Tyson Fury’s little cousin Hughie Fury is officially returning to the ring on July 8th at the Copper Box Arena in London. Fury, The mandatory challenger for the WBO title, will take a tune up fight before fighting Joseph Parker for the belt later this year.

Promoter Frank Warren officially announced the fight on Thursday but an opponent was not mentioned. Fury was originally supposed to fight for the title on Parker’s home turf in New Zealand but a back injury forced the challenger to step aside.

“I was disappointed to miss out my shot against Parker but this is boxing and injuries happen all of the time. I will get my shot at the WBO heavyweight belt later this year and follow in the footsteps of Tyson,” said Hughie according to ESPN.

His coaching staff is treating this fight for what it is – a tune up. It’s warm up for Fury so that he can shake off any left over rustiness.

“We are treating this fight as a warm-up to the big one later this year. The division is certainly opening up with plenty of opportunities and we are confident that Hughie is going to figure dominantly for years to come,” commented Peter Fury.

“I am confident that the WBO heavyweight belt will once again be in possession of the Fury family come the end of the year,” he summarised.
