One Round Hogan, also known as "Jack Hogan," was a popular San Francisco area lightweight boxer during the city's four-round era of the early 1910s. (At this time San Francisco preferred four-rounders, as opposed to the ten-rounders staged in the Los Angeles area. [2] This is to be distinguished from California's state-wide Four-Round Era that started in late 1914.) He also had some success on the East Coast and even "won the hearts" of British fans. [3]

He was credited with scoring 18 consecutive first round knockouts for a number of years. However, this was never confirmed, and Young Otto became the official record holder for most consecutive first-round knockouts until that record was broken in 2006 by Edwin Valero.

In early 1929, Hogan sued a motion picture company for $75,000, claiming his reputation was ridiculed and harmed by a 1927 boxing movie that used his alias for the main character.

Hogan was later a referee in California. [4]
