Peter Fury is preparing Hughie Fury to face Alexander Povetkin on August 31

Hughie Fury can still stake his claim as the world’s best heavyweight as there is “nobody at No 1”, says his father and trainer Peter Fury.

The 24-year-old will propel himself back into title contention if he defeats Alexander Povetkin on the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Luke Campbell bill at The O2 on August 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Andy Ruiz Jr currently holds three world heavyweight titles after his shock win over Anthony Joshua, while Deontay Wilder remains the long-reigning WBC champion, but Peter Fury thinks more career defining fights are needed to clear up any debate about the division’s top fighter.
