Hughie Fury Aims To Be The Youngest Heavyweight Champion of the World

London (11 June) Hughie Fury is determined to become the youngest world heavyweight champion after his latest knockout win.

After demolishing the durable Ladislav Kovarik inside round-one, the 18-year-old heavyweight has his eyes focussed on Iron Mike Tyson’s infamous record.
“I’ve got plenty of time, I’m only young and I’m improving every single fight,” Hughie said.
“But I will do it, I will beat Mike Tyson’s record and be the youngest heavyweight world champion.”
Hughie faced Czech Republic fighter Kovarik, the man who took Martin Rogan the distance back in February, on the James DeGale undercard Saturday night, at Glow Bluewater, shown on Channel 5 in the UK and Wealth TV in the US.
From the opening bell Hughie landed solid left jabs, moving across the ring and picking his openings.
A firm left lead followed by smashing right hands sent Kovarik down for the first eight-count of the round.
Hughie, the first ever British/Irish fighter to win a gold medal at the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships at super-heavyweight, sensed the finish and moved in.
Landing solid lefts and rights, Kovarik was, once again, sent to the canvas – this time crashing across the ring and into the ropes with referee Mark Green waving off the contest.
