Tyson Fury has issued an immediate response to claims by former opponent Martin Rogan that taking a potential British super-fight with David Haye would bring about his first defeat as a professional.
Rogan, 42, stated to the Belfast Newsletter today that Haye would ‘destroy Fury’ early on – leaving the latter to challenge the ex-Prizefighter champion to face his now 6-0 cousin Hughie in the near future.
“Martin seems to have no problems talking, but doesn’t back anything up in the ring,” Fury told World Boxing News.
“My cousin Hughie would play with ‘Little Rogie’ before taking him out, so let’s see if he takes up the challenge as I have no doubts that he would get knocked out by another Fury!”
18 year-old Hughie recently overcame Tomas Mrazek in six rounds to keep up his busy and successful beginnings in the paid ranks, with ‘Fists of Fury’ lined up to battle Rogan-target Darren Corbett in Dundalk on July 12.
