Hughie Fury Believes He Beat Parker
Coming off a disappointing loss to Joseph Parker in 2017, Hughie Fury looks to claim the British heavyweight title on May 12th against Sam Sexton.
The 23 year old, who is ten years younger than the defending champion, believes he should have walked out WBO world champion in September when he lost via a controversial unanimous decision to Parker.
“I went in against Parker just shy of turning 23 and not having fought for nearly a year and half and in my heart I truly felt that I was the winner that night, the judges thought otherwise, but I know I should now be the World Champion,” Said Fury.
“That’s all said and done now and despite the decision going against me I have to look at the positives from my performance and taking Parker the full twelve-round distance… using my footwork and defensive skills to make a supposed hard-hitting World Champion look slow and ponderous,”
“There is more I could have done on the night, but we’ve addressed that with my dad and trainer Peter which we’ve been hard on in the gym and we’re looking forward to coming back against Sexton with that added experience and improvements which I believe will be a crucial factor in me winning the fight,”
