Fury vs Rogan Could Take Place as Early as September

By Mike Delaney, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY will reject the chance to face world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko this autumn.

Fury snatched the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles with a points win over Dereck Chisora at Wembley Arena on Saturday night.

IBF, WBA and WBO champion Klitschko, who hammered David Haye three weeks ago, has always said he would be keen to fight the winner.

But Fury, a Romany gypsy, is resisting the urge to face the Ukrainian.

Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy said: “When I am ready for Tyson to take on Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko, he will – but on our time schedule.

“The only two circumstances he will fight a Klitschko are as mandatory challenger, which means big purse bids or in a unification match.

“He is not that far from being a ­mandatory challenger, but we have got to get the right fights. Tyson is the best talent in world boxing and he is going to become the biggest ­sportsman in the world.”

Fury injured his left hand early on against Chisora and expects a ­Belfast date against former Commonwealth champion Martin Rogan in ­September if he recovers.

Fury, who claims to be 22 – a year younger than the record books ­report – said: “Amir Khan, Carl Froch and David Haye have all achieved a bit more than me. Hopefully I will ­emulate what they’ve done.”
