An intriguing all-British heavyweight battle is coming to life.
Former world title challenger Hughie Fury admitted that he is willing to face Dave Allen once the lockdown in the UK is over and boxing resumes.
The cousin of Tyson Fury has no problems fighting his fellow countryman behind closed doors, as this is a super makeable fight because they are both part of ‘Matchroom Boxing’ stable.
“Dave Allen keeps mentioning my name saying he wants to fight me and all this,” said Fury. “I’m a fighting man so let’s get it on as soon as possible. It doesn’t bother me. It’s only going to be fights against English opponents at the moment. It will be a good fight between the pair of us, there’s no point in waiting. I have no hard feelings against him but he’s mentioning my name so let’s get it on!”
“I’m 25 and still filling out. One thing I love to do is fight and no one will ever take that away from me, I love these challenges. We have changed a lot although you never got to see too much in the Pavel Sour fight. When I get back in these bigger fights that is when you will see the difference and the changes we’ve made.”
Fury is coming off of a TKO win over Pavel Sour just a week prior to the explosion of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe.
Allen, 28, has also won his previous fight, defeating journeyman Dorian Darch via KO in February.
