Cassius Chaney, Hughie Fury’s old sparring partner who hopes to overtake him in the booming heavyweight scene, has issued a warning to the former champion.
Chaney, who has a perfect record of 21 wins and 14 knockouts, is now eyeing Fury, who takes on Christian Hammer in Newcastle on Saturday.
Despite his plethora of experience, Fury, who is still only 27 years old, hopes to re-enter the world title picture with a decisive victory on Saturday.
“I and Hughie would make a fascinating battle since our styles are completely different,” Cassius Chaney said of Fury.
“If I arrived at the UK, Hughie and I would have a good fight. I sparred with Hughie a few times. I first came out to support Tyson when he was fighting Wladimir Klitschko. Then I returned to assist Hughie in his fight with Kubrat Pulev.
“Hughie would have a hard time with my demeanour. When I put it into practice, I have a powerful style. What’s the deal with Hughie? He’s savvy in the ring, and he has the experience that most people don’t recognise. He is a skilled boxer.
“You have to solve the puzzle, but we’ve played a few rounds together, so I know how he moves.”
“I had no experience, and then Fury came in and won.” It was fantastic to be a part of a championship-level camp.”
With Anthony Joshua losing his WBA, IBF, and WBO championships to Oleksandr Usyk last month and activating a rematch clause for next year, Dillian Whyte can establish himself as Fury’s mandatory challenger if he defeats Otto Wallin.
“It’s all about game strategy,” Chaney said of Tyson Fury. I assisted Otto Wallin in his fight against Fury. His strategy was quite clever.
“He fared well in the fight, which helped his name and career.”
