What they said
Hughie Fury: “The win is not the priority. It’s how I win. I’m going to put on an exciting show. This time, like the Sam Sexton fight, there’s going to be fireworks.
“For a start, you’ll see a big difference in my physique because we’ve brought Kerry Kayes on board and I’m much stronger in my body.
“I never liked sounding my own horn. Fighters can talk as much as you want during the build-up but I’ve always preferred to do my talking on fight night, inside the ring, the only place that matters”.
Chris Norrad: “Working in the woods for 10 years built up strength and I possess a pretty powerful right hand.
“But I like to think my way through a fight. I’m smart and usually out jab the opposition. If you get the jab going it’ll win the fight for you.”
“There’s been a lot of talk recently of me challenging for the Canadian heavyweight title but I’m sure Team Fury will be screaming for a big money rematch, once I’ve defeated Hughie!”
What are the odds?
- Hughie Fury to win: 1/100
- Chris Norrad to win: 18/1
- Draw: 33/1
