Lennox Clarke Ready for an Exciting Title Fight with Mark Heffron!


On July 16, fans will pack the Copper Box Arena to see a domestic level dust-up. BBBofC British/Commonwealth super middleweight titlist Lennox Clarke (20-1-1 8KO) will defend his belts against “Kid Dynamite” Mark Heffron (27-2-1, 21KO).

This is the normal path most fighters take before being taken to the next step of world-level status. Clarke is hoping a victory will put his career in the forward motion of a new chapter. Adding even more intensity to the fight will be the vacant IBF Inter-Continental title on the line, which almost guarantees the winner a slot in the organization’s rankings.

Clarke is one of those fighters that mostly learned on the job by fighting a slew of below-average fighters during the bring-along process. He suffered the first defeat in a step-up bout against top ten undefeated Lerrone Richards in 2019. After a two-year hiatus, he bounced back winning both domestic titles against undefeated Willy Hutchinson in April 2021.

FULLY RECOVERED AND READY TO GO

After that big win, injuries prevented Clarke from taking advantage of the situation and sidelined him for over a year. Now, fully healed, the domestic level titlist is hungry and ready to get back into the ring. During an interview with Boxing Social, he said he believes in his ability to walk away victorious and move forward.

“Mark’s a good fighter, strong fighter, and he’s an experienced fighter. I’ve got respect for him. I do respect him as a fighter. But, I’ve got full belief and full confidence in myself […] it’s going to be a hard fight, but I believe so far, I’m going to win and convey with those titles and push on.”

Clarke gave a good reason why fans should watch the fight and will walk away satisfied.

“Nothing but fireworks. Mark brings it, and I bring it, and it is going to be a fan-friendly fight.”
