Martin Rogan dares Tyson Fury to try and retire him
Martin Rogan has offered Tyson Fury the chance to retire the big heavyweight and wants to fight the Manchester based giant in the New Year.
The Irish heavyweight have been trading verbal blows since the Iron Man turned down the chance the fight the British and Commonwealth champion back in November.
However just when it looked the on going Rogan/Fury saga had come to a head the Belfast star has expressed a desire to fight his 17 year junior.
The 40 year old, who had to cancel a bout with Matt Skelton due to a leg injury, wants to challenge the Manchester native for his British and Commonwealth titles as well as the Irish title in Belfast.
The Belfast cabbie is also willing to his career on the line and says he will retire if he suffers defeat via the fists of Fury.
“Why doesn’t Tyson Fury come over here at the beginning of the year and fight me at the Odyssey Arena. I am the best heavyweight in Ireland, so let us fight for the Irish, British and Commonwealth titles in Belfast,“ said Rogan.
“I am up for that and if he beats me I will retire and they can take all the praise. If they believe he can fight the Klitschko brothers, he should be able to walk through me. I want the fight and it is a contest the fans would love to see. So let’s do it,”
Rogan was an interested TV spectator as Fury successfully defended his Commonwealth crown against Nevan Pajkic and wasn’t suitably impressed.
Fury, who has flirted with the canvas more than once in his career, finally met it in round two, but climbed off the canvas to maintain his unbeaten status.
“It was a terrible fight and Fury did not look good in there. They are talking about him fighting Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko. Are they serious?” added Rogan.
Fury has repeatedly said Rogan had and wasted his chance to fight him and the fact he is has been linked to David Price, Audley Harrison and an American debut in March suggests he is telling the truth.
