LIVE UPDATES: Dogboe vs Magdaleno

Young Ghanaian boxer, Isaac Dogboe, stands on the cusp of greatness as he challenges Mexican Jessie Magdaleno for his World Boxing Organisation (WBO) junior featherweight title at the at the Liacouras Centre in Philadelphia, USA, this morning.

It is a night of destiny for the 23-year-old challenger, nicknamed Royal Storm, as he faces a career-defining moment against a very formidable champion who makes only his second title defence since winning the crown in 2016 but has been inactive due to injury.

Dogboe displayed in January that he could be a tough customer as he stood toe to toe with Juarez, dropping him twice before American referee Tony Weeks stepped in to save the Mexican from further trouble. Since that 6th round TKO victory in Accra, the Ghanaian has been talking tough as he aims to follow the path walked by illustrious compatriots such as boxing David ‘Poison’ Kotei, Azumah Nelson, Ike Quartey, Alfred Kotey, Nana Yaw Konadu, Joshua Clottey and Joseph Agbeko.
