Hughie Fury claims it is his fortune to beat WBO champ Joseph Parker and imitate his cousin Tyson by fitting world heavyweight champ.

Fury, 22, has overcome the skin proviso acne conglobata to earn his shot versus the unbeaten Parker at Manchester Arena tonight.

He fought with an ulcerated mouth and blistered neck in his last contest in April 2016 because of the proviso and says it has been tough.

“I’ve not had the easiest road, particularly with my illnesses and stuff like that,” said Fury, who is 20-0.

“My battles have been outside the ring. I trust this is my destiny.

“No-one will have seen what will hit Joseph Parker. This is a various Hughie Fury. I’m so hungry. When I say I am going to knock him out, I will knock him out.”
