Hughie Fury is not remotely picky about who he has to get through to reach his ultimate goal of a world heavyweight title.
The talented Lancastrian has already taken on then-world champion Joseph Parker, travelled to face No.1 contender Kubrat Pulev and now heads for Saudi Arabia to tackle another former world champion in Samuel Peter.
As Fury (22-2, 12 KOs) heads off to take on ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ Peter (38-7, 31 KOs), who held the WBC world heavyweight crown until defeat to Vitali Klitschko in 2008 and is full of enthusiasm at taking on his next big name.
Fury said: “I’m looking forward to fighting Peter. It’s great to have this kind of momentum and the activity only helps me improve. I want this year to be very busy.
“Peter is a very dangerous man and we all know that in this division, one punch can end it. He’s knocked out a lot of people has a good KO ratio but I’ll just go in there and do my job. I’ll prepare for the best Samuel Peter.
“I’ve never been interested in fighting bums. I want to fight the best. I believe I’ve had some bad luck with my two losses but I just want to keep getting in there and testing myself.
“I’m not afraid to fight anyone. I’m not afraid to go to anyone’s back yard either. I showed that by going to Bulgaria to take on Pulev.”
Joining Fury on the Amir Khan vs. Billy Dib bill in Jeddah are MTK Global team-mates Lerato Dlamini, Shakhobidin Zoirov and Zuhayr Al-Qahtani.
