Hughie Fury targets sterner tests after stopping Chris Norrad in two on return to the ring


Hughie Fury has set his sights on tougher tests after claiming a comfortable victory over Chris Norrad on his return to the ring. 

The British heavyweight made light work of Norrad by stopping him inside two rounds in Manchester on Saturday night.

Fury had spent the last seven months out of the ring following a close points defeat by Kubrat Pulev last October. 

The 24-year-old, whose only other defeat came in his world title attempt against Joseph Parker in 2017, is eager for sterner challengers as he looks to climb back towards the top of the rankings.

‘I was messing around in there, taking my time. At this level, it is easy for me,’ Fury said.

‘The losses I have had are experience for the future. I am a lot stronger and fitter now.’

Peter Fury, who trains his son, revealed that Hughie is likely to face a more highly-rated opponent in his next outing in September.
