Ghana’s WBO Champ Isaac Dogboe Extends Deal With Top Rank


WBO World super bantamweight champion, Isaac Dogboe, has extended his deal with American-based promotional outfit Top Rank.


Following Dogboe’s win over the then WBO World super bantamweight champion, Jesse Magdaleno last April, he signed a one-year promotional deal with Bob Arum’s Top Rank.


In the first deal, the Ghanaian was given a three-fight option and he only had fought once under Top Rank’s label.

Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe signed a new four-year deal with Top Rank, a professional boxing promotion company owned by highly renowned promoter Bob Arum.

The long-term co-promotional agreement would see the 23-year-old Ghanaian boxing champion feature in big-scale undercards and super fights considering the pedigree of his new promotion outfit.

They have managed and promoted the likes of Joe Fraizer, George Foreman, Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather, among many others and even with our boxing icon Azumah Nelson and we see this partnership as a step in the right direction considering how far we have come.

“We have done our best in reviving local boxing, but now we have to go international and do more because the crowd always loves Dogboe’s style of boxing,” Snr. Dogboe said.

Dogboe after his ruthless display against Japanese boxer Hidenori Otake back in August would make a comeback into the ring on December 8, as an under-card to.
