After having been inactive through illness since May, Hughie Fury returns to the ring in February.

Hughie, an unbeaten heavyweight prospect and the cousin of Tyson, will be taking on the tough Ukrainian Andriy Rudenko.

It represents a huge step up in class for Hughie with Rudenko having quite a formidable record. In his career so far he has lost only once in twenty-four fight, that being in his last fight against the Australian prospect Lucas Browne.

Prior to that defeat he has stopped 12 of his last 14 opponents stopping most inside for rounds.

Hughie once boasted that he?d beat the record currently held by Mike Tyson for being the youngest world heavyweight champion ever, that ambition may have died but if Hughie can become the first person to stop the heavy-handed Rudenko then he?ll have something of note on his career record.
