Isaac Dogboe’s upcoming bout against Michael Conlan scheduled for December has been cancelled.
This comes after the Irishman withdrawn from the Dec. 5 fight against former featherweight titlist Isaac Dogboe due to injury.
Conlan (14-0, 8 KOs), 28, is back home in Belfast, Northern Ireland, recovering after suffering the injury at a gym in South London, and admits he is now likely to box next on St. Patrick’s Day 2021.
The two-time Olympian and 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist is unable to train for the remainder of the year and perhaps into 2021 after suffering a tear of his left anterior talo-fibular ligament (ATFL) during training camp.
He posted the devastating news on his social media handle.
Dogboe was hoping to use the fight to get closer in his quest to regain his lost world title.
Team Dogboe is expected to announce their plans for the rest of the year in the coming days.
Following his successive loss to Emaneul Navarette, Dogboe this year mounted the ring and stopped Chris Matthew Avalos in Round 8.
The Royal Storm on July 21 mounted the ring did justice to his Mexican-American opponent at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA.
Speaking after the bout the former WBO Super Bantamweight champion said “I give blessings to the almighty God, it’s been a tough 14 months but God has been with me in every step of the way and I am grateful and just wants to say thank you and praise the Lord for my come back and everyone that has been by my side guiding me through this 14 months, it’s been a tremendous road but finally we are coming back. I felt great in the ring today.”
