Hughie Fury faces a domestic blockbuster against Derek Chisora, his promoter has revealed, following his impressive win over Christian Hammer on Saturday night.

Fury outclassed his German rival in Newcastle, forcing him to retire at the end of the fifth after a grueling beating.

The 27-year-old cousin of WBC champion Tyson Fury has come a step closer to his own world title with that victory and is fourth in the WBA ranking.

And BOXXER promoter Ben Shalom has revealed that veteran heavyweight Chisora ​​is very much in Fury’s view.

“Hughie Fury can become world champion,” Shalom told Sky Sports.

“Christian Hammer wasn’t a joke and I think we saw a Hughie who got cleaner shots, who was more confident, more confident in his body and had more power.

“Whether Christian was hurt or not, I’m not sure. He took a lot of shots and I think Hughie hurt him.

“The heavyweight division is ubiquitous right now. It’s wide open.

“With Hughie, we’re going to try and get the Chisora ​​fighting early next year. We think that’s the next step for him.’

He has other business for Chisora. The 37-year-old will face Joseph Parker at the end of the year in Manchester, after losing to the wily New Zealander when they first met earlier this year.

Parker was given the win via split decision and Chisora ​​is desperate to avenge that defeat, with Shalom revealing that the Briton turned down a fight against Fury over his desire to meet former world champion Parker again.

“We’ve offered Derek the fight,” Shalom said. “I think he knows how good Hughie Fury is – and how technical he is.

“I think he really wanted the Parker rematch. That was what he wanted. He didn’t want to fight Hughie Fury, but let’s see after December it might be different.’
