Tyson Fury beats Martin Rogan

MORECAMBE-BASED heavyweight Tyson Fury is still on course for a crack at the World Heavyweight Title thanks to an impressive televised win on Saturday night.

Channel 5 viewers saw Fury, 23, stop veteran Martin Rogan in five rounds to win the Irish Heavyweight Title.

Fury looked slim and trim at his lowest ever fighting weight of 17 stone 7 lbs and even employed an unfamiliar left-handed (southpaw) stance to overcome Rogan.
