During October’s interview with Boxing Monthly, Tyson Fury outlined his plans for world domination before declaring that he will retire relatively early. When asked what comes next, he pointed to Hughie Fury (18-0, 10 early) - his cousin and a fellow heavyweight contender - and said: “Him. As I said, I don’t care about the titles, he’s the man for the titles - he’ll reign as champion for a very long time.”

For the many boxers fighting in Japan between 26-31 December Christmas is cancelled with a mixture of some of the sport’s elite pugilists, domestic contenders and a selection of the country’s brightest young hopes all in action and aiming to take the next step up the professional ladder. The action commences on Boxing Day at the Central Gym in Kobe where Shun Kubo (8-0, 6 KOs) and Lloyd Jardeliza (7-2-1, 6 KOs) vie for the vacant OPBF 122lbs title.

Action man Porter eyes 147lbs summit

Occasionally, before pen has been put to paper to officially sign off on a big fight, there is a moment that transforms a rumoured marquee contest from a possibility into a probability. “I think you saw more action in these four rounds and more value for money than you’ve seen in Floyd’s whole career. I’ll just leave it that,” was Ricky Hatton’s message to Floyd Mayweather Jr on HBO after a trademark left hook to the body ended Jose Luis Castillo’s chances of victory when the pair met in June 2007. Mayweather and Hatton fought six months later. Shawn Porter against Keith Thurman may not carry the same magnitude as a premier boxing event, but it can be strongly argued that a showdown between the two elite American welterweights could go a long way to deciding who will pick up the baton from the now retired Mayweather as the country’s and possibly the world’s best 147lbs fighter.
