His recent performances have been terrible, Whats going on with that right hand?

Starting to wonder if Peter fury has actually realised and worked on it with him.

When throwing it from far out, off the jab, it looks like he's swinging a handbag. The opponent, like Peter last night, has no respect for it and can get close to Hughie.

Strangely, when the opponents get a bit too close for comfort, Hughie can then sometimes unleash a shorter right hand which seems a lot more effective. He did this against Parker and stunned him a bit. He also did it against Pulev and clearly hurt him.

If he could throw his long punches with the same venom, he'd be a far more effective fighter. He landed long right hands on Peter at will, but they had no effect whatsoever.

Peter Fury is NOT the top tactician/trainer that a great many think he is. Hughie has a lot of natural skill which is being stifled by Peter. Hard to leave your Dad/trainer but has to be done in order to further his career.

Been saying this for a while now once it became obvious that Hughie simply wasn't improving. Indeed, I would say he has regressed since the Parker fight.
