    Team Fury is trying to line up a world ranked opponent for unbeaten Hughie Fury (18-0, 10 KOs)

    Contracts have gone out to WBA #5, WBO #5 rated Alexander Ustinov (33-1, 24 KOs).


    Peter Fury @peterfury We not looking at world titles for Hughie. But good learning fights we not afraid of him mixing in the top ten. Ranking donít matter.

    Peter Fury @peterfury We now offered Ustinov ranked no 5 WBA WBO & contracts gone out. Frank Warren trying to make this happen. Awaiting news from Frank.

    Peter Fury @peterfury As you know Fedisov asked for a price & was agreed. Heís ranked 7 WBA IBF. They declined.

    What do you guys make of this potential match-up?

    --- Ustinov was a very strong, dangerous opponent who seems to have gone independent of the usual Euro shady promoters and now can hardly get a fight these days.

    I'd normally pick him to KO Hughie in a heartbeat, but could be he has physical ailments and may not be his usual strong self. Hard to say given his below radar profile, but then again this may be just a Fury press relief to get the other Fury back in the public memory, the Furious Two as it were.
