Isaac Dogboe is a man who must be feeling he can take anyone in the boxing world at this moment as he must be high on confidence following his victory over Christopher Diaz and yet strangely, he has been advised to overcome the temptation of fight WBO featherweight champion, Emmanuel Navarrete, for the third time.
This is coming from boxing ring official, Ataa Eddie Pappoe, who is of the believe that Isaac Dogboe who is on three consecutive victories is simply not yet ready to face of with the experienced Mexican boxer.
Isaac Dogboe suffered defeat to the Mexican pugilist in 2018, losing his WBO super bantamweight title to Emmanuel Navarrete following what was described by many as a one sided bout in which he was dominated by the Mexican from start to finish and his boxing career suffered a nose dive as a result of the defeat.
The defeat was the Ghanaian boxer’s first professional defeat after he lost by an unanimous decision to Emmanuel Navarrete and immediately sought a rematch in May 2018 but the outcome was the same or even worse as he failed to complete the 12 rounds as he was a TKO defeat.
He has since recovered from those setbacks and re-established himself going on three consecutive wins in which he defeated Chris Avalos in July 2020 and his latest victim being Puerto Rican boxer Christopher Diaz by majority decision.
And whiles some are saying Isacc Dogboe is ready to give himself another shot at Emmanuel Navarrete, Atta Eddie Pappoe’s advise to him is to avoid the divisions champion for the time being.
“The floodgates are wide open, he is not a novice and the offers will start coming; he only has to avoid Navarrete in that new weight class,” the ring official told the Graphic Sports.
“He has fought for such a long time at the bantamweight division and has only three fights in the featherweight. He must fight more to gain the needed experience.”
He was full of praise for Dogboe’s show of courage and resilience after losing his title, adding that “he could have quit, but he kept fighting.”
