Rogan was at ringside to see Fury beat Dereck Chisora last month, but according to Mick Hennessy, promoter for Fury, Rogan “was given all he wanted – one of the best purses he’s ever had, a chance to fight for both titles, and fighting in his home city. I can’t believe he’s turned down the offer.”
Fury’s alternative, Neven Pajkic of Canada, has also reportedly turned down a fight with Fury, who is finding it difficult to arrange his next fight as he seeks to make a name on the world stage, having reached the heights of the British and Commonwealth titles.
The points victory against Chisora last month was seen as a significant step up the ladder for Fury, with Wladimir Klitschko talking up the chances of a match against the Irishman, that Fury has muted in favour of some more substantial victories first.
