Peter Fury: No Heavyweight Like Hughie Fury in Boxing

London - Hughie Lewis Fury is "not hanging around" and is "upping his game" in 2014.

The 19-year-old heavyweight prospect has had a busy first nine months as a professional and is aiming at “all the top domestic fighters” next year, says his father and trainer Peter Fury.

“His first year as a professional is up at the end of March and already he’s had 12 fights, won all 12 with seven knockouts and next year we’ll be looking at all the top domestic fighters," Peter said.

“Hughie’s not hanging around, he’s upping his game next year and he's upping his game with the class of opponents as well.”

Hughie, who turned 19 in September, is the first British fighter to win a Gold Medal at the AIBA World Youth Boxing Championships at super heavyweight.

Since his professional debut in March, Hughie is already being tipped to beat Mike Tyson’s famous record of becoming the youngest fighter to win a world heavyweight title and Peter believes he can achieve whatever he puts his mind to in the sport.

“This is the kid to follow in world boxing because there is no other heavyweight like him on the planet,” Peter said.

”I’m not saying that because he’s my son, I’m saying that because of the sheer ability and boxing brain that he’s got.

"He’s maturing as he’s growing, he’s got a cast iron chin, power, the sky is the limit.

"We are leaving no stone unturned with Hughie, we know what he’s got to work on, we know he’s still improving and he’s got a lot to learn.

"He knows exactly where he is and exactly what he needs to do, so we’re very much looking forward to the new year."

[QUOTE=ophqui;14084383]That is a series of massive statements. Joshua has looked good, granted, but how you could say he's the future of anything is beyond me. Price looked great too, until he got stuck in with someone legit. So did fraudley.…

Looks better than most "prospects" out there...which isn't saying much but still good.

There's plenty of talent there and the punching power will come as well; what Peter Fury needs to do is judge the right time and right opponent for Hughie to breakthrough and move up to the next level. Back to…

[QUOTE=Trudoe;14084194]I know he's only 3 fights deep but Anthony Joshua is an absolute problem. Big 6'6" athletic with fast and accurate hands and punches with murderous intent. And he can box as well, his Olympic Gold medal is evidence of…
