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."

The live gate for Pacquiao vs. Bradley II came to almost $8 million, so with Pacquiao guaranteed $20 million and Bradley $6 million it gives a picture of just how much money TV puts into the pot. I am surprised there is not a market in 'idols of the gods of TV' as there's a lot of big time fighters who should be worshipping at the entertainment temple that makes them so rich.

Crag Whyatt v Ben Moorish, Camden Centre, 11th April

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
