† Appearances (Goals).
He was raised through the ranks at his hometown team Turbina Cërrik before joining the youth team of Dinamo Tirana in 2004. He was loaned back out to Turbina Cërrik for the 2005-06 campaign, where he played in the Albanian First Division. He returned the following season and joined the first team at Dinamo as Ilion Lika understudy. He made his top flight debut with Dinamo on 10 March 2007 in a home game against KF Elbasani. He featured in 11 league games between March and the end of the season due to first choice keeper Lika being sidelined with injury.
The following season he became second choice to Elvis Kotorri following the departure of Ilion Lika, and he made 2 league appearances as Dinamo were crowned Albanian Superliga champions for the first time since 2002. During the first half of the 2008-09 season he only made one league and one cup appearance before being loaned out to fellow Superliga side Apolonia Fier in January for the remainder of the season. He made 8 appearances while on loan at Apolonia Fier and kept 3 clean sheets, helping the team avoid the relegation play off places by a single point.
He returned to his parent club Dinamo ahead of the 2009-10 season and made 6 league appearances as he won his second Superliga title with Dinamo. The following season he competed with Albanian international Isli Hidi for the first choice spot in the team, and following Hidi's departure to Olympiakos Nicosia in January 2011 he became Dinamo's first choice keeper for the first time and eventually featured in 24 league games as Dinamo narrowly avoided relegation after beating Besëlidhja Lezhë in the relegation play off.
Hoxha left Dinamo Tirana in the summer transfer window of 2011 and joined another Superliga side Kastrioti Krujë, where he competed with Argjent Halili for the starting lineup, ultimately losing out as he only made 6 league appearances, and was used mainly in the Albanian Cup, where he featured 10 times. He left the club at the end of the season along with Halili, and was in talks with FK Kukësi regarding a possible transfer, but a move never materialised as an agreement could not be reached.
He joined Besa Kavajë ahead of the 2012-13 campaign and was immediately made the first choice goalkeeper ahead of Ibrahim Bejte. Throughout the season Hoxha made 23 league and 2 cup appearances, helping Besa to a 9th place finish, avoiding the relegation play off places.
Hoxha played three matches for the youth's Albania national under-19 football team in the 2006 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualification - Group 9 between 23-27 October 2005.
