Martin Rogan: I want Chisora, Sexton and Corbett

Belfast heavyweight Martin Rogan (16-4) has drawn up a hit list of opponents and plans to return to the ring soon.

Rogan has been ticking over, and has added a 'bit of' a gym onto the side of his house. He said: "I want to face Sam Sexton again, I want to fight Dereck Chisora and I want to knock-out Darren Corbett."

“At this moment in time I am ranked six in Britain and I am ranked 44 in the World. I will fight anyone and I want a shot at the British and Commonwealth titles. They seem to be vacant at the minute and I want to get my hands on them.”

Commenting on the rumours surrounding a match between David Haye and Tyson Fury, who stopped Rogan in the fifth round when the pair met in May last year, the former Commonwealth champion believes there will be a clear cut winner.

Rogan said: “I think Haye will destroy him. David will not be scared of Tyson, and if I was Tyson I would be wary of Haye. He is a great fighter, he’s dedicated and he can bang."

“Haye, Fury and Vitali Klitschko all have fought Chisora. Haye put him to sleep while Fury and Wladimir could not stop Chisora."

While Rogan respects Fury for wanting to fight Haye, he believes the Lancaster fighter should refrain from verbally abusing others:

“Some of the things he posts on Twitter are just awful and someone in his camp should be responsible and tell him what way to behave. I know Tyson. He has a good heart and is a nice guy, but he should watch what he says about people."


Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
