The reigning WBO Super Bantamweight Champion – Isaac ‘The Royal Storm’ Dogboe has called on Bob Arum’s Top Rank Promotions to put him against the best in order to bring the best out of him.
The young Ghanaian boxing superstar will mount the ring to defend his title against Emanuel Navarrete [a Co feature of the Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Jose ‘Sniper’ Pedraza WBA/WBO lightweight unification bout] on December 08, at the Hulu Theater, Madison Square Garden.
According to Isaac Dogboe he’s ready to roll at the Madison Square Garden where fighters were made:
“Put me among the best, and you’ll see the best of Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe,” Dogboe said.
“We love the New York crowd. That’s what will motivate us and make us fight harder.
“Madison Square Garden is a legendary place. It’s a place where many fighters were made. Lomachenko and Pedraza are great fighters and being featured on a show with other great fighters is an honor.
“We are ready to roll. And to my fans, trust me, the ‘Royal Storm’ is coming to entertain!”
But the Mexican champion [Navarrete] is very confident that victory will go his way on fight night:
“This is the opportunity I was waiting for. I have a lot of respect for Isaac Dogboe, but this title will be mine,” Navarrete said.
“I feel very happy and motivated by this opportunity, even more, because of fighting in New York City.
“I know that from December 8 forward, the name Emanuel Navarrete will be known all around the world. I’m sure this win will be mine.”
