EXCLUSIVE: Fury blasts Khan

Amir Khan has been blasted by the teenage heavyweight aiming to rub Mike Tyson out of the record books.
Eighteen-year-old Hughie Fury has made a punch-perfect start to his professional career – winning all eight fights – and faces his biggest test when he meets Shane McPhilbin in Rotherham on Saturday, September 14.
McPhilbin is a tough-as-old-boots former British cruiserweight champion – and Fury is already looking beyond him and towards his target of becoming the youngest world heavyweight champion.
That would mean fighting for a major belt by December, 2014 – and Fury has already conquered the world as an amateur.
He won the world junior championships last year while he boxed for Bolton Golden Gloves, the club set up by Khan.
But Fury said: “He took all the credit when I won the world championship, but it was my dad (Peter) who got me there.
“He trained me, not Amir Khan.
“I’ve been unbeaten ever since I started training with my dad when I was 15 years old.
“He brings the best out in me.
“My dad knows how I should box, what foods to eat and nobody knows me better.”
Fury regularly spars cousin Tyson Fury, currently preparing to battle David Haye in Manchester on Saturday, September 28.
Tyson predicts ‘The Fury-ous Two’ will dominate the heavyweight division after the Klitschkos and added: “Hughie spars me without a head guard and holds his own.
“He’s got a heart, chin and comes back when he gets hit and hurt. If he gets hit, it’s like pouring petrol on a fire !
“He has a good jab and is very patient. He will gain more strength and power as he gets older.
“He has really come on in the last two years. He was a gangly kid who weighed around 63 kilos, won a few fights and lost a few fights. I think he lost three fights in a row at one stage, but it didn’t dishearten him.
“He was always in the gym and travelling between Manchester, Lancaster, Sheffield and Doncaster.
“He would go by himself on different trains and all his hard work obviously paid off. 
“He achieved the world championship as an amateur and he’s on his way to being a top pro.”
