Hughie in news

Weekend Herald - - Your Sporting Weekend -

Claim­ing he was robbed in his last fight — beaten by Joseph Parker in Septem­ber — Brit Hughie Fury, 23, steps back into the ring at Bolton's Macron Sta­dium early to­mor­row morn­ing to fight Sam Sex­ton for the Bri­tish heavy­weight crown. De­spite los­ing by unan­i­mous de­ci­sion to Parker, Fury still talks the talk. “I thought that I won the fight be­cause Parker didn’t hit me with any shots at all, I thought I was ahead in the fight and every­body had me up on their cards,” said Fury. “When you are in a ring you know if you have won a fight or not and you could see the re­sult by Parker’s face, he thought that he had lost. I am the un­crowned world cham­pion and you will see why that is.” Sex­ton, who took the fight others did not want, said: “I won’t be at all fazed go­ing into Hughie’s home­land as I’ve proved in the past with cham­pi­onship vic­to­ries in Belfast, twice, and in Ed­in­burgh.” Bri­tish heavy­weight ti­tle, to­mor­row 6am.
