Williams does NOT lose belt, Sexton/Rogan to fight him


Recommended Posts

The winner of Sam Sexton's Commonwealth heavyweight title fight with Martin Rogan will be in line for a crack at the British title.


The pair meet in Belfast on November 6 at the Odyssey Arena in a highly-anticipated rematch.


And the British Boxing Board of Control has announced that whoever emerges victorious will be mandatory challenger for the British title.


It was widely expected that the title would become vacant following champion Danny Williams' loss in the recent Prizefighter tournament.


But there is no indication that Williams will retire despite the set back, and the Board have decided not to strip him.


However, given his recent form, both Sexton and Rogan will be confident of beating him.


Despite being a former world title challenger and a long-term British champion, Williams appears to be well and truly on the slide.


Sexton and Rogan go at it again on November 6 following their controversial first fight.


Norfolk's Sexton won it in the eighth round when he forced Rogan to retire with a badly swollen eye, but had been out on his feet earlier in the session.

I'd expect that Rogan has the style to beat Danny and he would probably take him out in the first few rounds with his mauler approach...but Sexton is a more considered boxer and he takes his time a little more and is more than willing to fight on the back foot and this would suit Danny!!


I think the slower pace of the fight would suit him to a comfortable Victory!
