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.

Magdaleno made his way to his feet, but he wasn't all there.

Dogboe kept a measured, but consistent assault coming his way with more right hands and body shots. Magdaleno made it through the round, but Dogboe had snatched away the momentum and he sustained the advantage over the next four rounds. Magdaleno showed heart in trying to regain the movement and zeal he had early, but the impact of Dogboe's body punching appeared to be limiting his opponent's movement and will to continue.
