By Scott Gilfoid: 19-year-old heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury (12-0, 7 KO’s) still believes that he’ll be breaking Mike Tyson’s record as the youngest heavyweight world champion of all-time. Mike Tyson was only 20 1/2 when he first captured a world title when he stopped WBC heavyweight champion Trevor Berbeck in the 2nd round back in 1986. Hughie just turned 19 last September.
What this means is that if the 6’6″ Hughie is to have any chance of breaking the record, he’ll need to fight for a world title by next year or early 2015. If he fails to do then Hughie won’t be breaking the record.
