Live today at 4 pm ET (so right now), Hughie Fury returns to the ring to face Chris Norrad in a Channel 5 (UK) main event from Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, England.
Here’s the tale of the tape:
Fury is still a notable name at heavyweight despite losing to Joseph Parker in a 2017 title bid and to Kubrat Pulev in an IBF eliminator last October. Between those fights, he won the British title from Sam Sexton, which he gave up instead of defending it at all.
Norrad is a total unknown, unbeaten in 17 fights over a decade but also has never fought outside of New Brunswick. He just fought on May 4, beating Abraham Pascual in Miramichi by six-round decision. He’s fought in May 2017, May 2018, and May 2019 in his last three, and this year decided to double dip.
The show also has other fights on it but I’m rushing to get this up since we found a way to watch for the main event, so just tune in and talk nonsense with me.
