'You've ruined the kid' - Rogan and Hennessy clash over Tyson Fury fight

The boxer criticised the promoter’s treatment of Fury following the Irish heavyweight title fight in Belfast.

A VERBAL SPAT took place on Saturday following the Irish heavyweight title fight in Belfast.

Martin Rogan and Tyson Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy were involved in a furious row, with Rogan telling Hennessy: “You’ve ruined the kid.”

Essentially, Rogan was not happy that he was given a new contract for a 12-round title fight at the weigh-in, as Irish title fights normally take place over ten rounds.
