Isaac Dogboe has the biggest opportunity to turn the table around and redeem is image tonight when he comes face to face with Emanuel Navarrette in the match talked about rematch after he lost to the latter in December 2018. A win tonight will mean a redemption of his image as the real NEHO NEHO of the ring. A win will also give him his junior featherweight world title he lost.
Today May 11 is the day for the all-important rematch that will either square up the scores should victory smile at Dogboe. If it does, you can be sure a third fight will be organized between the two but if Dogboe fails to impress, then, that will be it.
He lost the first fight against Emanuel Navarrette in December 2018 when everyone was expecting him to demolish his opponent. Dogboe who has been able to end fights in KOs and become popular won several stoppage victories including those over Cesar Juarez and Jessie Magdaleno to win the enviable WBO title. He also stopped one Hidenori Otake in another bout in which he outclassed his opponent.
In 2018, Isaac Dogboe’s (20-1,14KO’s) defeat in the hands of Emanuel Navarrete (26-1, 22KO’s) shocked the boxing world. This was at a time that boxing fans in Ghana and across the world believed that Ghana has produced yet another Azuma Nelson power house in Isaac Dogboe, he failed to come to the party against Navarrette in 2018 at the title defense match held in the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. The loss was one big disappointment in his career as a professional boxer.
But tonight, Dogboe is going back into the ring a wounded lion to devour his opponent. The sports team at newsghana24.com after a careful analysis of the two boxers can attest that, this fight will go to the wire, pound for pound, blow for blow and you just cannot blink you eye to miss the action. Expect some big punches on the night.
A knock out is possible but unlikely as both boxers will be extra careful not to be outsmarted by the other. This rematch which will take place at Tucson Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona will not be an easy fight.
However, we believe, there is a slim win in sight for Dogboe if he will be at his best. He could stage the biggest comeback in recent times to finish off Emanuel Navarrette.
