Sheehan: Big Sexy is better with his mouth than hands-he wouldn’t last four rounds

‘It”s only banter’ Con Sheehan says of his twitter back and forth with ‘Big Sexy’ Sean Turner sounding like a modern day footballer in the process.

‘Bants’ aside, however, you feel their is some weight behind the verbal jabs both big men are throwing at present.

Speaking to recently Sheehan, who will be trained by Virgil Hunter and based in San Francisco, told Turner, he is in a league of his own when it comes to Irish heavyweigths.

He also suggested if the good friends were to fight ‘Big Sexy’ wouldn’t reach the sixth round.

“Turner is a great boxer and even better with his mouth,” Sheehan told

“We are good mates, most of the slagging is banter, but as far as best heavyweigths in Ireland I believe I’m in a league of my own.

“A fight with Turner would be big, but it doesn’t excite me because if it was anything more than a four rounder I would stop Turner. He knows it too, but hopefully we will fight down the line. I wish him all the best in his career the man is a gentleman and I have huge respect or him.”
