Fury stops Rogan for Irish title

Former British and Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury added the Irish title to his belt haul last night when he stopped Belfast veteran Martin Rogan in the fifth round at the Odyssey Arena.

Fury, who boxed with a safety-first attitude, dropped Rogan twice using a southpaw stance and deconstructed the veteran with right jabs and left hooks en route to a fifth round technical knockout.

Eminem to star in boxing film

According to Hollywood news site Deadline, production house DreamWorks has signed the rights to a new boxing film called Southpaw, which is to feature rap star Eminem as the main character.

In his return to the big-screen, nearly nine years after his movie debut in 8 Mile, Eminem will play a fast-rising southpaw welterweight boxer who brawls his way to the title, only to see his world crash down around him due to tragedy.
