Hughie Fury boxing trainer and father Peter Fury comes up with a meme of world champion Joseph Parker’s promoter.
Yesterday saw one of the more bizarre incident’s in boxing this year when WBO heavyweight world champion Joseph Parker’s promoter David Higgins stormed the fight week press conference and confronted Fury’s team in front of the onlooking media and public ahead of this weekend’s fight.
Subsequently in post-fight interviews, Hughie Fury trainer and father Peter Fury suggested that Higgins could have either been very drunk or under the influence of a substance.
These sentiments were also echoed by promoter of this weekend’s event Mick Hennessy.
Peter Fury has now released the following meme / photo shop image:

The bout is scheduled to take place this Saturday at the Manchester Arena and will take place for the first time ever on YouTube pay per view.
Speaking at the fight week press conference a YouTube executive in attendance made reference to the fact that the platform has already shown many major live sporting events in the past such as the UEFA Cup and Champions League finals in soccer.
He also pointed out that the platform caters to a younger audience and demographic and it is hoped that the experiment this weekend will be the start of a long-term move for boxing, or at least Hennessy Promotions’s boxing output, as more and more fight fans continue to go online to consume their boxing content.
