Tyson Fury's promoter reveals that Martin Rogan has rejected the chance to fight the British and Commonwealth champion.

Martin Rogan has turned down the chance to go head to head with British and Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury.

Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy has revealed that the 40-year-old rejected the offer despite previously claiming that he wanted a match to be arranged.

"I can't believe that Martin has turned down the offer to fight Tyson," said Hennessy, according to Sky Sports News. "He 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.

"In the end Martin talked a good fight with Tyson but that was all, he just didn't want to fight him and that's a shame."

Meanwhile, Canadian fighter Neven Pajkic has also reportedly turned down the opportunity to meet Fury, 22, in the ring.
