Tyson Fury is best British boxer, believes Brian Hughes

by Derick Allsop, Sunday Mirror, 4th Sept

TYSON FURY can break the Klitschkos’ stranglehold on heavyweight boxing says one of the most respected figures in the sport – Brian Hughes.

Now British and Common -wealth champ, Fury aims to maintain his career momentum at Belfast’s King’s Hall on Saturday week.

But the 23-year-old Mancunian’s ultimate goal is to unseat Wladimir Klitschko – ­conqueror of David Haye – and brother Vitali.

Hughes, Fury’s coach ­until retiring earlier this year after half a century in ­boxing, said: “Tyson has all the ammunition to be world heavyweight champion and I’ve no doubts he can beat either Klitschko.

“He’s certainly got a far better chance than Haye.

“He has boxing ability as well as natural power and strength.

“Tyson’s a genuine heavyweight. He’s got the ability, the personality and, unlike Haye and Audley Harrison, he truly can become a great British world champion.”
