Hughie Fury insists there is no race between him and big cousin Tyson to fight Anthony Joshua.

Hughie challenges WBO heavyweight king Joseph Parker at Manchester Arena on September 23 and victory would put him on the brink of a unification clash against IBF and WBA champ, Joshua.

Former world champ Tyson is on the comeback trail and hasn't ruled out his return to action on the big September bill if his drugs wrangle with UKAD can be resolved.

“There’s no race to Joshua, because we are both going to bash up everyone, full stop,” insisted 22-year-old Hughie.

“We are just very laid back because we know we are going to rule the heavyweight division together. Whoever comes to each other first we will take.

“It doesn’t matter to me. After I win this fight I’m coming for every single heavyweight who has got a belt.

“It doesn’t bother me who we both fight next. One fight at a time and we will both rule the division for years.”

Tyson, 28, hasn’t boxed since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 and although he now weights 25 stone, is back in the gym and helping Hughie prepare for his big challenge.

He said: “Hughie is his own man and if his game plan is good enough he will win.

“Boxing isn’t rocket science. It is ABC and simple.

“Parker is proper, a very good fighter and not one of these fakes like the rest of the heavyweights.”

Parker is convinced he will ruin Team Fury’s plan of heavyweight domination by making a successful second defence of the title he won against Andy Ruiz Jr seven months ago.

The New Zealander, 24, who has won all 23 fights added: “All I want to do is put on a great fight and I back myself against heavyweight.

“There are a lot of exciting fights happening in Britain and it has been important to fight here and get known.”
