Martin Rogan: If The Price is Right, I'll Fight Tyson Fury

By Terence Dooley

Martin Rogan has given Tyson Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy the green light to weigh in with a fight offer.  Rogan has a EU title tilt against Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev in the pipeline yet the 40-year-old former Commonwealth titlist has told the Belfast Telegraph that he would prefer to lock horns with new British and Commonwealth title boss Fury.

“I told Mick Hennessey that a fight between me and Tyson would sell out the Odyssey Arena in Belfast; it’s the type of fight the public is crying out for.  We could throw the Irish and Celtic titles in for good measure – it could be one of the greatest Irish heavyweight fights in history.  If the price was right, I would get in with Tyson instead of the EU bout,” revealed the 14-2 (7) brawler.

“The public would welcome the opportunity to see two Irish heavyweight fighters meet for the British, Commonwealth, Irish and Celtic titles all at once – it would be something special to be part of.  The promoters know this; so they should make it happen and I believe I would get the job done.”

Fury, 15-0 (10), won the British and Commonwealth crowns with a hard fought decision win over Derek ‘Del Boy’ Chisora on Saturday night in a fight which attracted over 3 million viewers for free-to-air TV network Channel 5, prompting hopes that boxing could find itself with a permanent home on terrestrial TV.

He just wants a easier fight than the EU fight against someone who's going to dominate him. What has he done to deserve a fight with either one but win prizefighter a while ago.

I would like to see this fight. Let’s be straight though, it’ll be sloppy, but two very proud men fighting is always worth watching. You’d have to pick Fury, but it wouldn’t be pretty. I know Tyson wants to fight…
