The Ghanaian was the first to step on the scale and he came in at 125.4Ibs.

Lopez, who is the holder of the NABF also weighed 126.2Ibs.

The fight will be Dogboe's firsy outing in 2021 after returning from a two-year hiatus to dismissed Chris Avalos in round 7 on July 21, 2020.

Dogboe became Ghana's youngest world champion at age 22 when he dethroned Jesse Magdaleno.

However, Dogboe failed in his second title defense when he lost his belt to Emanuel Navarette.

In the rematch against the Mexican, Dogboe failed to recapture his belt as Navarette beat him for the second time.

Meanwhile, Ghanaian midfielder, Abdul Majeed Ashimeru, has joined Belgium Jupiler Pro League giants RSA Anderlecht on a permanent deal after a successful loan spell.

The 23-year-old playmaker signed a four-year deal that will keep him at the club until June 2025.

Ashimeru earlier joined the Purple and White in January on loan and after impressing the technical team he was handed a permanent deal.

Sporting Director Peter Verbeke explains why they were convinced in handing the Ghanaian a deal.

"Despite a difficult integration due to COVID-19 and an injury, Majeed has shown in his best moments what he can teach us. He has an excellent vista and passing, coupled with speed and infiltration ability, interesting qualities to give our midfield a little extra bring the following seasons," he told the club's official website.
