Good paycheck for Hughie I presume in a stay busy fight. Peter and Hughie are friends with Khan.

I believe Hughie also trained at Khans gym for a while as an amateur. So thats got him a gig on the card.

Sam Peter was a beast in his early 20's being portrayed as the second coming of Sonny Liston. Made alot of money too soon, stopped training , started partying and lost motivation...probably lost all his money as well.

Never been able to recapture that early form since.

The only place for this Novelty show is Channel 5...They probably got it for free as well. With tabloids having an obsession with Khan will be a good build up.

Maybe a better atmosphere then the usual cards on 5

If Khan loses well a bigger humiliation...Hughie has zero Charisma might give his career a boost having a bigger audience and coverage.

I despair, I really do. Despite all the big talk from Peter Fury, we've had a bloke who spars in his bedroom (Norrad) and a massively overweight geriatric who wouldn't be granted a licence in Britain and who was at his best in 2005! Peter Fury must be a great poker player because how he keeps a straight face is beyond me.
I think he relies heavily on the “Im a traveller and you haven’t got the balls to tell me I’m shit!” Mentality most travellers work to?

“Oh look Peter, you win again with the jack high!”

Sam Peter has been finished as a decent fighter for over a decade. Shocking fight and I'd love it if Hughie got sparked.

Sam Peter??? What is the point exactly? Hughie was competitive with Pulev, he can fight, he doesnt need these kinds of bouts

He didn't get any rounds in against the other guy. And so if he can quickly get back in the ring again for easy money (probably more money than what he got for his short return), then it's a no brainer. Better than remaining inactive and coming back out in the Winter.

Can't be mad at this. Especially when I'll be watching for free anyway.

That's all fair enough, but in development as a fighter, what does Hughie get out of it? I didn't see any improvement between the Parker and Pulev fights, and he is not going to improve fighting guys like Sam Peter (2019 version).

Its not a development fight really.

It's a cash grab and a chance to stay active which is fine.
