On Sunday, 24th of July, 2022, during the Grand Casino Hinckley in Minnesota in the USA, Isaac Dogboe, a 27-year-old Ghanaian Boxer,  also known as “the Royal Storm” defeated America’s Boxer, Joet Gonzalez and secured a shot at the world title in the Featherweight division. Dogboe is also the former junior Featherweight titlist. The contest was a close one as the winner couldn’t be obviously projected after 10 rounds.

Altogether, making 2 against 1. This thus gives Isaac Dogboe the opportunity to win another World title as he could now face the WBC title holder known as Rey Vargas.

Additionally, during the contest, it was indicated that Dogboe began very well but as the bout began to develop, Gonzalez strongly came on and threw some punches which were quite dangerous that Dogboe had to retreat to the ropes.

Nonetheless, Dogboe took shots and came with new hits, ad won some of the crucial rounds, even when Gonzalez was still keeping up his work rate. By the eighth round, Gonzalez had begun to line up clear right crosses.
