Former WBO super bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe has been ruled out for the remainder of the year after suffering an injury.
Dogboe who suffered back-to-back losses to Emanuel Navarrete (the last of which was on May 11, 2019) was eyeing a November 30 return against former WBA (Super) and IBF super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton.
However, injury has put paid to that fight.
Dogboe, 24, (20-2, 14 KO) took to Instagram to confirm that the bout against his former sparring partner Frampton (26-2, 15 KO) was off.
“Royal Storm” as Dogboe is known, was on his way to be a candidate of the 2018 Fighter of the Year after knocking out Cesar Juarez, Jessie Magdaleno, and Hidenori Otake, only to be defeated in a one-sided loss to Emanuel Navarrete last December.
He has since changed trainers twice and hinted at moving up in weight class to featherweight (126 pounds) or super featherweight (130 pounds).
