Well done to Dennis Hogan, I thought he'd get splattered, but he surprised us all. I thought he did enough to edge it and twitter seems to agree. He's obviously so much better than we previously thought.

Did he get jobbed on the cards? Jack Culcay got jobbed against Dervyschenko on PBC as well.

Yeah pretty much. In saying that it was more a 115-113, or 116-112 (if im feeling generous) type of decision for Hogan imo and its hard to beat a champ in his hometown when its close enough like that.

Fuckin disgrace so Ireland should have a new world champion that would have been huge. These currupt pricks are playing with peoples lives and livelihoods. Hope Hogan gets picked up by a big promoter now.

Would have been nice if Hogan brought the belt home with him alright, especially seeing as he gave such a good performance after no one ever really rated him that highly, even in Ireland.

No one gave him a chance either against Munguia, including me. I thought he'd getting fucking wrecked in six rounds to be honest. It'd be hypocritical for me to jump on the band wagon now, but Hogan definitely deserves a rematch in neutral territory or at the very least a crack at the vacant title if Munguia moves up to 160.

Just watched Benn win his eight round fight 80-71. Still not sure about his World Title future. I appreciate he as on;ly had 14 fights, but I will watch his progress with a great deal of interest. Regards Mervyn the Gee

Gadzahialiyev lost again, this kid had a big amateur career.

I remember Malikov being fortunate to get the decision over Kaneko. He's a decent fighter but nothing special, so it's not a great sign Gadzhialiyev lost to him. But that defeat was close like his other one (according to the cards), so I wouldn't write him off yet. Although three fights in five months, and he has went 0-2-1 -- perhaps his advisors would be better served slowing down his outings for now.
