The Kildare light middleweight seemed to outbox and outfight fearsome WBO champion Jaime Munguia at the Arena Monterrey but was denied on the scorecards following twelve tense rounds.
Starting and finishing strong, Hogan boxed smart, picking his moments and landing the majority of clean shots throughout the twelve rounds of the DAZN-broadcast clash.
Alas, a majority decision was ruled against Hogan, the Brisbane-based Kilcullen fighter being edged out on scorecards of 115-113, 116-112, and 114-114.
There was much disagreement with the scores at the time and plenty of debate since.
However, only available via online pay-per-view in Ireland – and shown at 4:00am – relatively few actually saw the bout.
The fight in full has now been uploaded to the internet and you can watch below to make your own mind up.
