Rising Star Africa, the management of former World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Super Bantamweight Champion Isaac Dogboe has refuted reports of their boxer opting for a nationality switch.
Media reports on Wednesday suggested that the former Ghana Olympian has switched nationality to British ahead of his final eliminator against Joet Gonzalez on July 23, 2022, in Minnesota.
A statement from the management said: “It has come to the attention of Team Dogboe that a news item is peddling falsehood that our boxer switched nationality.
He has and would always fight for Ghana and has not issued any communication or granted any interview on a nationality switch.
“Kindly disregard any such information.
“Let’s all rally behind him as the North American Boxing Federation (NABF) Champion to clinch the number 1 title contender position come Saturday 23rd July, 2022 at the Grand Casino Hinckley, Minnesota, the USA for the motherland,” the statement said.
