Hughie Fury has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, with his next fight to be announced at a press conference next week.
"I'm over the moon to be signing promotionally with Eddie and joining a stable as strong as Matchroom," said Fury.
"I feel with Matchroom's backing I can kick on now and really fulfil my potential. Watch this space because it'll be exciting times over the next couple of years."
Father and trainer Peter Fury added: "This is fantastic news for Hughie. People forget he's still only 24 years old - a baby for a heavyweight. Signing with Matchroom gives him a perfect platform to achieve his goal of rising to the top of the heavyweight division and I have complete confidence in him doing just that."
I tried to give to Hughie a chance watched a few of his fights and I thought he beat Parker but ultimately the guy is so boring he would put a glass eye to sleep and I don't think he will ever make it to being a top heavyweight no matter who conman Hearn puts him in with.
