Got a decent jab and some defensive skills, but throws his right hand from the back of the arena. Has he ever landed it?

Hughie is a decent British level fighter but no more. He'll never amount to anything at world level. He is a slightly better version of Dave Allen.

Bakole vs. Kuzmin is off.
Allen has rejected the chance to face Bakole on August 22nd.

I reckon Hughie will step up if asked...

Peter Fury update on Hughie :

"We're hoping to see Hughie probably in November, early December. Hopefully he can get on one of the cards there and get in a good meaningful fight. He's training and we are just waiting on a date for Hughie."

"He's matured, he's a big heavyweight and he's hitting with a lot of power as well. We've got to look to the future for Hughie and I think in his next fight, people are going to wake up and see that he's finally arrived. I predict very big things for him."

Peter has been predicting big things for a long time. And talking about a new improved version of Hughie emerging for a longtime.

He needs to stepaside and let Hughie be trained by one of the elite coaches in the game. I am sure Peter is a good coach but sometimes a fighter can stagnate and needs fresh in put.

Is it not a warning sign the only fighter who has stuck around is Hughie? Most fighters tend to leave Peter in the end, can see Savannah sticking around though as she seems very loyal.

I think you are most probably right and at only 25 - still young for a heavyweight - someone else should be able to extract a bit more out of Hughie.

Needs to show some more shades of Ali.

Before he started showing shades of Ali. When Hughie first turned pro at 18 Peter stated he was going to beat Mike Tysons record as the youngest guy to win a title at Heavyweight.

At the rate he has been going he will end up as a poor mans Joe Bugner.

A smart coach knows his limitations and those of his surroundings . Years ago George Peterson who was the Coach of Paul Williams, regularly took him around the country from DC to Philly, Detroit, LA, Houston and so on and so forth. Sparring in the toughest gyms in the toughest neighbourhoods and absorbing the knowledge of different Coaches. This also helped him stay mentally fresh by doing different types of drills practiced in those gyms . Williams became a more rounded and confident fighter as a result.

Whatever Peter has been doing so far is clearly not fully clicking. Just like George Peterson he needs to think outside the Box and try something different.

Otherwise its just going to be rinse and repeat everytime Hughie steps in with a high calibre opponent.

Big statements can come back and bite you. Not to mention the unnecessary pressure they can put on the person you make them about.

Maybe the kid has no real passion for boxing and just doing it to please daddy. Perhaps Peters statements reflect he has a greater ambition then Hughie.
