MARTIN Rogan claims he will blast his way to 100k when he competes in the Super 8 Heavyweight Boxing Tournament, to be held on 4 June 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Rogan and Michael Sprott are the two confirmed names in the tournament akin to the UK “Prizefigher”. The big difference this time is the prize money on offer with over £100,000 to the winner and £50,000 to the runner up and having won the inaugural Prizefighter and making the semi finals when entering for a second time ‘The Entertainer’ is confident he can lift another knock out tournament trophy.
The former Commonwealth champion enters the tournament on the back of a horrific knockout suffered in Germany, but whilst his jaw was shattered by Erkan Teper his confidence certainly wasn’t.
Indeed the 42 year old claims he is going to blast his way to the substantial prize fund.
“I’ve done it before and I’m going to do it again, this time in a more spectacular fashion! I will be knocking out anyone who they put in front of me,” Rogan said.
“I’ve a lot of family down in New Zealand, they have promised me when I win the Super 8 they will all be flying the flag of Ireland on their front door and celebrate me as their new president.”
Speaking about the tournament Sprott, also a winner of Pirzefighter, said,
“After England beat the All Blacks I will be Knocking out whatever the Kiwis and Aussies have left to offer and it’s going to be a sorry week down under but triumphant for the English”
