Isaac Dogboe beats Avalos in comeback fight

1 min read

Former WBO Super Bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe bounced back in grand style as he stopped Mexican-American boxer in Round 8.

The Ghanaian who has not fought since his last defeat to Emanuel Navarette in 2019 was too sharp for his Mexican-American opponent at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA.

Dogboe was in dominant fashion as he won every round in the featherweight bout before stopping Chris Avalos with a combination of punches in Round 8, which was the last round.

It was open exchanges in the first two rounds but the Ghanaian proved to be the sharper puncher afterwards, throwing consistent jabs at the Mexican-American.

The Royal Storm was, however, deducted points in Round 5 by referee Russell Mora after he landed a low blow on Avalos.

Unfazed by this, Dogboe scaled up his punches, bruising the face of his opponent.

Avalos’s punch output dropped significantly with each round and with a few minutes to the end, he received a Dogboe left hook, which dazed him.

Referee Mora, then, stopped the fight at 2:25.

Ahead of the fight, Paul Dogboe, father and former trainer of Isaac Dogboe predicted the former WBO Super Bantamweight champion will knock out his opponent and it came to pass.

It seems the father despite not training his son knows too well the qualities Issac Dogboe possess. 

Isaac Dogboe went into the July 21 bout with trainer by Barry Hunter.
