May 6th is drawing nearer and the chance for Hughie Fury to emulate his cousin and lift a version of the world title draws closer.

As things stand, Hughie Fury, who has a record that reads 20-0 with 10 wins coming by way of knockout is set to face the WBO heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker, at the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. Parker currently has a record that reads 22-0 with 18 wins coming by way of knockout.

But, it appears that Hughie is having second thoughts about venturing to New Zealand for his title chance, to fight Parker in front of his own fans.

Instead there are mutterings that Hughie Fury and his team would like to move the bout to the United Kingdom, even though it is less than a month before the fight is scheduled to take place.

Whether Hughie?s backers can come up with the cash to get the fight switched from New Zealand to the UK remains to be seen, but surely all this should have been sorted long before the fight contract was signed.
