He can likely be involved in 'big' fights still because of the name recognition, but I don't see him being able to beat anyone of note right now.

His style is horrible, but he's not horrible. Arguably beat Parker and only lost to Pulev. Rematch with Parker should be in the works at some point if I were his promoter.

But look at that record! Nobody has been able to beat him!

Side note, but interesting to see Alex Dilmaghani on this card. After spells in Mexico and Canada, this will be his first fight in the UK since 2013.
Dilmaghani is one talented fighter I believe he beats anyone domestically at 130.

Hughie is in an odd position.
Few calls for him to chase Pulev but Pulev will wait for Joshua mandatory.
WBA 'Regular' is the biggest Title he can hope to achieve anytime soon I reckon...
Chase Pulev?

A rematch you mean?

Hughie looked like a journeyman...from the 1980's in his last fight.

He does not seem to have it mentally exudes a lack of confidence...or perhaps he simply does not have a passion for boxing. Just a case of a boxing career being his dads ambition rather then his.

Perhaps Hughie will work his way up through the Canadians? Beat Norrad, then move up to the #7 ranked Canadian and so on.
