Dennis Hogan maintained his unbeaten start to professional boxing life with a four round unanimous points decision over Tass Tsitsiras in Australia on Friday night.
The fighter, who was fighting at super middleweight for the first time, came out of the blocks quick, fighting behind an impressive jab.
The Kildare native dropped his opponent twice in the opening round as Tsitiras succumbed to relentless Hogan pressure.
Tsitsiras managed to make it through the remaining 3 rounds with all 3 judges scoring the bout 40-34 in favour of the Irish fighter.
Another Irish fighter to register victory on the “War Has Been Declared Show” was Newry’s Paddy Murphy.
The four round Welterweight bout was a rough and tumble affair. Murphy was picked up and thrown to the ground during a clinch early on, but wasn’t to be bullied. Murphy recovered and seemed to legitimately send Shaw to the canvas with right hand only for the referee to rule the fighter who took the bout at just a day‘s notice slip.
Regardless Murphy went on to improve his record to 2-0 and is scheduled to fight again at the end of October in Hervey Bay.
