Heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury will have a substantial height and weight advantage for his professional debut tonight at the Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada, live on WealthTV. The 18-year-old prospect weighed 234.4 pounds at Thursday's official weigh in, with his opponent David Whittom, 34, weighing in at 207.8 pounds. Fury is the cousin of undefeated Tyson Fury.
There are certainly high hopes for Hughie, who, standing at six-feet and eight-inches, has a seven-inch height and 26.6 pounds weight advantage over Whittom.
The pair meet on the undercard to IBF #1 super middleweight, Adonis Stevenson, looking to avenge his only professional loss against Darnell Boone at the Bell Centre, Montreal.
Stevenson fought through a left hand injury to force a 12 round TKO of Don George in his last contest and has been promised the winner of the IBF/WBA unifier between Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler on May 25.
Also on the card will be Eleider Alvarez (11-0, 7KO) and Nicholson Poulard (19-3, 9KO) ...
