“I will be moving back to my ideal weight of super welterweight for my next fight in America,” Hogan explained online.
Hogan (28-3-1, 7 KO) had not lost since an unsuccessful 2015 title fight against Jack Culcay when he got the call to face Jaime Munguia for the latter’s WBO super welterweight belt. Though a massive underdog, he appeared to have gotten the better of the young slugger after 12 rounds, only to walk away with a majority decision loss. As a consolation prize, he received a crack at Jermall Charlo’s WBC belt six pounds north, which went a bit worse.
He is presently unranked at 154 pounds after that little excursion, though a tune-up win or two could very easily get him at least a spot in the WBO top 15. Anyone got a compelling opponent for his return to the U.S. of A.?
