Unbeaten heavyweight prospect from Manchester Hughie Fury spars here at his training camp in Essen Belgium against former two time cruiserweight champion Steve ‘USS’ Cunningham, former world title challenger ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers and Derby’s unbeaten light-heavyweight prospect Arfan ‘Major’ Iqbal.
Hughie, 18, the cousin of Tyson Fury, was in the last week of training here for his 9th professional fight against Shane McPhilbin. Hughie went on to win the fight via a 1st round retirement after McPhilbin suffered a damaged shoulder.
Now unbeaten in 9 fights with 6 wins by knockout, Hughie has only been a professional for 6 months, keeping busy he hopes to continue that run and dreams of beating the record set by Mike Tyson, by becoming the youngest heavyweight champion of the world before his 21st birthday.
Here is a clip of the sparring sessions we watched while visiting the Fury camp last week.
