WBO World Heavyweight mandatory challenger Hughie Fury is confident of collecting gold in 2017 and doesn’t plan on stopping with just one belt.
The 22 year old rising star has raced to 20-0 and now finds himself in line to fight newly crowned WBO boss Joseph Parker, who edged past Andy Ruiz to win his maiden World Title live on BoxNation from Auckland back in December.
Fury announced on his Facebook page Thursday evening that he is determined to win one of the belts previously held by his cousin Tyson and intends to unify the division.
Promoter Frank Warren revealed in his column last week talks were on-going for the mandatory challenge against the unbeaten Kiwi Samoan Parker: “We are working it out at the moment trying to get the deal done.”
Fans will be intrigued to see developments of how negotiations progress with Team Parker surely wanting the fight on home turf or in America, where Parker has recently signed a co-promotional agreement with Bob Arum’s Top Rank stable, or if Parker can be tempted over to the U.K with British boxing booming.
