IN light of the news regarding Hughie Lewis Fury’s appearance on a BoxNation show on April 30, Hennessy Sports would like to clarify that Mick Hennessy remains Fury’s promoter and manager and will continue to guide the unbeaten heavyweight’s career alongside Hughie’s father and trainer, Peter Fury.
An opportunity for Hughie to box in the chief-support slot on April 30 at the Copper Box Arena was presented to both Mick Hennessy and Peter Fury (on the proviso Hughie isn’t cut or injured during his next fight on March 26) and they agreed it was one worth pursuing. Furthermore, they are receptive to other opportunities in the future.
“We have long considered Hughie Lewis Fury to be one of the hottest young talents in world boxing – a future superstar of the sport – and it’s encouraging to know other people in boxing are now realising what we have known and been saying since day one,” said Mick Hennessy.
“Hughie Lewis Fury is a special fighter and, like Tyson, his cousin, he’s going all the way to the top.”
