Hughie Fury Expects To Blast Out Joseph Parker in "Four Rounds"

Hughie Fury believes that he's in the best shape of his entire career after recovering from the back injury that caused the date of the original fight against WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker to get pushed back. They were initially set to collide on May 6th in Auckland. Photo by Hennessey Sports.

The first time around it was the champion who held the home advantage, but now that scenario has changed as the two will collide on September 23rd at the Manchester Arena.

The 22-year-old hotshot, cousin of the former undisputed heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has a perfect record of 20 wins and 10 knockouts with 8 coming inside the first three rounds.

Aukland’s Parker created history when he became New Zealand’s first ever world heavyweight champion by defeating Andy Ruiz Jr. on points to win the Vacant WBO title in a thrilling night in December last year and become a national hero. The belt was vacated by Tyson Fury last year, after the boxer was unable to fight due to his mental health struggles.

Parker currently holds an undefeated 23-fight record with 18 knockouts, 12 of those were inside three rounds.

The 25-year-old defended his title for the first time last month against the tough and awkward Romanian Razvan Conjanu – who replaced the injured Fury – by unanimous decision.

Fury is very confident of victory - predicting that he will end Parker's reign in four rounds.

"Four rounds I would say. Four rounds, knock out," Fury said to 1 News. "I've always said if it's home or away the outcome is always going to be the same. But it's nice to have a home show, every bit helps."

"I think Joseph Parker is a very good fighter and you can't take anything away from him, he's a world champion. It's going to be an exciting fight."

Tickets for Parker v Fury are priced at £40, £60, £100, £150, £200, £300 and VIP £600 are available from

Parker beats him

It's a terrible, terrible "world heavyweight championship" fight. Maybe Hughie is one of those Chisora-type boxers who can only motivate himself for the big ones and he'll show something much better than he has so far. I doubt it though.

Hughie doesn't even have enough power to pop a single zit, as can be seen every time he takes off his shirt. I think he's saying things like this because his team and him know his total lack of power…

Never gonna happen. Kassi was giving Furry fits when the gypsy kid began to slow and tire before the the cut, Fury had built up a comfortable lead but that was beginning to erode. The pressure Parker brings Furry won't…
