Dennis Hogan Hopes To Face Julian Williams in Early 2021

Dennis Hogan is staying patient for his next ring return.

Hogan was being positioned to face former junior middleweight champion Julian Williams on December 26th, with FOX televising the card.

While the fight had never been officially announced, it was pushed back to early next year after Williams tested positive for COVID-19.


Hogan and his handlers are hoping the fight will take place late January or early February.

“William’s sparring partner tested positive for the virus three days ago, so he had to go and get tested . That came back positive so as of now the fight is off,” Paul Keegan of DDP Sports, who promote Hogan, told

“[Hogan's manager] Peter Kahn is now working with PBC to get Dennis the best possible outcome. PBC have been great with Dennis and DDP. We have a good working relationship and both fighters want the fight, so it’s very likely to be rescheduled.

“The way it works over there is, Williams will have to come through two negative tests before he can return to camp. With that in mind you're talking about late January or early February.”

As recently reported, Williams parted ways with longtime trainer Stephen "Breadman" Edwards and is now being trained by SugarHill Steward.

Hogan has been training with retired fighter Wayne McCullough in Las Vegas.

To avoid wasting a training camp, he's willing to take a stay-busy fight on a PBC undercard.

“Dennis and Wayne have gelled well together and have had a great camp. They are eager for Dennis to get out. Peter (Kahn) has informed PBC and they have been great about it. They are willing to put him on a show, but it all comes down to TV," Keegan said.

“It would be good for Dennis to get out with Wayne, a fight would do no harm. Dennis could then get a short break at home and go back into camp to prepare for a world title eliminator.”

[QUOTE=Fighter78;20925197]I think the proper headline here is "Dennis Hogan hopes to be knocked out in early 2021 by Julian Williams"[/QUOTE] Doubtful. He arguably beat Munguia and is a crafty little mover who's only been stopped recently by Jermall Charlo. Gotta…

[QUOTE=Satir;20925115]Williams was considered as top 2-3 JMW a year ago and is best Charlos win at 154, today he's a trash lol[/QUOTE] I wouldn’t say he’s trash. He’s just been cursed with a weak chin. Hopefully he can improve tenfold…
