Heavyweight Boxer Asks Coach: "We Going For Five Guys After?" During Fight

Fabio Wardley had only one thing on his mind during his fight and it wasn't his opponent.

The heavyweight prospect hilariously asked his corner if they were going to Five Guys after his fight while receiving instructions.

He said: "We going for Five Guys after?"

Wardley, who's managed by WBC interim heavyweight world champion Dillian Whyte, recorded his eighth professional victory after stopping Mariano Ruben Diaz Strunz inside the distance.

He's now 8-0 (7 KO's) following his victory at the O2 Arena last night.

Whyte, who topped the bill, beat Oscar Rivas by unanimous decision to become the mandatory challenger to WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

And speaking in his post-fight press conference, 'The Body Snatcher' said he'd need a proper camp to prepare for his first world title shot.

"We're not just going to jump into it, we need a proper camp, we need to train properly, we need to be strategic," he said.

"I'm number one for a reason, as I keep proving. So they are going to come to us correctly, give us time to prepare.

"We need time to prepare for someone like that because Deontay Wilder is long, he's rangy, we're not going to go into that fight at four weeks' notice, we need proper time to prepare and get everything done properly and correctly."

There is a deadline of May 2020 set by the WBC by which Whyte must have fought for their title.

He's in line to fight the winner of Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury, who're set to rematch in February 2020.
