The Management of former Ghanaian WBO super-bantamweight champion, Isaac Dogboe has denied news purporting their client’s nationality switch from Ghana to the United Kingdom.
The 27-year-old boxer was reported on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 to have switched his nationality ahead of his upcoming Featherweight World title eliminator against Joet Gonzalez where he will no more fight in the name of Ghana.
However, a statement released by the boxer’s camp, Rising Star Promotions, described the news about ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe as “falsehood.”
“It has come to the attention of Team Dogboe that a news item peddling falsehood as to Isaac Dogboe’s nationality”
“He has and will always fight for Ghana and has not issued any communication or granted any interview on a nationality switch. Kindly disregard any such information” portion of the statement explained.
The management thus urged the general public to rather “rally behind him [Isaac Dogbe] as the North American Boxing Federation (NABF) Champion to clinch the number 1 title contender position.”
Dogboe has represented Ghana as a professional boxer although he holds both Ghanaian and British citizenship.
Isaac Dogbe fights two-time American world title challenger Joet Jesus Gonzalez on Saturday, July 23, 2022, at the Grand Casino Hinckley in Hinckley, Minnesota.
Gonzalez’s WBO International belt will be on the line, while the winner is likely to have a title shot against Emanuel Navarrete.
