    Hughie stops him late. Younger, fresher and a more skilled fighter who is finally sitting down on his shots a bit more. He would beat any version of Hunter, especially this over the hill one.

    Hunter looked like **** last time out, and I suspect it is because he had the near PEDs bust and can't cycle. Probably almost done, whereas Hughie is entering his prime years.

    I do not think one should think about what Hunter looked like in his latest fight where he did not look very good. Think of Usyk´s first heavyweight fight. It was not very impressive either. If Hunter is inspired then he can become an incredibly difficult opponent for Hughie Fury. It's going to be hard for Hughie to look good and I do not understand why Boxxer / Sky Sports wants this fight ?

    A good fight evenly matched.

    They should put this as a preliminary for a wedding or Bar Mitzvah to get a decent turn out.

    Ben Shalom has just announced this one. A good fight, between two fighters who need to kick on to get into title contention.

    Am I the only one who thinks this will be a horrible fight?

    Good clash of styles here. Fury is coming off a good win in stoping hammer. Hunter is a slippery banana skin for fury, if he comes through this and wins then he should be looking at a title eliminator surely next

    Won’t be much of spectacle but it’s a good fight for both at this stage in their careers.

    No, you are not alone.

    Hughie Fury can win a narrow points victory, but it will not be an attractive fight to watch.

    I’d rather see Hughie vs. Price.

    The Resistible Force vs. the Moveable Object.

    The man who can’t bust a grape vs. the man with less punch resistance than a pudding.

    Edge of your seat excitement for sure.
