FIVE GUYS lover Fabio Wardley is ready to take Kubrat Pulev’s burger if Derek Chisora snubs his usual post-fight ritual.
Chisora regularly shares a burger with his opposition but his bad blood with Pulev threatens to see the tradition scrapped.

So Wardley, prone to enjoying a quarter pounder himself, is more than happy to bag himself an extra one.
He told SunSport: “Oh yeah, definitely. I’d have my own before then anyway. So I’ll double down.”
Wardley, 27, in July 2019 interrupted his corner team mid-fight to ask if they were going to his favourite burger joint.
And ever since, the unbeaten British heavyweight contender has been grilled on his passion for patties.

Wardley joked: “The thing is, I do love a Five Guys, but it’s so attached to me now I can’t escape it, it’s funny.
“Derek’s always running around with a burger as well. He gave me one at my last fight that I had in February.
“I was in the middle of the ring doing my open workout and he just came into the event with a bag full of burgers, handed me one in the ring.
“I had to say, ‘Mate, I’m not going to eat this now’.”

Wardley has certainly earned the odd fast food treat having emerged as one of the brightest prospects in the country.
He is currently 13-0, with all but ONE fight ending by knockout.
Wardley is eyeing the British title which will be contested against Tyson Fury’s cousin Nathan Gorman, 26, who has only just had his first fight back in 15 months.
Gorman is likely in need of one or two more confidence building wins, meaning Wardley’s title hopes remain shelved.
But while sharing a red-hot heavyweight division both domestically and worldwide, the avid Ipswich fan has plenty of other options.
Wardley said: “The British title is probably top of the list in terms of what we want, seems like the most viable, seems like the best option out there to happen.
“But if it doesn’t, there’s the Commonwealth, the European, and all kinds of other international belts.
“There’s a lot of possibilities, but the British title is No1.”
