Prediction,

For name value, this will be Fury's best win so far, assuming he wins which he should. Fury has been in against Parker, Pulev, but he lost, I think his best win is probably Rudenko, who is a durable fighter who only loses to good fighters and doesn't get stopped, but with Peter has achieved in his career, he is on another level. I think Peter at his best would have beat Fury, he beat James Toney twice and gave Wlad the toughest fight of his career outside his losses, Hughie is not his cousin, he is only 24, seemed to do a lot better against Parker than against Pulev, he suffered a cut against Pulev, seems to have the determination, so we probably haven't seen the best of him, but his chances of being a great fighter are slim to none.

Peter is a puncher, hits very hard, that is something he still has on his side, it can take one punch in boxing, and Peter, even at 38, will still have that power, but he won't carry his power into the later rounds like he could in his prime. Peter is old, has a fair few miles, was in very damaging fights against Wlad the second time, McCline, Helenius, he has been in other tough fights. Peter has been inactive, not this year, he has fought 3 times in 2019, but he has been very inconsistent since 2011, fought 6 times since then, he was out for 3-4 years after losing to Helenius, got a first round stoppage, but was then out for another 2 years, won another small fight, fought Pulev 6 weeks later, got stopped in 3 rounds, he had an injury, but he lost the rounds. Peter was out for 2 years after the Pulev loss, came back in February, and had 3 small fights, won 2 of them in the first round, against opponents with terrible records, and lost the other, by split decision, but he still lost, and not to an opponent with a good record. I think Peter is shot.

Winning this fight should be so easy for Fury that the pressure isn't on him to get the win, but the pressure is on him to make a statement, if he just beats a shot Peter by UD, in a one paced, lacklustre fight, that will not raise his stock, but he will put his name back in the mix when it comes to heavyweight contenders, if he makes a statement, stops Peter, is dominant, and makes Peter look every bit as past it as he is.

I think Fury will easily out box Peter for 2 rounds, Peter will take a few big swings in the first 2 rounds, try to land that one big shot, but he will miss, will be gassed by round 4, and Fury will be more aggressive, increase his output. Even though Peter is probably shot, Fury might still not have the power to knock Peter out with a highlight KO, but he will beat him up, land a lot of clean punches to head and body, and he will stop Peter in 6 rounds.

Absolutely pathetic...

Hughie should retire for fan's sake. Would rather watch paint dry

Champion97's picture

Rather watch grass grow.

How'd ol Sam Peter look in this fight? Wasn't planning watching it on account of hughie

Champion97's picture

He was very poor, but what can you expect from a shot fighter who's had his career and should have retired? The pressure was on Fury to impress, make a statement, and he couldn't do that, he's horrible to watch, but more importantly, he doesn't seem to be improving. I think Fury needs a new trainer, he has the ambition of a champion, has made sacrifices, but he isn't learning.

I think Hughie Fury has potential. He is still learning and improving, and his trainer is fine. I think Fury belongs at the world-class level, but he’s been really unlucky. He had a skin condition that set his career back two years, a robbery against Joseph Parker and an unlucky cut and dodgy decision against Pulev, Fury is doing just fine. You may find him boring to watch, but I quite liked how he fought against Sexton and Norrad. That Parker fight (which he should have won) taught him to be more aggressive. The main reason he wasn’t as aggressive against Pulev was because of that unlucky cut he got from training opened up in the early rounds. And it was Samuel Peter’s style that prevented Fury from excelling and made the fight less exciting than it could have been (just like how Kid Galahad messed up Josh Warrington’s concentration). It is also worth bearing in mind that Fury is only 24, and is still learning. I think that one day, Fury will be as good a fighter as his older cousin Tyson. Hughie will be a champion one day, I’m sure of it. The way I see it, Fury already is a champion, because he got robbed of the WBO title. The future of the heavyweight division will probably revolve around the Rostislav Plechko, Ivan Dychko, Nathan Gorman and Hughie Fury. Dubois, Joyce, Ajagba and the other prospects aren’t good enough fighters. I think Fury and Gorman will end up as champions in the end, but they won’t fight each other because they’re related.

I agree on some level, but I do not think he has the potential to be a top 5 heavyweight in an era as strong as this. I disagree, I do not think he is improving at this stage and his trainer is not bringing the best out of him.

It's fine for you to have controversial opinions, but bear in mind your opinion is just that, so it doesn't matter if you think he won every round against Parker and Pulev, you can't state those as unfortunate scenarios for Fury, like fact, because they are not, Parker vs Fury was a strange one, I think Parker won, the judges, in Fury's hometown had it a landslide for Parker, others disagree, that was a very interesting fight with a lot of divided opinion, and yes he was unlucky to get cut against Pulev, but that was not a controversial decision at all, very few people think you can make a case for Fury winning anything more than one round from 5 to 12, I don't know if Fury himself thinks he won, but saying Fury beat Pulev is like saying Hurd beat Williams and Dogboe beat Navarette the first time, it's not 2+2=5, but it is very controversial, and hard to justify. Good point about the skin condition, but there are mistakes he is still making, his tactics, the way he controls the distance, a lot is issues that you can't put down to his skin condition.

Don't make me out to be one of those, because just the other day I defended Andrade, a fighter who is boring for the same reasons as Fury, but wins, I think he is boring to watch, Fury, but he is not improving on my opinion. Norrad and Sexton were big steps down, you can't take anything bad from those fights, but not much, if anything, good.

It was Peter's style? Course it was, a good fighter can adapt to an opponent who merely has an awkward style, but is not fit, is shot, Fury didn't do that so well. You can't make excuses like that, fighters have to deal with cuts in boxing, and all sorts.

He is very young for a heavyweight, he should be learning, but is he improving? I don't think so, I see no improvement, you think he is improving, most people disagree, don't get carried away.

I would be shocked if Fury is ever anywhere near as good as his cousin, 99% sure that won't happen, seems like a very bold prediction, hey, all the best to you, fair play if he shocks us all, we won't find out for 5 years probably, but as far as I'm concerned, he lost fair and square to Pulev, Parker, isn't improving, has time, has made sacrifices, no reason he can't improve, but he needs a new trainer, and he will never be a world champion, no shame in not being good enough to win a world title, and any fighter who gets in that ring deserves respect, but I doubt Hughie will be a world champion.

What impresses you about Hughie Fury? Movement? What do you see from him that makes you think he will be a world champion?

Guy Incognito's picture

Hughie’s movement and use of jab impresses me. I see shades of Tyson in him.

Champion97's picture

OK, but I don't think he uses his jab enough, and he throws it for the sake of throwing it, it isn't a working jab, doesn't set anything up, he doesn't let his opponent work on the inside, which is why Peter could not have any success, but I don't think he can fight on the inside himself, he overreaches, and these are all things he can work on, but they are things he did wrong 2 years ago and still does now, which is why I think he needs a new trainer, he has the combination of experience and being young, he has the ambition, has the discipline outside the ring, but and I think he will be a lot better in 5 years than he is now, can he as good as a Povetkin, Parker, but he will never have the timing, exceptional judgement of distance, exceptional defensive skills of Tyson, I'm 99% sure of that.

Gold's picture

Do you still believe Gorman will end up as a world champion?

Guy Incognito's picture

Yes. He can bounce back.

Champion97's picture

Gorman can bounce back, but is he a good as you thought? And now you agree Dubois is a lot better than you thought? It's tough to have an opinion on prospects who are untested in a lot of ways, you just have to let time tell.

Gold's picture

This is why we watch boxing folks

He lost clearly to Pulev, he ain't world level. He shows shades of Audley instead of shades of Ali like his cousin Tyson.

Guy Incognito's picture

Well I think otherwise. Bear in mind Hughie Fury is still young and learning.
