The Debut of Hughie Fury Against David Whittom Will Be Televised By Wealth TV Friday


Heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury “can’t wait” to get David Whittom “out of the way” on his professional debut this Friday live on Wealth TV.

The 18-year-old was scheduled to make his debut on the undercard to his cousin, Tyson Fury’s, IBF world title eliminator against Steve Cunningham at The Theatre, Madison Square Garden, New York, on April 20, but now that will be the second fight of Hennessy Sports’ latest addition, as Hughie prepares to take on David Whittom in Canada this Friday.

“I prefer that I’m fighting sooner, because now I can get warmed up and perform better – I can have my first pro fight, get used to the crowd, the atmosphere and the big arena at the Bell Centre,” Hughie said.

“I’m hoping to get all the pro debut nerves out of the way, I want to show my boxing skill and show everybody what I’m made of with a good performance, I can’t wait.

“This is the first one, I can use it to settle in and get used to the pro game and then hopefully step it up at Madison Square Garden.”

There are certainly high hopes for Hughie who, standing at six-feet and eight-inches, certainly has the attributes to make a big impression.

But Hughie cannot afford to underestimate his opponent.
