Hughie Fury Ready To Face Former K1 Fighter in Romania
London - Heavyweight star Hughie Fury goes looking for his fourth straight win in as many fights tomorrow, May 24, Timisoara, Romania.
Hughie takes on former K1 experienced fighter Janos Finfera over four three-minute rounds.
"Hughie is going to do what he naturally does and that is provide a fine display of boxing," Peter Fury said.
The 6'7" teenager will be looking to make a big impression in the only boxing fight on the Klash Series event, which includes Kempo kickboxing and MMA.
In Hughie's last contest he dominated the experienced Moses Matovu at Belfast City Hall, Belfast, having previously beaten Alex Rozman at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, New York.
Shown on network television in the US on NBC and on terrestrial television in the UK on Channel 5, the 18-year-old younger cousin of heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury, put Rozman to the canvas twice before the referee stepped in to stop the contest in only the first round.
For Hughie, the first ever Irish/British fighter to win a gold medal at the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships at super heavyweight, that followed his emphatic second-round knockout victory over David Whittom on his professional debut.
Now, he takes aim at Finfera who is a very tricky and awkward opponent, skilled at grappling through his K1 background.
The main event of the night sees rising Romanian kickboxing stars Razvan Ghita and Razvan Benche collide.
Tyson Fury will also be ringside as a special guest at the event.
The evening is scheduled to be broadcast live by GSP TV in Romania and Russia TV Boetsch. For ticket information go to www.myticket.ro.
