Dennis Hogan Returns To Brisbane’s Fortitude Stadium

Dennis 'Hurricane' Hogan will make his long awaited return to action next month at Brisbane’s Fortitude Stadium.

The Brisbane based light-middleweight suffered a serious injury in late 2012 which had the potential to threaten his vocation as a professional boxer. However, the twenty eight year old refused to wave the white flag on his boxing career and following a successful operation in Dublin he has now returned to full fitness. Hogan is now deep into preparation for what will be his first fight in the last nine months. Hogan spoke this week about the nature of his injury and the effect it had on him.

“It was a slipped disc in my back which had been causing pain in the nerves in my right arm. I was only punching with about 30% power in my right arm because of it, so I had to go ahead with the operation in the end. There was a very slight risk that if the operation went wrong I could be left paralysed down my right side, but thankfully everything went well and I’m ready for action again”.

It’s the first time since Dennis Hogan took up boxing as a boy that an injury has kept him out of action for such a long time, but he believes that it has only served to increase his appetite for success and says he will be raring to go when he takes on tough Kiwi Brad Milner in the ring on June 15.

“It’s not easy when you’re kept out of the ring like that but I’ve come back with even greater motivation. I’ve been sparring for the last four weeks, finding my eye, and my footwork is starting to click again. Milner will be a tough opponent for a comeback fight like this, but that’s what I want. I want to test myself and get right back on track”.

‘Hurricane’ Hogan is unbeaten in twelve professional fights to date and he has already earned himself quite a reputation in the Australian light-middleweight division. As result, the Queensland champion’s fights are attracting a lot of coverage, and next month’s bout will be streamed live around the world on www.liveboxing.com.au

The former Irish international amateur boxer will be hoping to pick up from where he left off in 2012 by claiming another victory and, assuming he does negotiate his way past Milner next month, it is anticipated that a major title fight could be just around the corner for Dennis Hogan.

Hogan trains out of the Fortitude Boxing Gym in Brisbane under the watchful eye of his trainer Steve Deller.
