Dennis Hogan returned to winning ways putting his WBA Interim World title defeat behind him in America on Friday night.
Hogan, fighting for the first time since his first career defeat inflicted by Jack Culcay in Germany late last year, out pointed Angel Herandez over six rounds to push his slate to 23-1-1 in Minnesota.
The Huricane flirted with stopping the veteran with a record that now reads 17-18-1, knocking out the American’s gum shield with heavy shots on three occasions, but had to settle for a points win.
It was the Kildare natives first fight under new coach Manuel Sagayo, pre bout he told Irish-boxing.com that he was hoping to put into practice some new learned skills and post bout he was certainly happy.
Speaking on social media he said:
“Won my 6 rounder very comfortably was going for the KO and knocked his mouthguard out 3 times but he was a wily veteran . Never felt better in there with our first test with my new coach”
