Video:Isaac Dogboe Begins Training With New Legendary Trainer Freddie Roach

Young Ghanaian boxer Isaac Dogboe has begun training with renowned boxing trainer Frederick Steven Roach.

The 24-year-old has seen his career take a major hit following two successive losses to Mexico’s Emmanuel Navarette.

Last December, Dogboe lost his WBO super bantamweight title to Navarette following a one-sided bout.

It was the first professional defeat in the career of the Ghanaian after he lost by unanimous decision to his opponent.

Dogboe had a rematch with Navarette in May, but again fell flat against the Mexican.

This time, the Ghanaian could not last the entire 12 rounds, as he was handed a Technical Knockout (TKO) in the final round.

Dogboe’s camp initially announced that the young boxer would quite the sport in order to focus on schooling.

However, it appears his father, Paul Dogboe, has now paved way for the more experienced Frederick Roach to take over as the boxer’s trainer.
