Default Rogan v Skelton is on

Quote:
Belfast boxer Martin Rogan is to fight Matt Skelton for the Commonwealth heavyweight title at the Birmingham NEC on Saturday 28 February.

Skelton's European title will not be up for grabs in next month's contest as his camp have not made it available.

The major bill is also set to feature bouts involving Amir Khan and Enzo Maccarinelli.

Rogan put his name in the frame by beating Audley Harrison at London's ExCel Arena at the start of December.

The 37-year-old cabbie from Belfast won the heavyweight Prizefighter tournament last year and is unbeaten in 11 professional bouts.
At 41, Skelton is four years his senior.

Not a good fight IMO.

Skelton needs a better level of opponent moving forward than Rogan.

Plus Enzo v Banks and Khan v TBA. Still not worth 15 quid though. Just seen that JMM v Diaz and Juarez v JOhn is on the same night. Now if Sky show that as well then it might be worth it.

I would have thought that Sky would bundle the UK and US bills together, they did last time. And Enzo's probably going to be the only competitive fight on the (televised) UK card, if the right Skelton turns up and the Khan team go conservative.

This could be a very good fight but I can not see Rogan winning this. Skelton needs to get an opponent that will enable him to get in the world title frame again. I doubt he will get that crack and at his age he has not got time to ***** about. Maybe Skelton knows his career is all about the money now and this could be a little earner for him.

Great chance for Skelton to show he is the best of his era. I'd still like to see him beat Harrison up after Harrison comes back. Skelton has done very well for himself. I'm very impressed with his career given how you would figure he would go.

I would like to see Skelton beat up Harrison badly....

But not if it costs him another world title chance.
