Rogan versus Sexton III on the cards for 2016

Belfast heavyweight Martin Rogan told Irish-boxing.com earlier this year that he wanted a reprise with long time rival Sam Sexton.

‘Big Rogie’ was adamant he had unfinished business with the heavyweight who beat him in two Commonwealth title clashes.

The inaugural Prizefighter winner and Irish boxing character claimed sportsmanship cost him the first of the 2009 double header, before injury robbed him of revenge. Neither reverse sits well with the outspoken former Commonwealth champ and he called for third installment in the Autumn.

It seem’s the man also know as ‘The Entertainer’ and ‘The Iron Man’ might get his wish in 2016 as Team Sexton has been dropping hints about a possible third fight.

Sexton returned to action after 18 months out with a points win Kamil Sokolowski in September and the 31 year old’s trainer Graham Everett suggests his man could make it 3-0 in 2016.

“Rogan is now getting in the mix over in Ireland with Sean Turner so proves it is never over until it’s over,” said Everett.

“Martin is a warrior we know – it’s all about right place, right time, right fight. Maybe Rogan Sexton III is on the cards. If the money is right and it benefits us we will do it. He has done him twice, he can do him again, simple as that.”
