Peter Fury maps out Hughie’s next two pro bouts

Phil Jay 10/05/2013

Heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury’s third professional outing has been switched to Belfast on May 14th after the 2-0 fighter was originally due to fight in Canada on May 11.

Father and trainer Peter explained to WBN that Hughie will also feature in a TV bout on May 24 in Romania as the hard-hitter continues his professional journey with a busy schedule.

“Hughie firstly fights at the City Hall in Belfast on May 14th in aid of the Oscar charity event,” Peter explained to World Boxing News.

“It’s the first ever boxing event to be staged at the venue in their history. Hughie has got a guy called Moses Matovu, a Nigerian who is based in Ireland. He’s had 33 pro fights and is a decent journeyman.

“Then on the 24th May Hughie fights in Romania, which will be covered by Eurosport. Hughie will be the only boxing event on the card that also has K1 and MMA fights.”

Fury, 18, has ploughed through his first two contests with ease since making the move to paid ranks and will no doubt be a heavy favourite to continue his good progress.”
