The British heavyweight boxer Hughie Fury says he's received an 'inspiring' letter from former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of his world title fight against New Zealand's Joseph Parker.
The 22-year-old will fight Parker in Auckland in May for the WBO belt which Parker holds after being vacated by Hughie's cousin Tyson Fury.
"That was the greatest moment, to receive that letter," said Fury, a United supporter.
"He wished me all the best and told me not to let the occasion get above me.
"It was very inspiring what he had to say," he added.
