He became Việt Nam's first WBA Asia East Super Middleweight champion after defeating Korean rival Lee Gyu-hyun in 2019.
On February 2, 2020, he knocked out Yuttana Wongda of Thailand to lift the WBA Asia belt.
In his most recent outing, Hoàng floored Indonesian Robert Kopa in the 'LEAD: The Beginning' event last October.
Last month, he cruised to a gold medal at the ninth National Sports Games, which he declared his last amateur boxing competition. VNS
