Isaac Dogboe (19-0, 13 KO) got off the canvas after a first-round knockdown to capture the WBO Super Bantamweight championship via 11th-round TKO over the favored Jessie Magdaleno (25-1) in an excellent fight from Liacouras Center in Philadelphia on Saturday night.
Magdaleno, who was a minus-225 favorite, scored a knockdown with a sweeping left hand that landed on the side of Dogboe's head. Things looked bad for the 23-year-old Ghanaian early, but he had a better round in the second, lost ground in the third, but really began to take control in the fourth.
He was finding a home for his right hand and he never stopped throwing hard shots to the body. In the fifth round, Dogboe landed a crushing counter right hand that dropped Magdaleno like a ton of bricks.
