Navarrete Was Shocked That Dogboe Took So Many Hard Shots

Tuscon, Arizona - Mexico's Emanuel Navarrete left zero doubt in the rematch. The WBO super bantamweight world champion defended his title against the man he beat five months prior, Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe, via 12th-round TKO.

Navarrete won a unanimous decision versus Dogboe (20-2, 14 KOs) in their first meeting last Dec. 8 at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, and the rematch was more of the same.
 
At the time of the stoppage, two of the judges had Navarrete ahead 109-99, with the third judge scoring it 109-98.

Navarrete (27-1, 23 KOs) scored knockdowns in the sixth and 12th rounds. Following the knockdown in the 12th, Dogboe’s father and trainer, Paul Dogboe, threw in the towel.
 
"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!"
 
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.

In other action on the card, Mykal "The Professor" Fox (20-1, 5 KOs) upset 2016 Olympic gold medalist Fazliddin "Fayzi" Gaibnazarov (7-1, 4 KOs) in a 10-round super lightweight bout, winning by scores of 96-92 2x and 95-93. Fox had a nearly nine-inch height advantage and used his southpaw jab and long arms to his advantage.
