Undefeated WBO #1, IBF #3, WBC #11 light middleweight Tim Tszyu (18-0, 14 KOs) dominated and stopped WBC #10 Dennis Hogan (28-4-1, 7 KOs) in round five of a bout for the WBO global title on Wednesday night at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Tszyu stalked Hogan from the opening bell and progressively broke him down, especially to the body. In round five, Tszyu blasted Hogan to the canvas with an uppercut. Hogan beat the count, but after absorbing more punishment Hogan’s corner threw in the towel. Time was 2:29.
