Hypothesis/defended statement

Hi everyone,

I have a burning question :) It concerns a doctoral dissertation. As you all know, a dissertation must have a statement which is defended in the paper. For instance, boys love sports much more than girls do :D. And in the dissertation this statement is confirmed or not confirmed. So, my question is the following: can one call this assumption/statement defended statement. Or is it hypothesis and there are no other ways of calling it?

I'll be grateful for any answers!
