Isaac Dogboe was displeased with the officiating on both sides of the ropes in his latest title bid.

The former WBO junior featherweight titlist had plenty to say about referee Gary Ritter as well as judges Josef Mason, David Sutherland and Chris Flores following his twelve-round defeat to double Olympic Gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez. Their vacant WBO featherweight title fight saw Dogboe hit the floor in an officially ruled knockdown early in the 12th and final round of their ESPN+ headliner from Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The sequence—which was upheld following a full review by the Oklahoma State Athletic Commission at ringside—did not have any impact on the outcome. Cuba’s Ramirez—who now trains in Las Vegas—won by scores of 117-110, 118-109 and 119-108 to claim the vacant title.

“Robeisy Ramirez is a terrific fighter but the result was bullsh!t,” Dogboe insisted to ESPN’s Bernardo Osuna during their in-ring post-fight interview. “That knockdown was no knockdown.

“You talk about a dictatorship. That was a dictatorship of results right there.”

Dogboe (24-3, 15KOs) was the busier fighter according to Compubox’s unofficial punch statistics. He 619 total punches, compared to 495 for Ramirez (12-1, 7KOs). However, Ramirez was by far the more accurate and effective, landing 160 punches for a 32.3% connect rate. Dogboe landed just 119 blows, 18.3% percent of his total punches.

Still, the 28-year-old Ghana-born, London raised former titleholder—who now trains in Washington, D.C.—felt like he was never given a fair shake once the scores were announced.

In his mind, a sign of things to come was provided less than a minute into the final round when it was determined that a left hand by Ramirez caused what was ruled as the bout’s lone official knockdown. Replays suggested that it could have been viewed as a glancing blow and more of a push to the canvas, though not an easy call to make in real time.

Nevertheless, Dogboe was unable to extend his four-fight win streak or realize his dream of winning a second major title. He suffered his first defeat since back-to-back losses to Emanuel Navarrete which ended his WBO junior featherweight title reign and his stay at that weight.

The goal remains to put a featherweight title around his waist.

“Let’s run it back. That’s all I have to say,” Dogboe demanded. “A rematch—if he’s a true champion let’s run it back. He’s a great fighter but let’s have a rematch. I’ll tell you this, I’ll be back.”
