Hughie Fury Set For May 12th Return
Following a disappointing WBO title challenge against Joseph Parker, Hughie Fury will return to the ring on May 12th as he sets to take on Sam Sexton, for Sexton’s British Heavyweight title in Bolton, at the Bolton Whites hotel.
As reported by World Boxing News, the event, promoted by Mick Hennessy, will bring boxing and more importantly the British heavyweight crown back to free television in the United Kingdom, and also the home of Hughie Fury’s first pro fight, Channel 5.
In a press reelase, Caj Sohal, Head of Sport for Channel 5 said, “Live boxing is a key component of our sporting slate and we’re committed to delivering the most exciting bouts in the UK. We’re delighted to bring the British Heavyweight title to a wider audience and with two terrific heavyweight fighters stepping into the ring, this is a must-see fight for boxing fans.”
As opposed to Furty, Sexton is coming off a massive upset over Gary Cornish in October, via unanimous decision to claim the vacant title.
