Anthony Joshua’s sparring partner Frazer Clarke has won gold at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, the Daily Express report.
Clarke defeated India’s Satish Kumar for a second time in the gold medal clash, with the previous meeting coming back in 2016, meaning he has now followed in the footsteps of Joe Joyce, David Price and Audley Harrison by winning at the Commonwealth Games.
Joshua, who is good friends with the gold medalist, was chosen over Clarke to go to the 2012 Olympic Games where he won gold and Joe Joyce was chosen over him to go to Rio in 2016, with Joyce picking up a silver medal.
However, Clarke is now firmly setting his sights on being chosen to go to Tokyo in 2020 after winning his biggest fight to date thanks to some big blows in the second and third rounds.
Talking after the win, a delighted Clarke said:
The Olympics is my dream. I know I’m going to have to work very hard. I’ve got to keep improving. I want to be doing a better job on those kinds of people. I want to go all the way.
