Isaac Dogboe said he will come back stronger than ever after losing to Cuban boxer Robeisy Ramirez on Saturday for the vacant WBO featherweight championship.
The title battle between the two competitors took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Ramirez ultimately prevailed by a unanimous score of 117–110, 118–109, and 119–108 on the judges’ scorecards to claim the title. After the battle, Dogboe admitted his errors and said he was unable to find the extra equipment that would have given him the advantage.
Still, he was thankful for the chance to compete for the title and said he would like to try again someday.Here’s what he said after the match;
“First of all, I would like to thank God almighty for the opportunity and coming out of the ring safely. I would like to thank my coaches, my team, and everyone who supported me. Thirdly, I would like to apologize to my coaches and the rest of my team.
We did not get the decision today, but we will definitely be back. We still have a lot of work to do. I fell short tonight.
Congratulations to Robeisy Ramirez. He is a terrific fighter. I won’t take anything from him. I guess I was the aggressor, but maybe I was not aggressive enough. I could not push as hard as my coach (Barry Hunter) would have loved me to push, but I will be back.
