“Hughie’s face looks a speed bag. Been hit alot.” – No, it’s just that slightly in-bred Irish traveler look, from banging chicks in the next caravan. His defense isn’t bad for an offensive oriented boxer, but I’d like to see more head movement as he develops.

@Ned – fair comments and not going to argue with that. In order to do so though he has to develop better balance cos he seems to throw himself off when he starts unloading. this is dangerous, when he steps up a couple of levels and fights a good strong counter puncher he is just asking to be hurt. But hey, ultimately I’ll go with your last two sentences, best of luck to both of them.

Hughie Fury is looking good for only 19 years old. He or Tyson would knock Wilder out right now!!!

Good to see the guy is so level headed it would be easy for him to be brash at that age. He’s doing the right thing by taking his time with his career with all the experience he’ll get and when he turns from lanky kid to a man by the age of 25 he will be a beast

Can’t knock this kid!

He fights regular for a novice pro and is well game!

Seems to conduct himself well!

One to keep an eye on!

WHAT!?!

Cheezb – you sound like an American Psycho. Anymore of that and I’ll have to give you the axe.

Hehehe, poor kid. Just found on boxrec that his middle name is “Lewis”.

“Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Hip to be Square”, a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself.
Hey Paul!!!”

@NBK: I think maturity counts when Hughie’s compared to Joshua. Hughie’s only 19, that’s 5 years younger than Anthony who’s 24. In 5 more years Hughie could develop into real power puncher. I hope both of them keep winning. They’re good for the heavyweight division.

“19yrs old he will not have his full man strengh for about 5 or 6 years…” – True. Most boxers don’t reach their physical prime until their mid-20s. As Fury grows into his body I expect his punching power will increase.

Hughie Fury who I seen fight a few times seemed like he could have taken some guys out at some point but wanted to get in rounds.His power dosent look great at this point but to be fair it dosent look that bad aswell.Plus at 19yrs old he will not have his full man strengh for about 5 or 6 years his matureing body and overall strength is still abit down the road.Five years from now he will look like a different person he will transform from a kid to a man.But the main thing is he has a good foundation to build on..good amature record,nice tech skills.

Reality.

He doesn’t appear to have much power. A lot of distance fights in his future.

Hughie Fury should have more hype than he’s gotten so far. He’s a good technical boxer who has size and power. What we need to know is whether he’s a game fighter and of course we’ll only know his true potential as he ramps up the comp. But so far he’s shown more technical ability than Tyson.

I dont care for tyson as he disrespects his opponents during the build up. to me it clearly goes beyond trash talk to build up a fight. he has psychological issues. thats the kind of example hughie can do without.

best of luck to the young man. be all u can be. doesnt matter what else u achieve.

@Punch – classy where – in or out of the ring? went points with Darch who Joshua took out in two rounds. Everyone he has fought has lost 50% or more of their fights. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no keyboard warrior, I have every bit of respect for almost anyone that laces up a pair of gloves and gets in to the ring, but c’mon author / folks, don’t build this guy up so early in his career to be something hes not and probably wont ever be, which is world heavyweight champion. Have those that are saying he will be ever actually watched him fight or just read articles about him?!

In answer to the first question by the author in this article – the answer is an emphatic “No”.

No power like his cousin.

Hughie’s doing fine; he’s got plenty of time to develop his skills. It’s probably better that he remains in Tyson’s shadow for another year or two. Too much hype raises expectations, and Hughie’s just a kid. Yet he seems to have the dedication to eventually move up to the top ranks. Best of luck to him.

“Could the Fury cousins be poised to succeed the Brothers Klitschko as the dominant force in world heavyweight boxing, for the remainder of this decade?” Please, Jesus, no!

hope he is managed well. good that he’s boxed in many venues.

The kid is just learning the game yet. Hughie has got a lot of press already as the cousin of Tyson and for winning gold at the World Youth Champs, but it’s too early to tell whether he’ll be any good as a pro. I wish him luck. I can’t honestly see the Fury boys having the success of the Klitschkos, but with two boxers in the family, that might help to push each other along. I’m sure it helped the Klitschkos overall.

Hughie Fury is talented,and won a gold in his last outing as a amature.He also seems dedicated with solid skills,but its very early to tell just yet.We dont know who might creep up in the div. in the next few years.Tyson lacks the dedication that Hughie seems to have,but Tyson if he keeps his nose to the grind stone can be a major force.Hughie is just a baby in hvwt. terms and without a doubt one to watch close..Tyson we sometimes forget is very young himself and if he apllies himself could be a solid fighter and a belt holder.This will be fun to watch as it unfolds over the next few years…lets see!!!

Classy kid, let’s see how he evolves. Wish him luck.

Granted, he is still a teenager and a novice, but I don’t see the talent in this kid that I did in Tyson Fury. In his first fights Tyson Fury looked like he was born ready. He had size, skills and power and all kinds of confidence. I’ve not yet seen anything to excite me in Hugh. Maybe it will come as he matures. He has, after all, all the time in the world.

Why don’t you enter Hughie in a spelling contest?.
