Trainer Peter Fury is relishing the prospect of unleashing his son Hughie on Kubrat Pulev when the pair collide in an IBF world heavyweight title final eliminator on October 27.
Hughie is bidding to earn a shot at IBF world champion Anthony Joshua by silencing Pulev’s fans in Sofia, Bulgaria and Peter Fury has reflected on a lengthy and fully-committed training camp.
Peter Fury said: “Pulev is technically very sound and you could argue that he’s the best technical boxer Hughie will have faced to this point but Hughie’s in fabulous shape.
“Hughie’s had a 13-week training camp and he’s ready for anything that Pulev brings. When you’ve had a 13-week camp, you’ve come to the end of the road. This is what camps are like.
“He had a slight graze across his eye about four weeks ago but that’s healed perfectly and is fine. He’s looking great.
“He did some sparring today and that’ll probably be the last spar now. It’s time for him to start resting up. He’s got a good 10 days to recover before fight night and get all that energy back.
“Now, it’s time for him to gain from what he’s achieved over the last three months.”
