Ghanaian boxer, Isaac Dogboe’s management has denied news purporting his nationality switch from Ghana to the UK.

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

The statement reads:

“It has come to the attention of Team Dogboe that a news item is 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.
Let’s all rally behind him as the North American Boxing Federation (NABF) Champion
to clinch the number 1 title contender position come Saturday 23rd July, 2022 at the
Grand Casino Hinckley, Minnesota, USA for the motherland.”

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.

Dogboe has fought under the Ghanaian flag since breaking out as a professional, although he holds both Ghanaian and British citizenship.
