Tyson Fury: Martin Rogan is a Bum, I'll Fight David Price

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY has ­dismissed opponent Martin Rogan as a “bum” – and intends to fight many more like him!

Fury meets Rogan at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena tonight for the vacant Irish heavyweight title in a fight to be screened live on Channel 5.

And the unbeaten 6ft 9in fighter has taken inspiration from the legendary Joe Louis, who ­famously knocked out a string of hopeless challengers.

Each of those victims found their way into the ‘Bum of the Month’ club made famous by Louis.

Fury said: “I can go on a ‘Bum of the Month’ campaign just like him.

“Yes, Tyson Fury is starting his very own campaign, beginning with Martin Rogan!

“Every four or five weeks, I’ll be fighting a bum and keeping busy in the process. I’m not in a rush to fight for world titles just yet because I’m the new blood in the game.

“People mention names like David Price and ask me if I would like him. My answer is yes, no problem.

“But that fight hasn’t happened yet because the business side of things sometimes comes into play.”

Fury’s comments have angered his opponent.

Rogan said: “I have a feeling that he’s looking beyond and past me and that could be a bad idea.

“If he’s talking about fighting every four weeks, it could be a bad move because you never know what is going to happen.

“My eyes are firmly on what he has to offer and I’m prepared to die in the ring, to lose a limb in that ring. I’m totally, mentally and physically relaxed.

“I’m quite happy with the work that I’ve done in the gym. It’s in Belfast and I’m looking forward to it.”

Fury, though, insisted that he will be on top form when he climbs into the ring tonight.

He added: “I just can’t wait. I have locked myself away like never before to make sure that I am ready to do the business.

“I want to show the Irish people just how good I am and how much it means to me to be Irish ­champion.

“Wee Rogie is a good fighter but I just hope he has been training hard because he is going to need to be in tip-top condition.”

THE big Belfast fight night will be screened live on Channel 5 from 10pm.

I've had it with this ****ing guy, what a ****ing tool. The good thing is that he is a knockout waiting to happen.

Fury is a joke...if he ever rematched Chisora or faced Price, he would get knocked out...he is the next Julius Francis or Audley Harrison, just a domestic fight who will never be a world class fighter

Fury will soon become the dominant heavyweight in the world replacing the Klits.Fear the Fury as Hell is coming with him.

David Price-Tyson Fury could have happened and Fury had his shot. He chose to get the Irish title instead, and said Price wasn't important. David Price will beat Tyson Fury is this ever happens though.
