Fury vs Rogan Results: Tyson Fury Stops Rogan in Five on Body Shot

Tyson Fury won as expected in Belfast, but did surprise by fighting southpaw.

Tyson Fury threw a curveball this afternoon in Belfast, fighting left-handed for the first time, and had his struggles early with veteran Martin Rogan. But in the end, the power of the 6'9" Fury was too big for the 40-year-old battler, and Fury stopped Rogan in the fifth round of an interesting fight.

Fury (18-0, 13 KO) dropped the first two rounds as he seemed overly tentative, with the aggression of Rogan (14-3, 7 KO) carrying the early action. But in the third round, Fury dropped Rogan with a long left hand. Rogan popped back up to his feet and survived the round, but that was the turning point, and it didn't really get better for the man affectionately known as "Rogie."

The fourth round saw Rogan continue to battle, and come out about even with Fury, but Fury at that point knew he could hurt the older man, so in the fifth, the hunt was on. Fury's body shots added up, and put Rogan on the canvas. Rogan fought the pain and bravely made it to his feet, but as the fight had started to get a little ugly in the round, his corner came into the ring and put an end to the fight, much to Rogan's dismay.

It's certainly not a win that prepares Fury for world level, but it keeps the hype train moving at the very least. It'll be interesting to see if he stays southpaw going forward. There aren't many southpaw heavyweights, so if he can get better in the stance, it could eventually cause problems for opponents.
