WBO junior middleweight world champion Jaime Munguia (33-0, 26 KOs) scored a close twelve round majority decision over mandatory challenger Dennis “Hurricane” Hogan (28-2-1, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
Munguia was the aggressor, but Hogan was very agile in avoiding and countering the stalking champion’s big punches. Scores were 115-113, 116-112, 114-114. Munguia was a 50:1 favorite entering the fight, which was his fourth successful defense.

“I clearly won the fight,” said the 22-year-old Munguia afterward. “I was always attacking and connected with the harder shots, but if he wants the rematch, we’ll give it to him and even in Australia!”
