Heavyweight contender Michael Hunter has no fear of the punching power of Hughie Fury, who is the younger cousin of WBC world champion Tyson Fury.

Hunter will face Fury in London on July 2. The last time Hunter came over to the UK, in 2018, he shocked Martin Bakole with a stoppage win.

The fight between Fury and Hunter will be a WBA final eliminator, with the winner getting a mandatory crack at the winner of next Saturday's fight between Trevor Bryan and Daniel Dubois - who battle for the WBA "regular" title.

Fury has dropped decision losses in the biggest fights of his career, against Alexander Povetkin, Joseph Parker and Kubrat Pulev. He can't afford another setback.

Hunter will enter the fight for the first time since last December's controversial draw with Jerry Forrest. Fury saw action back in October, when he stopped veteran Christian Hammer.

Hunter is really looking forward to the fight, because a win over Fury will catapult him towards bigger things.

"He just can't punch," Hunter said of Fury, speaking to Sky Sports. "He's good, I think he's a decent boxer, he's got some decent skills, he's tall, he's long, he comes from the Fury family.

"The best thing we can say is he comes from a Fury family, a fighting family. That's the best thing I can see. I don't think he's a great puncher, when you say technical boxer that's what I see, it means he's just not a puncher.

"I'm excited to be over in England and display my skills. We're going to knock them [the Furys] down one by one, Hughie first. He's in the way, I'm going for the belts and anyone in my way I've got to run them over. We know he can fight. Does he have the skills and determination to compete with me? I don't think so. Only one way to find out."
