Hughie Fury extended his unbeaten record to six with a points success over Tomas Mrazek.

The 18-year-old, cousin of Tyson Fury, boasted earlier this week that he intends to break Mike Tyson's record and become the youngest heavyweight world champion.

Fury is keeping busy, as he was in action last Saturday - knocking out Ladislav Kovarik - and seven days on he was taken to points in a six-round contest at the Epic Centre in Norwich.

Mrazek is a journeyman fighter with a poor record, he had lost nine of his last 10 fights and had not won since 2011, but he was able to take Fury all the way to the cards.

There was never any danger of Fury being beaten, but he failed to put his opponent away and had to settle for a 60:54 verdict.

Darren Corbett is scheduled to be Fury's next opponent in Dundalk on July 12.
