Professional boxing’s big shark Eddie Hearn managed to add Hughie Fury to his team.
The British boxer, who lost to Kubrat Pulev last October in Sofia, signed a multiyear contract with “Matchroom Boxing” hoping to get big fights. 24-year-old Fury has a record of 23-2, 13 KO to his name and one title shot – against Joseph Parker in 2017, which turned out into one of his only two loses.
“I’m over the moon to be signing promotionally with Eddie (Hearn) and joining a stable as strong as Matchroom. I feel with Matchroom’s backing I can kick on now and really fulfil my potential. Watch this space because it’ll be exciting times over the next couple of years,” said Fury.
“I’m delighted to welcome Hughie Fury to the Matchroom Boxing team. At such a young age Hughie has been fearless taking on the world’s contenders, facing Joseph Parker for the world title at just 23 and recently traveling to Bulgaria to take on Kubrat Pulev on his backyard. This experience will be priceless and I’m excited to see him back in a big fight soon at a time when the division is hotter than ever,” Hearn added.
