Last Updated: 26/05/19 9:42am
British heavyweight Hughie Fury says he is ready for a tougher challenge after a comfortable win over Chris Norrad on Saturday.
Fury bounced back from a points loss to Kubrat Pulev last October, stopping Canadian Norrad in the second round in Manchester.
The 24-year-old now has a 22-2 record as a pro, his other loss having come to Joseph Parker when he challenged for a world title in 2017.

Fury comfortably outclassed the previously unbeaten Norrad at Victoria Warehouse, landing the stoppage with over a minute left in round two.
Fury said: "I was messing around in there, taking my time. At this level, it is easy for me.
"The losses I have had are experience for the future. I am a lot stronger and fitter now."
Peter Fury, who trains his son, says Hughie could take on a more highly-rated opponent in September.
