Hughie Fury Continues To Chase Mike Tyson's Record

London - Hughie Lewis Fury faces Croatian fighter Hrvoje Kisicek today, Sunday 13 October, at Hermitage Leisure Centre, Whitwick, Leicestershire, on Mitchell Sports Promotions' 'Neutral Ground' show, looking to give another classy display.

The 19-year-old heavyweight is aiming to add his 11th straight win to his perfect professional record, after outclassing and shaking Dorian Darch several times on the way to a unanimous points victory in his last outing, just two weeks ago.

But Croatian heavyweight boxer, kickboxer and MMA fighter, Kisicek, will be looking to take his multi-combat experience into the ring and tarnish the young prospect's record.

However, targetting the famous record of Mike Tyson, to become the youngest ever world heavyweight champion, Hughie is not taking anyone lightly.

Training and sparring the likes of his older cousin Tyson Fury, former IBF world cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham and “Fast” Eddie Chambers, Hughie is looking to give his best performance to date.

Doors for the Mitchell Promotions' ‘Neutral Ground’ open at 2pm, with boxing scheduled to start at 3pm.
