Frazer Clarke sends shivers through heavyweight division with thunderous KO of Esteban Bracamonte in just second fight
FRAZER CLARKE starched Esteban Bracamonte to put the British heavyweight scene on red alert.
The 30-year-old Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist looked to be at the beginning of a crucial learning fight, with his second pro outing against the grizzled Argentine.
But a bludgeoning left hook sunk the South American to send a shiver through the ranks of the UK giants.
Bracamonte took giant drug cheat Jarrell Miller the 10-round distance in America last month, so was considered a stiff test.
But Clarke – who will be racing toward a British title after years as understudy to Anthony Joshua and Joe Joyce – savaged him inside just six minutes.
And the 18st Burton-On-Thames powerhouse said: “It was the left that clinched it because he was a big target to hit.
“I had to be sharp because he kept throwing that right hand that is dangerous.”
The Only Fools and Horses super-fan peppered the experienced Argie all over the Bournemouth ring.
And the former Team GB skipper showed off impressive defensive skills, especially for such a big unit, when the South American launched the odd haymaker back.
Big Fraze looked like he might secure an early night when he pinned Braca onto the ropes and cracked a few into his flabby flank but the chunky challenger enjoyed the shellacking.
Tattooed Bracamonte kept marching his 19st frame at Clarke and shooting snot out of his gnarly nose during every rare break in the action.
The underfire visitor complained of an illegal punch to the back of his head early in the second and was afforded a breather to recover.
But Clarke responded by smashing him almost clean out of the ring with a sickening shot that should send shivers down the rest of the British heavyweight scene.
