London - Young heavyweight star Hughie Fury is looking for his seventh straight professional win this weekend at the Fairways Hotel, Dundalk, Ireland.

The 6'7" teenager takes on Ivica Percovik, looking to continue his momentum towards Mike Tyson's infamous record of becoming the youngest ever world heavyweight champion.

After a first round demolition of durable Czech Republic fighter Ladislav Kovarik, inside round one, at Glow, Bluewater, and a composed and assured six-round points win over Tomas Mrazek in Norwich, Hughie is building his experience and is ready for this latest test.

The 18-year-old, who made his professional debut in just March of this year, has already fought in Canada, New York, Belfast, Romania and England and on Friday night he will be looking for his fifth knockout.

He fights on the Cuchulainn Promotions show where he meets a man fighting out of Sibenik, Croatia, who boasts 19 wins with 14 knockouts.

But Hughie, the first ever British/Irish fighter to win a gold medal at the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships at super heavyweight will feel confident, having delivered dominant wins in all six of his professional fights to date.

The points win over Mrazek in Norwich and first round demolition of Kovarik at Glow, Bluewater, followed his impressive stoppage win over Janos Finfera in Romania, his points win over the experienced Moses Matovu at Belfast City Hall and knock-out wins over the previously unbeaten Alex Rozman at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, New York and David Whittom on his professional debut in Canada.

Now, he is focussed on Percovik looking to deliver another convincing win.

The night also features Patrick Murphy battling it out with Peter McDonagh for the Celtic Warrior title.

Anthony Fitzgerald faces Eamonn O'Kane for the vacant Irish middleweight title and also in action are Jamie Kennedy and Steve Collins Jnr.

Doors open at 7.30pm with the first fight scheduled for 8.00pm.
