Hughie Fury (18-0, 10 KOs) will be making his first appearance under a new promotional deal signed with Frank Warren when he fights on the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders vs. Max Bursak on April 30 at the Copper Box Arena in London (aired on BoxNation). As the younger cousin of heavyweight champion and loudmouth Tyson Fury, Hughie aims to soon join his kin as a world title holder.

"I'm delighted to be featuring on BoxNation I boxed on their shows in the past and really enjoyed the experience. I am going to make a big impact over the next few years and join my cousin Tyson at the very top of the sport. Thank you BoxNation and look forward to the 30th April and future fights." Enthused Hughie.

With the heavyweight division reemerging as a division to watch closely, particularly after the long reign of the Klitschko brothers, promoter Frank Warren is giddy about all the potential big fights that could, and should, be on their way.

Warren said, "Hughie is one of the best and most exciting young heavyweight prospects in the world and I'm thrilled to sign him. He wants to fight regularly and for a heavyweight talent of his potential that's essential as he closes in on a world title. The division is certainly opening up with plenty of opportunities and Hughie is going to figure dominantly in the next few years."
