Robeisy Ramirez out to prove not all Cuban boxers are boring
by Anthony Cocks

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Robeisy ‘El Tren’ Ramirez 11-1 (7) will get his first crack at a world title when he faces Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe 24-2 (15) for the vacant WBO featherweight title at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma on April 1.

Good match-up for the vacant title. The Cuban or the Ghanaian?

First the "business" piece. The WBO title again cycles through Top Rank. Loma, Valdez, Shakur, Navarrete, now one of these guys. What did they do? Purchase the belt outright?

As for the fight, Dogboe with the experience; Ramirez the unknown at this level. Close in size and age. Ramirez had the extended amateur career. Dogboe's got a lot of fight in him and a strong survival instinct. Tends to get sloppy in crisis situations exposing his limited amateur schooling. Since two losses to Navarrete at 122, he's been beating the TopRank hand-me-downs at 126.  Appears to be on a solid trajectory building to this shot. Been on the world radar since beating Cesar Juarez over five years ago but he's still just 28, younger than Ramirez.

Ramirez has the edge in skills. He's been knocking guys out while Dogboe's been going the distance. Ramirez's best win was Abraham Nova. We're still discovering how good he can be but this isn't all that favorable a matchup for him. Although Dogboe came from 122 he's been fighting long enough at 126 to be established. And though he's been around the block. Dogboe's by no means old. At Ramirez's age he probably wants to move quickly but this is too much too soon in terms of ring experience. He has the potential to surprise us, but going with the known quantity in this spot.

This is a good featherweight fight.

Might be Dogboe last chance to re-capture another world title. I was at both fights he lost against Naverette. Amazing he's in this position, years after those two beatings. 

As for Robeisy, supremely talented in skill. I was at his career low, and career high. Was in Philly to see him lose his pro debut, then at his fight where he destroyed Nova. 

Ramirez vs Luis Lopez is a fight i would love to see at the end of the year.
