Hughie Fury Warns Heavyweights: Believe Me, I'll Be Taking Over!

Heavyweight contender Hughie Fury (23-3, 13 KOs), the cousin of WBC champion Tyson Fury, has promised to bounce back strong on Saturday night in Manchester.

Hughie will take on Pavel Sour on the undercard of the Scott Quigg vs Jono Carroll showdown. They were scheduled to fight in the fall of 2019, but Fury withdrew with illness.

Fury was last in action back in August, when he lost a twelve round decision to former world champion Alexander Povetkin.

Hughie, 25-years-old, is 3-3 in his last six fights.

He explained that his hand had been injured for quite some time, and he plans to show off his full arsenal on Saturday night.

"I've been fighting with one hand," Hughie Fury told Sky Sports. "On Saturday you will see a completely different me. My style is different to any other heavyweights'.

"I'm not afraid to fight anyone. I've jumped in the ring with everyone. The only person to beat me is myself. There have been no excuses. I let my fists do the talking. Believe me, I will be taking over."

Peter Fury, the father and head trainer of Hughie, believes his son can still become a world champion. Peter led Tyson Fury to the unified crown in 2015, when he shocked Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.

"Let's just look at the facts here - we're not looking at somebody who has got wobbled or badly beaten, or anything," Peter Fury said.

"He ticks all the boxes, he can box, he can hold a shot, he can do the 12 rounds. They are only tweaks that's needed, so he will get there. Whether you put it down to experience, his age, there's a combination of things why it doesn't happen and click in."

Hughie might be better named the artful dodger. His main focus is not getting hit as his pillow hands couldn't knock over a granny on sedatives. If you want to watch a yawnful borefest settle in with some no-doze and…
