Fogerty was born in Halifax, West Riding of Yorkshire.[2] Fogerty's boxing career saw him facing a number of opponents. He twice faced Paul Lister, with their first meeting in 1989 handing Fogerty his first and only loss in a 6-round decision. He repaid the favour with an 8th round knockout of Lister the next year. Additionally, Fogerty is the youngest player to play for the Isle of Man rugby team aged 15.

After ending his boxing career, Fogerty joined Halifax RLFC. He also played for Warrington, and won a Super League medal with St Helens.[3]

Beginning around the same time as his rugby league career, Fogerty began acting and has played supporting roles in several films such as Shooting Fish and Played, as well as the unlicensed boxer, Gorgeous George, in the Guy Ritchie crime caper Snatch. He played Mouse in Mean Machine and Raw in Greenfingers. He has also worked on soaps Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. In 2012 he joined Barrie Rutter's Northern Broadsides theatre company to play Costard in Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost.
