PETER FURY has revealed he and his son Hughie are ‘looking to go forward’ after their British title success.

Hughie defeated veteran Sam Sexton last Saturday (May 12) in Bolton to win the British heavyweight belt.

The newly crowned champion was competing for the first time since he was beaten by the then WBO world champion Joseph Parker in September 2017, but the 23-year-old bounced back in style with a fifth round stoppage of Sexton.
