Dennis Hogan to spar Daniel Geale in prep for Steve Moxon grudge match

IBF number 14 ranked light-middleweight contender Dennis Hogan is set to face Steve Moxon on July 6 as the Irish-born Aussie looks to continue his rise on the back of some impressive performances.

Hogan, 29, has put together a standout 19-fight undefeated record since turning pro in 2011 and having been called out by the 26 year-old former Kickboxer, had no hesitation in accepting Moxon’s challenge.

Queensland-native Moxon is 5-0 with four knockouts since switching codes three-years ago and has already defeated highly-ranked contender Rohan Murdock when both were in the early stages of their career. 

In preparation for next month’s bout at Grand Star Receptions in Victoria, ‘The Hurricane’ has also took up an invitation to be the main sparring partner for ex-world middleweight champion Daniel Geale as his compatriot puts in the work for a massive clash with Gennady Golovkin on July 26 in New York.

“I love working and training with Daniel and it fills me with great confidence that he specifically asked to spar with me,” Hogan told World Boxing News.

“My last week with Daniel was a great experience for me, but also cemented my thinking that I belong in the same company as the Geale’s of this world. Daniel is also great with passing on feedback and tips on what improvements I should be looking at going forward.”
