Hughie Fury Faces Patrick Korte On The Price-McCaskill Card

Hughie Fury will box Patrick Korte in a heavyweight clash on the Lauren Price vs. Jessica McCaskill card on May 11.

Fury hopes to continue his recent activity. He has only boxed once since he beat Christian Hammer in 2021. He had been suffering from the long-term impact of COVID-19, as he pulled out of his 2022 clash against Michael Hunter. Fury returned to action last month, beating Kostiantyn Dovbyshchenko via a decision.

The closest Fury came to winning a world title was a majority decision loss to Joseph Parker, the former WBO Heavyweight Champion. His two other losses have come against world-level opposition, Kubrat Pulev and Alexander PovetkinHis opponent, Korte, is at the latter end of his career.

The 40-year-old is 23-1-0. He is the more active fighter, having won his last two bouts against Alen Lauriolle and Nabil Zaky, respectively. He lost in his biggest fight against Demsey McKean with a third-round stoppage defeat in 2022. 

Fury fights a week before his cousin, Tyson Fury, takes on Oleksandr Usyk for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship on May 18. Hughie hopes to win, which could be the start of a successful win for the Fury family. At 29, Hughie has plenty left in his career.
