Hennessy: It’s time to get down to ‘Unfinished Business’
By Jonny Stapleton
The laughing and joking is over. It is time to get down to ‘Unfinished Business’ according to Mick Hennessy the promoter of Saturday nights Odyssey Arena fight card.
Irish heavyweights Martin Rogan and Tyson Fury produced one of the most bizarre press conferences when they announced the eagerly anticipated clash over a month ago.
Fun, frolics, jokes and songs replaced the usual fight talk, predictions and venomous back and forths more common to boxing press conferences.
However, when the pair came face to face yesterday at the Drawing Offices at Titanic Belfast a number of days before they trade leather there was a significant change in atmosphere- and it didn’t go unnoticed by Hennessy.
The promoter also thinks if the Irish title does end up the line (read why BUI might not allow the two compete for the title herehttp://www.irish-boxing.com/2012/04/governing-body-dispute-threatens-to-take-irish-title-off-the-fury-rogan-agenda/) it will be the highest profile Irish title fight of all time.
“What can I say about this fight? The singing, the dancing, the stand-up comedy, the entertainment – it’s finished, it’s fight-time. We’re in the fight week and we’ve got one hell of a heavyweight battle for the Irish title. I don’t think there’s ever been a more high-profile, better fight for an Irish title that’s been on the world stage than this and it just so happens to be at heavyweight,” Hennessy said at Tuesdays press conference.
