IN the same week we were told Tyson Fury’s rematch with Deontay Wilder is unlikely to happen before March or April next year, another Fury has offered his services to ‘The Bronze Bomber’ should the American have difficulty sourcing opponents for the remainder of 2019.

Hughie Fury, Tyson’s cousin, boxes the unknown Canadian Chris Norrad this Saturday (May 25) but is seasoned beyond his years and, according to his father, to take on the world’s best once his next assignment is out of the way.

High on the list of future opponents is Wilder, the current WBC world heavyweight champion last seen blitzing mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale inside a round. That’s a fight Peter Fury believes is a good one for his son and, should Wilder struggle nailing down opponents for autumn and winter, one the Fury family would be more than happy to take.
