IT’S an interesting time to be a British heavyweight.
There are already three big men currently boxing at world, or at least international, level in Tyson Fury, Dereck Chisora and David Price. Then there’s an outstanding young prospect in Anthony Joshua, the 2012 London Olympic super-heavyweight gold medallist who has won all 10 pro fights inside the distance.
But there are also a few other hopeful with unblemished ring records. Hughie Fury is 14-0 and as an amateur was World Youth champion in 2012 (a serious achievement in a sport usually dominated by boxers from the former Soviet Union); Scotland’s Gary Cornish is 19-0, albeit mostly through careful matchmaking.
