Earlier, YEN.com.gh broke the news that Ghana’s Isaac Dogboe will be defending his WBO World super bantamweight belt against Emanuel Navarrete on December 8, 2018 at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
However, Dogboe, who is Ghana’s youngest world champion took to his Instagram page to confirm the news.
The upcoming clash will be Dogboe’s second defense of the world title he won last April.
The former Olympian claimed the belt after dethroning then champion, Jesse Magdaleno - he stopped the American in round 11.
The Ghanaian successfully made his first defense of his title after blasting out Japanese warrior, Hidenori Otake, in round one last August.
Dogboe (20-0, 14 Kos) is now up for another challenge as he takes on Navarrete who is one of the toughest boxers in the super bantamweight division.
Navarette has fought 25 times, winning 24 and losing only one – out of the 24 wins he has recorded 22 knockouts.
The Mexican is currently ranked number two by the WBO and number one by the WBA.
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported a story Isaac Dogboe receiving a brand new Mecedes Benz worth $100,000 from Silver Star Auto Limited.
The car was given to Isaac Dogboe on his 24th birthday on September 24, 2018.
