Junior middleweight contender Tim Tsyzu and his team are currently in talks with Denis Hogan over a potential fight later in 2021.

Tsyzu has been able to rack some good wins recently and has been able to register his name as the next rising start in Australia and was hoping to land a shot at the WBO 154 pound Champion Patrick Teixeira before all hopes got lost as the champion got granted a visa to the US, with the move aiming towards a mandatory defence against Brian Castano.

Hogan on the other hand, was scheduled to face unified junior middleweight champion Julian Williams but that was cancelled after Williams returned a positive COVID 19 Result.

“I know I beat Tim and he believes he beats me so let’s prove who is the best super welterweight in Australia, if not then no problem,” Hogan stated. “The winner moves into a world title shot.”

The information was confined by Tsyzu’s manager Glenn Jennings confirmed that both parties were in discussions and that things were heading in a positive direction while, nurturing hopes of finalising the deal for the fight in the coming weeks.

“Nothing has been signed yet, but it’s very close to being made official,” Jennings said.

“It’s a fight we were keen on last year, but Dennis had a fight with Julian Williams lined up, so it didn’t happen. We’re obviously not too keen on travelling around the world too much in the current climate, so we’re more than happy to revisit the fight with Hogan and take on all the local fighters.”

Hogan has been away from the ring since his adventure at Middleweight, saw him get knocked out by WBC champion Jermall Charlo back in December 2019.

Hogan also revealed that he was preparing for an upcoming fight without revealing exactly the fighter he was preparing to fight.

“If you mention another fighter’s name be prepared for them to say yes,” Hogan said. “I said yes. Camp starts today.”
