Hughie Fury vs Christian Hammer: When, where and what TV channel it is on?

Hughie is looking to bounce back and make a statement of intent after three career defeats to Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin and Kubrat Pulev.

Hughie Fury returns to the ring this weekend looking to get closer to a title shot.

Trained by father Peter Fury, who guided Tyson Fury to heavyweight glory in 2015, takes on experienced fighter Christian Hammer in Newcastle.

Hughie is ranked inside the top five by the WBA and is also No.14 with the IBF. Both titles currently belong to Oleksandr Usyk, who also owns the WBO strap after outpointing Anthony Joshua in London.

Fury - who decided to leave Matchroom Boxing to join Sky Sports Boxing's new era - is fighting for the first time since overcoming Mariusz Wach in December.

Hammer has been in with some of the biggest names in the sport, including Tyson Fury, Luis Ortiz and prospect Tony Yoka, who beat him via unanimous decision in November.

Hammer is a huge underdog for the upcoming fight and with seven defeats from 33 bouts, and being on the wrong side of 30, Fury should overcome the German quite comfortably.
