Isaac Dogboe stops Jessie Magdaleno to win WBO belt

23-year-old Isaac Dogboe become the youngest world champion in Ghana’s rich boxing history in Philadelphia, stopping Jessie Magdaleno in the 11th round to win the WBO super bantamweight championship.

Dogboe (19-0, 13 KO) started rough in this one, as Magdaleno (25-1, 18 KO) dropped the challenger in the opening round. But Dogboe, who had never been down before, shook it off and came on strong as the fight went forward.

In the fifth round, it was Magdaleno’s turn to taste the canvas for the first time in his career, as he was dropped by a monster right hand and badly hurt. To Magdaleno’s credit, he got up and fought on, even calling Dogboe on repeatedly.
