WBO Super Bantamweight Champion Isaac Dogboe wants to fight Daniel Roman in London.
The “Royal Storm” (20-0) successful defended his WBO crown against Japan’s Hidenori Otake with an impressive first round knockout victory in American last month. Has now turned his attention to facing more recognized title holders, with WBA Champion Daniel Roman at the top of his wish list along with Rey Vargas (32-0) and TJ Doheny (20-0).
“It would be great to have a fight here in the UK and I believe the easiest option would be Roman, because Eddie [Hearn] has signed him, so he can bring him to England. Isaac Dogboe against Daniel Roman would be great,” Dogboe said via Sky Sports.
“It would be a great match-up. He’s very strong, he likes to fight, and I also like to come forward too. Let’s meet in the middle,” he continued. “Roman is a great fighter. He likes to come forward and fight and I think it will be one of those 50-50 fights where no one knows what will happen. I believe Bob Arum can work with Eddie Hearn to bring the fight here.”
Roman (25-2-1) who is signed to Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, will defend his WBA World Super Bantamweight title against Gavin McDonnell (20-1-2) on Oct. 6 at the Wintrust Arena, Chicago, Ill. live on DAZN.
Dogboe is signed to Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum’s Top Rank Promotions on a three-fight deal and is looking to unify the Super Bantamweight Division.
“We have been around the world and now it’s time to come back home and I would love to fight in London,” Dogboe said. “But as long as it is in the UK, give me a call Eddie! … If they can get Vargas, or Roman in England, that would be great.”
