Jaime Munguia and team assured Dennis Hogan of title shot amid Canelo talks

Dennis Hogan may have to wait a while for another shot at the WBO light middleweight title with Jaime Munguia linked to bouts with both Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

Munguia defeated Hogan in a controversial majority decision win with the Kildare native and his team then appealing against the judges' decision to get the fight re-scored.

Five independent judges appointed by the WBO re-scored the contest a draw. One judge gave Munguia the win, one official scored the contest for Hogan while the other three judges scored the contest a draw.

However, the WBO ruled that on the independent judges' scorecards Munguia won seven rounds compared to five for Hogan.

The organisation used a weighed scoring system where account is taken on how many of the judges favoured a specific boxer in a specific round. Essentially, three of the five judges have to agree to determine which fighter won the round.

Hogan and his team lost their appeal but released a video where it shows the fighter, coaches and promoters all assuring the Irish man and his camp that there would be a rematch.

It now appears that Munguia could fight Golovkin if he does not reach an agreement with Canelo Alvarez.

Hogan could get a title shot if Munguia moves up in weight and relinquishes his title at light middleweight with Hogan having a strong case for a shot at the vacant title.
