The WBO World Super-Bantamweight Title

 

Unbeaten Super-Bantamweights Jessie Magdaleno and Isaac Dogboe clash for the WBO World Title in Philadelphia, live in the UK and Ireland on BoxNation.

Magdaleno (25-0, 18 KOs) dethroned Nonito Donaire to win the belt in November 2016, earning a unanimous decision in Las Vegas. He then stopped Adeilson Dos Santos in two rounds last April. By the time he squares off with Dogboe, it will have been 371 days since his last outing.

"It’s about experience, staying focused, and doing our job," Magdaleno said. "Manny [Robles] keeps me focused on the fight, and that is my main concern."

Dogboe (18-0, 12 KOs) has stopped 12 of his 18 opponents, and in his last win he picked up the WBO Interim strap after crushing Cesar Juarez in five rounds in Accra, Ghana.

"Jessie Magdaleno is a good boxer. You can't take anything away from him, he's a World Champion, he beat a legend - Nonito Donaire.

I know I'm going to go in there with full confidence," predicted the 23-year-old. "With the grace of God, I'm going to knock Jessie Magdaleno out and everyone is going to be shocked!"
