Here's everything you need to know as Britain’s Issac Dogboe bids to become the WBO featherweight world champion in Oklahome, USA, this weekend.
The two fighters will square off for the vacant WBO featherweight strap in the early hours of Sunday morning (April 2nd), with ringwalks expected at around 04:00 (BST).
The hotly-anticipated bout will take place at the Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with the venue holding around 2,500 spectators.
Viewers in the United Kingdom can watch the bout in full on Sky, with the build-up to the main bout and the undercard commencing from 23:30 on Sky Sports Action.
Double Olympic gold medallist Robeisy Ramirez takes to the ring as the overwhelming 1/7 favourite as he looks to claim his first world title, with British-Ghanaian Isaac Dogboe priced at .
Cuban southpaw, Ramirez, reigned supreme at amateur level in London 2012, winning coveted gold in the flyweight division before stepping up to bantamweight to capture his second gold medal four years later in Tokyo – and victory this weekend would propel him to the summit of the professional game too.
For Dogboe, meanwhile, the scheduled bout offers him the opportunity of becoming a two-time world champion, having previously held the WBO junior-featherweight strap before his points loss against Emanuel Navarrete in 2018.
The WBO’s 126-pound division title will be on the line after former holder Navarrete vacated the strap in February to pursue further success at junior-lightweight.
