Hogan’s fight upgraded to a NABA title fight

In a major coup for Australian boxing, FightCard Promotions is happy to announce that the much anticipated clash between Dennis Hogan and Steve Moxon will be fought for the NABA light middleweight title.

As the North American regional body of the WBA, the title is ordinarily based in the USA and Mexico, but identifying the importance of this bout on a world level, the NABA and WBA have approved the sanction.

In the biggest fights of their boxing career, Irish sensation Dennis Hogan and Australian combat sports icon Steve Moxon will both put their unbeaten records on the line. Sunday 6th July is the date, put the date in your diary and don’t miss out.

Recently named world #14 by the IBF, Hogan is no stranger to challenges and is relishing the challenge.

“At every stage throughout my career I’ve been tested and challenged, I’ve stepped up to them all and this will be the same” Hogan said. “I’m proud and excited to have been ranked by the IBF and its another step towards my goal of delivering a world title for my army of supporters. Moxon now stands in the way of that and I’m looking forward to July 6th. Having a top quality opponent for July was always our aim and I’m over the moon that my team have delivered that. Steve Moxon has a big reputation in Australia and is a household name worldwide. He recently said that he believed he was tougher than I was and would beat me given the chance, I’m ready to answer that how I know best”

The fight takes place on Sunday 6th July at Grand Star Receptions in Altona North. With a card already featuring two other title fights, the afternoon show will be an all action affair. Manager and promoter from FightCard Promotions, Adam Wilcock was over-the-moon with the announcement.

“This is a fight and a promotion that the whole country wants to see. Its a fight that was melting down social media some weeks ago and a fight that we’ve worked hard to confirm. Dennis will fight anyone and that’s certainly a mindset shared with Steve Moxon. Two tough boys and this will be a massive fight. The show is already brimming with talent, three titles, and some real young talent on debut. On a personal level, I cant wait, its our biggest show yet.”
