Skelton to face Rogan!

Heavyweight Matt Skelton (22-2, 19 KOs) will defend his Commonwealth title on February 28 at the NIA, Birmingham, against Irishman Martin Rogan (11-0, 5 KOs).  Skelton, 41, is aiming for a second world title opportunity after losing to Ruslan Chagaev on points in Germany last year in a challenge for the WBA title. He will begin as favorite against undefeated Rogan, but will be wary of the Irishman following his shock defeat of Audley Harrison in December. This will be Skelton’s 14th championship fight, and he has now won the English, British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight titles. He captured that latter belt in December when he forced Paolo Vidoz to quit in Milan in December in a victory that deserved more publicity than it received. “Rogan is a dangerous fighter and I was impressed by the way in which he dug deep against Harrison,” said Skelton. “Anyone with an undefeated record is a threat because they don’t know how to lose. But I believe I will win this fight.”
