recent maulings at the hands of Kevn Lele Sadjo and Diego Pacheco, and Ben Whittaker (4-0, 3 KO) makes a two-month turnaround after a very “Sound and fury” sort of win over Vladimir Belujsky earlier in July.
