Hughie Fury facts
- Hughie is primarily coached by his father, Peter, who has a seedy past relating to his experiences with the underworld. Peter was jailed twice during Hughie’s childhood and ran a drug empire from behind bars.
- In May 2016, Peter claimed in the media that Hughie was operating at about 30 or 40 percent of his capacity due to an ongoing skin condition, which was causing him fatigue and affecting his immune system. He also said that Hughie was suffering from these health problems since January 2015. It was later discovered that the badly infected blood in his system was poisoning him from within. Hughie further mentioned that he had experienced this type of acne since the age of 15. After months of treatment, by the end of 2017, he had overcome the issue.
- In December 2016, after Joseph Parker wbo heavyweight title win; Hughie, who was ranked number 2 by wbo, was in contention to fight further Joseph. The match was scheduled to take place on 6 May 2017 in New Zealand.
- However, in March 2017, Peter was denied entry to New Zealand due to his criminal past. In the mid-1990s, he was imprisoned for 10 years for drug-related offenses. After several talks with local authorities, Peter was granted a 2-month visa to enter New Zealand to prepare Hughie for the title challenge. However all efforts went in vain as the fight was later rescheduled to September 2017.
