Hogan: Tszyu will be world champ

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBC #8 middleweight Dennis Hogan (28-3-1, 7 KOs) predicts WBO #2, IBF #3 light middleweight Tim Tszyu (17-0, 13 KOs) will be world champion…but only after he defeats him when they clash on March 31.

“Tim is building well into an all-rounded pro and I believe he will go on to be a world champion, but that’s well down the line,” Hogan told Irish-boxing.com. “He has more maturity to gain and only after he’s been in with more experienced fighters like myself will gain it.”

Hogan added, “I still believe I am the best and Tim has the ranking for now so it’s a massive fight. It doesn’t get bigger to be fair. This will lead to another world title and that’s the reason I want it.”

  • Hogan is just an excellent fight for Tszyu right now. He has a name, he isn’t much of a puncher and he was stopped in his last fight. I think he’ll give Tszyu an opportunity to look very good and get a name on his record – and that’s what I expect to happen. Tszyu in 6.

  • Tszyu vs. Hogan could be similar to Hogan vs. Munguia. I don’t expect Tszyu be able to walk through Hogan the same way Jermall Charlo did, but it will be a good test for Tim face a skilled fighter like Hogan. Well, at least he has a pulse

  • Yes, I do think Tszyu will be world champ with a belt or two! However, a unified champ in one division is still much a work in progress at this point. The future remains to be seen.
