Dennis Hogan (28 – 1 – 1,7kOs) has never been stopped and his lone loss came via a 12-round decision to Germany’s Jack Cuclay in their Dec. ’15 Wilhelmsburg, Germany. The fight was already in play, as Hogan was the mandatory to Munguia. Hogan has since won six straight fights to earn this title opportunity.
The fight was delayed and assumed temporarily impossible because of the inability to reach an agreement for the fight but the WBO ordered a 30 day negotiation period which hastened and made the fight possible in time before the given period.
Jamie Munguia is viewed as favorite by the Bookmarkers, but will be in for a difficult fight against Australia’s Hogan.
