Robeisy Ramirez beats Isaac Dogboe to claim WBO Featherweight title

Ghanaian boxer Isaac Dogboe lost his bid to win the WBO Featherweight world title fight to Cuban Robeisy Ramirez.


After 12 rounds of action, the judges were unanimous in their decision, scoring it 117-110, 118-109, 119-108 all in favour of the Cuban, who claimed the vacant WBO featherweight title.

Dogboe was never in control of the fight after being rocked by Ramirez in the early rounds before the Cuban dictated the tempo of a highly competitive fight in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the early hours of Sunday.

The fight was largely one where Ramirez was able to use his experience and mastery of distance to get off and land sharp left hands on Dogboe, who had to try to find his way into punching range.

In the beginning it seemed as if Dogboe was a bit hesitant and about walking onto punches from Ramirez, but after he started losing rounds he really had no other choice but to try to close the distance. The problem for Dogboe was that he was never really able to get things together for long enough to establish any real momentum, and once Ramirez dropped him in the 12th round, the scoring became pretty much academic.

In the post-fight press conference Ramirez said he’s ready to take on anyone who’s put in front of him next, including Joet Gonzalez who took a win on the co-feature, which we’ll get to momentarily.

As for Dogboe, he wasn’t so gracious in defeat, claiming that the knockdown was a garbage call despite that not even making the difference on the scorecards. Dogboe called for a rematch, but it seems unlikely that he’ll get his wish.
