Isaac Dogboe returns to Accra July 22

By David Finger

It’s not always easy to get the attention of the international boxing community when you are a young, undefeated prospect from Accra, Ghana. In fact, it can be next to impossible. But for Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe (16-0, 10 KOs), he has proven he is more than up to the task. Since knocking out Michael Pappoe for the WBO Africa featherweight title last year, the WBO #6 and WBC #17 ranked junior featherweight has made a name for himself as arguably the hottest prospect on the African continent.

Dogboe is looking to make 2017 his breakout year as he returns home to Accra to defend his WBO International super bantamweight title against undefeated Argentine Claudio Fernando Echegaray (17-0-1, 9 KOs) on July 22nd at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, Ghana. (more…)

Toney turns out Sheppard’s lights

By Brad Snyder, The Undercard
Photos: Bob Ryder

The old saying in boxing, “power is the last thing to go” was solidified on Saturday night at Eastern Michigan Convocation Center by 48-year-old heavyweight James “Lights Out” Toney. His sharp, short punch ended his contest vs. “Lightning” Mike Sheppard. Ring announcer, Pete Trevino, said it best, “The lights went out at the 26 second mark of the sixth Round.”

The first five rounds of the fight, one could argue Sheppard was ahead on the scorecards. Toney was showing some defensive skills that reminded the crowd of his early fighting years, often finding himself on the ropes. While Sheppard was able to back his opponent there, he did have to reset after throwing some combinations. Most of the resets were because Toney was letting Sheppard know his punches were not affecting him. The crowd at the Eastern Michigan Convocation Center, were in awe, as Toney connected on Sheppard.

Moncelli to face Nicchi tonight for WBC International title

By Marco Bratusch

Tonight at the Pala Vespucci in Rome, Italy, Davide Buccioni’s BBT Production will stage a five-bout boxing card featuring Felice Moncelli (16-4-1, 5 KOs) vs. Adriano Nicchi (24-5-2, 11 KOs) for the vacant WBC International super welterweight title as the main event. The 23-year-old Moncelli, a two-time Italian champion from Corato di Bari, is expected to provide a good performance after his disputed victory against Francesco Lezzi last January. The young fighter looks to be a man able to shaken his foe almost every time he lands a clean punch from mid-range, yet definitely struggles when he faces a decent boxer that knows how to box at long distance, using straight punches or lateral movements.

In this aspect, the good experience at national levels that Nicchi brings on the table, a former Italian title holder himself and former European challenger, might pose some issues for Moncelli even though the latter is expected to pass the exam. Plus, the fact that Nicchi stylistically is not a slickster but usually likes to exchange leather with his opponent can give the fans an entertaining scrap in terms of action. Sportitalia televsion will brodcast the night in Italy from 10 PM, local time (GMT +1).

Earlier during the full boxing dedicated afternoon in east Rome, Italia Thunder team will take on the Colombia Heroicos, the only debutant team of the 2017 season, in the first quarter-finals of the WSB tournament. Several Rio 2016 Olympians boxers are expected to compete in this amateur exhibition.
