However, the management team of Dogboe, RISING STAR AFRICA PROMOTION issued a press statement debunking the news reports.

“It has come to the attention of Team Dogboe that a news item is peddling falsehood as to Isaac Dogboe’s nationality,” the statement said.

“He has and will always fight for Ghana and has not issued any communication or granted any interview on the nationality switch. Kindly disregard any such information.”

Dogbe will fight two-time world title challenger Gonzalez in a 10-round main event Saturday, July 23, 2022, at 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.
