Estranged! Hughie Fury reveals he’s not on talking terms with cousin Tyson

Hughie Fury has revealed that he has not been on talking terms with cousin brother Tyson ever since his father Peter stopped training the latter.

Peter parted ways with his nephew Tyson in January this year before the former world champion signed up with Ben Davidson.

However, Hughie has ruled out ever trading punches with Tyson in the future.

“I definitely wouldn’t fight him. I wouldn’t lower myself to that level,” said Hughie, who challenged (but lost) for the WBO heavyweight title against Joseph Parker in his last fight.

“Family is family, even if you don’t speak. You don’t put yourself in the ring just for money.

“I’ve not spoken to him much, but I wish him all the best and I hope he does well. If he gets a world title, he gets one. I’ve not got animosity for anyone.”

Meanwhile, Hughie is scheduled to lock horns with Sam Sexton for the British heavyweight belt in Bolton on Saturday night.

And should he win, he has his eyes firmly set on a showdown with IBF, IBO, WBA, and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

“I believe styles make fights and I believe I’m Joshua’s worst nightmare,” he said.
