A fight between undefeated Michael Conlan and former WBO junior featherweight champion Isaac Dogboe has been agreed upon for Dec. 5. The bout will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on a card slated to be headlined by WBC heavyweight titlist Tyson Fury, sources told ESPN.
“I’m really excited for this fight — [he’s a] former world champion and dangerous guy,” Conlan (14-0, 8 KOs) told ESPN. “As soon as it was mentioned, I said, ‘Yes get it done.’ Isaac likes to talk, and I’m looking forward to shutting him up!”
Conlan last fought on Aug. 15, winning with a 10th-round TKO of Sofiane Takoucht in London.
Dogboe, who suffered consecutive losses to Emanuel Navarrete in 2018 and 2019, bounced back with an eighth-round TKO victory over Chris Avalos on July 21 at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas.
Dogboe’s trainer, Barry Hunter, said that Dogboe will begin training for the fight this week.
