Belfast boxing heavyweight Martin Rogan has challenged world champion Tyson Fury’s dad to a punch up.

Former Commonwealth Champion and Prize Fighter winner Rogan hit out at John Fury after he confronted two weight world champion Carl Frampton.

Fury was challenged the north Belfast champion over his prediction that social media influencer and boxer Jake Paul would get the better of Tyson’s brother Tommy.

John Fury engaged in a heated argument with Carl after the former world champion said Jake Paul would beat his son Tommy.

Tommy was due to face Paul in December 2021, but pulled out of the highly anticipated bout due to a chest infection and broken rib.

Fury was irate that Frampton had backed Paul to beat Tommy in the fight which fell through late last year.

And now Rogan, who lost an Irish heavyweight title fight to Tyson in 2012 has rowed in behind Frampton.

In a social media post Rogan said it was time the "over 50s got it on" and he said once he beats John he’ll take on Tommy and then Tyson.

“You messing our Carl about, we back each other up here, I’ll fight you then Tommy and then Tyson.”

Speaking to TalkSPORT last November, Frampton said when discussing Tommy and Paul: 'To be honest, I don't really know much about them.

'I've seen Jake Paul, little highlights of him. I've seen Tommy Fury, I was actually working for BT for one of his fights as a pundit.

'I think that if you put a gun to my head, I think I fancy Jake Paul in that fight, if I'm being honest.'

Frampton's comments irritated Fury - who decided to confront the former world champions at Tyson's first press conference ahead of his fight with Dillian Whyte.

The beginning of Fury's encounter with Frampton was missed, but the cameras did catch Fury saying: 'You think Jake Paul's a boxer?'

To which Frampton replied saying: 'No, I don't think he's a boxer.'

Fury was then heard saying: 'Why do you think he can beat Tommy then? Answer the question now. You disappoint me, I looked up to you and I supported you.'

Frampton tried to diffuse the situation back stage by saying: 'I'm just trying to be honest John.'

However, that. angered Fury more. He hit back at Frampton saying: 'Honest? Honest saying a YouTuber could beat a Fury? Are you p***ed?'

The former world champion didn't take to kindly to Fury's accusation, replying: 'I'm not p***ed, I'm just trying to be honest.'

Fury then waved his hand and walked away from the conversation, saying: 'I don't wanna talk to you. Get your facts right or get off the job.'
