Helliet show unleashes new Fury on September 27

The latest fighting Fury is ready to enter the professional ring. Dempsey Fury will join big brother Phill and cousins Tyson and Hughie in the paid ranks when he makes his debut on promoter Mickey Helliet’s ‘Too Fast Too Furious’ show at the Camden Centre on Friday, September 27.

Real name Hughie, the super-middleweight prospect will take on his middle name to avoid confusion with his cousin. And according to his father and trainer, Dempsey fights like the ferocious slugger he was named after.

Hughie Fury says Dempsey is  "a very, very good puncher" and although just 18, he reckons his son is already a ring veteran

"There's a gym in our back garden at the family home in Lancaster and boxing is all Dempsey has ever known," said Hughie.

"By the time he was 13 a lot of moves were coming naturally to him. For an 18 year-old, he is very experienced."

Fury had around 50 amateur bouts in both England and Ireland and although his father says his biggest attributes are his raw aggression and punching power, Dempsey has also shown the ring know how to keep himself safe as a journeyman on the unlicensed circuit.

"He's got everything," said Hughie. "He's a very good puncher, switches stances and is a natural counter puncher. I was a useless boxer, so I don't know how I keep breeding good fighters."

Hughie says he will be "very disappointed" if Dempsey doesn't reach British-title level. He's already keen for fights to be made against unbeatens Frank Buglioni and Anthony Ogogo and says the travelling community will get behind Dempsey.

"All the travellers know he fights for fun and want to see him box," said Hughie, who trained Tyson at the start of his professional career.

"I've had phone calls every day from Lancaster, Luton, Leicester and everywhere. They all know he's hard as concrete and can really fight."

Topping the bill at the Camden Centre, Elliott Matthews and Darren Codona meet for the vacant Southern Area middleweight title. Tickets are available from 07557-958059.


Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Crag Whyatt v Ben Moorish, Camden Centre, 11th April

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
