Hughie Handed Firtha Test In Germany

By Elliot Foster (@FreelanceFoz)

Hughie Fury will feature on the undercard of his cousin’s world title challenge next month.

The undefeated heavyweight, who holds a record of 16-0 (8), will come up against tough opposition in Germany.

Fury turns 21 on Friday and will come up against Nicolai Firtha on October 24 at the ESPRIT Arena in Dusseldorf as part of Tyson’s challenge for the world heavyweight titles against Wladimir Klitschko, which will be aired in the UK on Sky Sports Box Office.

The Ohio native will be familiar to Brits from when he faced Tyson Fury in Belfast back in 2011 before being stopped inside five rounds.

Firtha, 36, last fought two years against current WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who ousted him inside four.

The fight will be Fury’s third of the year, having passed Andriy Rudenko and George Arias earlier in the year, while also overcoming a spell of illness.
