Former World Boxing Organization (WBO) super bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe has turned to crowdfunding to finance his bid to reclaim a world title.
Dogboe who signed a long-term promotional contract with Bob Arum’s Top Rank in 2018, has not fought since suffering back-to-back losses to WBO super bantamweight champion Emanuel Navarrete. He is now looking to raise $10,000 in over 60 days on popular Canadian sports crowdfunding site, MakeaChamp.
Dogboe, 24, is offering sponsorship opportunities and signed items in exchange for funds received.
“To excel, I need to constantly push my limits. I have put my heart and soul into my craft and I’m ready to work extra hard, but at the same time, I know that the road to success will be costly,” Dogboe says on his MakeaChamp profile.
“By supporting me today, you are investing in something bigger than just a fundraiser. You’re changing my life. Thank you for your generous support!”.
MakeaChamp was started in 2011 by two competitive judokas who needed to finance their athletic goals.
