HE was crowned king of Queensland, middleweight Wizard of Oz before becoming inaugural WBA Oceania light middleweight champion, but now Dennis Hogan is ready to conquer the World.
The 29 year old has moved his way up the ranks and through the belts and has moved into the top 15 of both the WBA and IBF rankings. The Kildare native hopes to fight on a big card Stateside next and claims now its time to move to World level.
Speaking not too long after his 19 career win over Steve Moxon Hogan said,
“It was a massive win for me. It’s the next big step in my career and I’m glad to get the title which is a big step for me,” hold told World Boxing News.
“I have now moved from State, National and onto Continental titles so I am looking forward to adding World level to the list now.”
‘The Hurricane’ might be keen to move to World level and try his glove hand Stateside, but he is still keen for an Irish Homecoming.
“For the immediate future I want to get this fight in the States and I want also want to fight in Ireland in a homecoming fight at some stage. The support I get in Ireland is really unbelievable and hard to believe sometimes as I haven’t fought over there as a pro yet. I would love to walk out to a passionate Irish crowd on home soil, it would be a dream come true from me.
“The Irish fans are very smart about the sport and it is a shame they don’t get more shows over there. I can see things might be changing and they are looking to put on some big shows, so hopefully I can be a part of that, who knows?”
