Tyson Fury’s cousin – Hughie Fury will have his toughest challenge tonight since his lost to Kubrat Pulev last year, but it seems the Brit had some time on his hands and gave his opinion on the reportedly scheduled rematch between “The Gypsy King” and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
We remind you that Tyson (28-0-1) and Deontay (41-0-1) met last December in Los Angeles, but the fight ended in a controversial draw, even though the Brit was clearly the one who won the bout.
Now his younger kin believes that the only way Fury could win the rematch is by a way of knock out.

“He’s gotta knock him out,” Hughie Fury told BoxingScene.com. “Definitely gotta knock him out to get the win.”
“I do reckon that Tyson will beat him easy again because it was only just with that last punch in the 12th round that Wilder got a draw,” said Hughie Fury. “But if Tyson keeps away, or, you never know, it could be a different story this time and he could finish Wilder early.”
The rematch is planned for February 2020, but in order for this fight to really happen, the two high profile fighters must defeat their next adversaries – Wilder is set to defend the WBC belt against Luis Ortiz, while Fury will face Otto Wallin.
