Photos: Tyson Fury and Martin Rogan Go Face To Face

London - Last Saturday night promoter Mick Hennessy announced live on Channel 5 in front of millions of viewers “I’m absolutely proud and delighted to say that we have got a massive fight at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on April 14th, Tyson Fury in a long awaited fight versus Martin Rogan.”

Tyson Fury vs. Martin Rogan will be shown live on Channel 5.

Both fighters were in the ring for the announcement and when Martin Rogan was asked by Channel 5’s Mark Pougatch  “How much are you looking forward to this fight in Ireland on April 14th?”

Martin Rogan responded  “Very much, very long anticipated fight, respectfully Tyson’s world number 6 and I’m getting a great opportunity thanks to Mick Hennessy, Mickey Hughes and Tyson Fury, lot’s have gone on with the politics in boxing obviously with the purse offers, but some of the phrases that were used against Tyson calling him a chicken and stuff like that I find very disrespectful because any man who steps in the ring is far from a chicken, and as I said, I respect the chance that I've been given to step in the ring.

"I’m a great heavyweight,  I’ve proved that by beating Matt Skelton, the undefeated and un-knocked out guy, I beat Audley Harrison,  so I got the pedigree to do the business on the 14 April and that’s what I intend to do.”

“Why is it Martin next for you Tyson, why is it Martin Rogan?”” ask Mark Pougatch.

Tyson Fury Said; “Well we sat down and it’s been a long decision, the fight has been off and on two or three times and it was suppose to happen last year when I fought at the Kings Hall and like you said before it’s politics that got in the way of the boxing match and that’s what it’s not about. It’s about going in there given the fans a great fight and I know Martin Rogan, I’ve grew up my full career watching him so I’ve nothing but respect for the man.

"I was watching the fights when he beat Matt Skelton and Audley Harrison and I know he is coming firing with both hands to take what I’ve got away but as he said I’m number 6 in the world and I’m working my way to a world title shot and I'm hoping I’m going to get there.”

Mark Pougatch asked Tyson “So what is your prediction for the fight on the April 14 with Martin Rogan?”

Tyson Fury answered “All I can say in prediction is this is going to be a great fight, there is going to be plenty of action and Martin Rogan always comes to fight as does Tyson Fury.

“And you are going to see two true warriors in the ring come April 14, in a fighting country as well.”

Mark Pougatch then asked Martin Rogan “A prediction from your point of view?”

Big Rogie responded “I don’t make predictions, Tyson makes predictions”

He then turned to Tyson and asked “Tyson, what round am I going to knock you out in?”

Tyson jokingly responded “The first, 10 seconds”

Martin Rogan added “Listen everybody get your arse in to gear and get to Belfast and all you Belfast people come and watch a real good fight.”

Funny how he couldn't fight Price becuase he was going for a world title, yet he could fight Rogan. I hope he re-matches Chisora and loses that 0.

[QUOTE=tripper;11817856]How on earth does chisora get a title shot and the pikey that beat him get left to beat up an old taxi driver. Seems a bit daft.[/QUOTE] This. Price to pay for ducking Price, it seems.

Still annoyed as hell that he ducked Price but Fury is always in entertaining fights & this should be entertaining at the very least.

Wow this is a massive fight im really glad Fury shat it from David Pirce now, perhaps if he gets past Rogan he could move on to Matt Skelton or Danny Williams. He has a great future ahead of him…
