WBO junior featherweight champion Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete (27-1, 23 KOs) delivered a one-sided twelve round beatdown of Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe (20-2, 14 KOs) to retain his belt on Saturday night before 4,424 at the Tucson Arena in Tucson, Arizona. Navarrete rocked Dogboe early and often over twelve punishing rounds. He dropped Dogboe in rounds six and twelve, prompting Dogboe’s corner to finally threw in the towel with 58 seconds left in the bout. Navarrete beat Dogboe by unanimous decision last December and this time it was even more decisive.

“It really surprised me that he took so many hard shots, but at the same time, he continued to throw strong punches,” Navarrete said. “I want to thank Dogboe because he gave me the opportunity to become a world champion, and now in this second fight, he gave me the opportunity to demonstrate that my first triumph wasn’t by accident and that there is a reason why I have the title. And to all the fighters at122 pounds, I tell them that if they want my title, then they can come and try and take it. ‘El Vaquero’ is here!”

“It’s not over until the final bell. Hats off to Navarrete. He did a great job,” Dogboe said. “Making super bantamweight is getting too difficult. My next fight, I will be moving up to {featherweight}. I will be much more comfortable there.”

The CompuBox stats told the story of the bout. Navarrete landed 314 punches, 215 of which were power shots. Meanwhile, Dogboe landed only 121 of 523 punches.
