‘Hughie Fury can do it all’

Expect to see a dramatic improvement in Hughie Fury this weekend and beyond, writes his father and trainer Peter Fury

In the seven months that have passed since Hughie lost to Kubrat Pulev in Bulgaria, we’ve been working diligently, correcting quite a few flaws and I’m really looking forward to seeing the new Hughie Fury on Saturday (May 25). We both know this is where he needs to turn the corner.

Take away his age and the physical side of things, what he now needs to understand is that he’s got to switch the lightbulb on and now use that experience he has gained. What I mean by that is he needs to learn from all the experiences he has had so far as a pro, the good and the bad, and use it to his advantage.

Because that’s what experience is all about. You can have a hundred fights and not learn a thing. It’s all about learning and doing the things you perhaps didn’t do before.
