Hughie Fury and Dominick Guinn fight Saturday night at the Wembley Arena.
Hughie Fury enters this fight with a 18-0 record that includes 10 knockouts. This will be Fury’s fifth fight since 2015, and he’s coming off a December win over Larry Olubamiwo. Fury is a massive fighter at 6’6” and is quickly building his way up as one of England's best at just 21 years old. Fury’s size and reach allows him to do a lot of damage while avoiding counters from his opponents. It’s no question Fury is a star in the making and is going to have a long successful career due to him being so tough to hit consistently. On the flipside, we have no idea about Fury’s chin, as he has yet to be really tested due to majority of his bouts ending rather quickly. This will be Fury’s fourth fight in London.

Dominick Guinn enters this fight with a 35-10-1 record that includes 24 knockouts. Guinn has split his last eight fights and is coming off a February 2015 win over Donnie Davis. Guinn is a battle tested 40-year-old who has fought some big punchers but has yet to be knocked out. Guinn has a massive reach of 78 inches that allows him to also box at a distance and avoid big counters. The concerns with Guinn is that there’s not much left in the tank given his age and he’s been out of the sport for a little over a year, so there’s also concerns of rust. This will be Guinn’s fifth fight outside of the United States. Guinn has won just one career fight outside of his homeland.
This is just another warm up fight to keep Fury busy, as Guinn has no reason being in the same ring as the 21-year-old. Guinn is washed up, has lost four of his last six fights and doesn’t have the polished skill set to hang with Fury. However, I’m not sure Fury is going to be the first to knock Guinn out, as his chin has proven to be rock solid over the years.
Nonetheless, Fury remain unbeaten after this bout.
