Heavyweight contender Hughie Fury confidently believes that he will capture a world title by the end of his pro career.

Fury is scheduled to return to the ring on October 16, against veteran Christian Hammer at Utilita Arena in Newcastle on October 16.

Fury's cousin, Tyson Fury, holds the WBC title. And Anthony Joshua has the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA world titles.

Fury has won two fights in a row since losing a twelve round decision to Alexander Povetkin in August of 2019.

He hopes to topple Hammer in dominant fashion to build his case for a major fight in 2022.

"This team will put me where I need to be," said Fury. "Before I couldn't get the fights. Now I believe I can get them.

"Straight away with Hammer, I said: 'These are the fights I want'. He is a game fighter. I love a fight, I'm not afraid of any challenge, I will jump in the ring with anyone. I could have had easier fights but I want someone who will fight back and give me a challenge.

"I believe I will be the champion of the world. It is my destiny to be at the top. To become a world champion is all that's in my mind. Whoever has got a belt, I want those belts. I will get through this fight, get into a mandatory position, and whoever has got a belt at the time, I'll take.

"If you can fight, you can fight. I'm not afraid to fight anyone. It's not about records - it's about learning. Before, it was a boy against men. Now I've come into myself and it will be a different story. Get the right fights, I don't care who it is, and get those belts."
