Hugo Hernán Garay (born 27 November 1980) is an Argentine professional boxer who fights at light heavyweight.

Career[edit]

Garay won the silver medal in Buenos Aires World Junior Championships in 1998. In the 1999 Pan American Games, he won the bronze medal in the men's light-heavyweight category.

Garay represented Argentina at the 2000 Summer Olympics. There he was stopped in the first round of the men's light-heavyweight division (– 81 kg) by Kazakhstan's Olzhas Orazaliev. He made his professional debut on 2001-07-14, defeating Abel Alejandro Rodríguez.

Garay was to fight champion Danny Green for the WBA Light Heavyweight Title on 27 April 2008 at Challenge Stadium in Perth, Australia. However, following the sudden retirement of Green in March of that year, Garay fought Yuri Barashian instead on 3 July 2008 in Buenos Aires for the vacant belt, winning via twelve-round unanimous decision.[1] On 22 November, he defeated Jürgen Brähmer by unanimous decision in his first title defense.[2]

Garay has a record of 34 wins (18 KO's) and 5 (1 KO) losses. His nickname is "Pigu".[3]
