Fury should put all his effort into preparation not put downs says Rogie

Preparation and not Wladimir Klitschko put downs is what Tyson Fury should be concentrating on claims Belfast heavyweight Martin Rogan.

Quick witted ‘Big Rogie’, who is rumoured to be making a coming back, has proved a verbal sparring master over the years, but doesn’t believe his former foe needs to get ‘personal’ with the during media obligations ahead of his World title challenge.

Fury, who beat Rogan to claim the Irish title, was more reserved than usual at the official press conference to announce the massive fight, but did have some choice words for ‘Old Man’ Klitschko.

Speaking to the Belfast Newsletter Rogan said the challenger should focus on training rather than trading verbal blows.

“There is no need for all the stuff Fury said the other day. It was a personnel attack on Klitschko and he showed him no respect. He should just concentrate on his training and preparation and see Klitschko in the ring in Germany.

“I am looking forward to the fight.

“They are two real heavyweights and I think it will be a good fight for two to three rounds and then Klitschko will catch Fury and he will cover up.

“But it go either way and that’s what makes it exciting,” added Rogan.
