History will be made this week when the first championship fight on a Fight Club OC show will take place Thursday in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California. 2012 Rio Olympic Bronze Medal winner Murodjon Akhmadaliev faces Ramon Contreras for the vacant WBA Intercontinental super bantamweight belt.

Interview: WBO 122lb champ Isaac Dogboe

By David Finger

For the last several years boxing insiders (including this writer) had been warning of a storm coming in from the West Coast of Africa. It was destroying everything in its path and there was no question that it was headed straight to Las Vegas…the capital of boxing the world over. Some ignored the forecast. Others wondered if the storm would really be that destructive, with some assuming it was just another false alarm.

But last April 28th the Royal Storm of Africa Isaac Dogboe (19-0, 13 KOs) made landfall on the East Coast, sweeping away undefeated WBO junior featherweight champion Jessie Magdaleno before leaving town with the belt. Continue reading “Interview: WBO 122lb champ Isaac Dogboe”

WBO 122lb challenger Otake departs for USA

By Joe Koizumi

Japanese 37-year-old veteran, current OPBF super-bantam champ and WBO #6 Hidenori Otake (31-2-3, 14 KOs) left for US today (Sunday) in order to have an ambitious shot at the WBO 122-pound belt against Isaac Dogboe (19-0, 13 KOs) of Ghana in Glendale, Arizona, this coming Saturday.

Otake

For Otake, it will be his second world title crack abroad as he, in 2014, failed to win the WBA title from Scott Quigg by a unanimous decision in Liverpool UK. Otake is a persistent infighter whose durability and stamina are his assets throughout his 12–year career. We hope Otake will show a good performance against the unbeaten Ghanaian, 23, who is making his initial defense since he dethroned Jessie Magdaleno via eleventh-round demolition in Philadelphia last April. Gambare (good luck)!
