Dennis Hogan [25(7)-1(0)-1] will make his return to the ring in a WBO eliminator at the Brisbane Convention Centre against veteran Japanese southpaw Yuki Nonaka [31(10)-8(1)-3].

Nonaka is undefeated since 2009 and in that time he has won the Japanese title and defended it six times. The fight will be 39 year old Nonaka’s first outside his native Japan.

It is crucial fight for Hogan who claimed the WBO Oriental light middleweight title in September against Samuel Colomban and then defended in November against Yao Yi Ma. Currently ranked #3 with the organisation, a win over #9 Nonaka will put him in world title contention.
