“We’re going to knock them [the Furys] down one by one, Hughie first.

“He’s in the way, I’m going for the belts and anyone in my way I’ve got to run them over.

“We know he can fight. Does he have the skills and determination to compete with me? I don’t think so. Only one way to find out.”

Hunter – who drew with Jerry Forrest last December – added: “He just can’t punch.

“He’s good, I think he’s a decent boxer, he’s got some decent skills, he’s tall, he’s long, he comes from the Fury family.

“The best thing we can say is he comes from a Fury family, a fighting family. That’s the best thing I can see.
