America is where I learned how to fight as an amateur in Las Vegas and 13 years later I’m finally going to make my US professional debut. I can’t wait to show the fans in the US that I’m the best middleweight in the world.”
Standing in Eubank’s way to make an impression on the US audience is Russian boxer Matt Korobov. Similar to Eubank, Korobov has only two professional losses and they came from Andy Lee by TKO and a UD loss to headliner of the event Jermall Charlo.

Charlo is a huge favourite here, so unless you are willing to risk large amounts it’s not worth the squeeze here. Bet $1200 on Charlo to make $100 profit here. Meanwhile we like Hogan’s odds here at 11/2, if you bet $100 you could make $550 in profit.
“Obviously, I want the big fights,” Charlo said. “I’m not looking past Dennis Hogan, but it’s time to unify. It’s time to prove myself. Me and my team will get together and make it happen. Those guys can’t hide behind their network forever.”
Charlo was the mandatory challenger for Alvarez’s WBC middleweight title. The Mexican icon instead moved up to light heavyweight, the division within which he’ll challenge WBO 175-pound champion Sergey Kovalev If Charlo can defeat Hogan and Canelo can get past the “Krusher” Kovalev on Saturday night surely they will line these two up for a fight.
Dennis Hogan has a record of (28-2-1, 7 KOs), he was on a six-fight winning streak until is controversial loss to boxing star Jaime Munguia. This will another huge test for Hogan, the odds are certainly against him but he can certainly test Charlo in the ring.
