Former World Boxing Organization super bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe is in line to make a return to the ring on December 14 against undefeated two-time Irish Olympian Michael Conlan (12-0, 7 KOs) on December 14 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The super bantamweight clash is expected to be on the undercard of WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford vs.Egidijus Kavaliauskas, ESPN reports.
Although the reports add that there’s also a chance that Conlan, 27, could face former featherweight world title challenger Genesis Servania (32-2, 15 KOs) on December 7th.
Dogboe, 24, lost his WBO title to knockout artist Emanuel Navarrete (28-1, 24 KOs) last December, losing a 12-round unanimous decision.
In their rematch on May 11, Navarrete stopped Dogboe in the 12th round.
He has since made changes in his training, ditching his father Paul Dogboe for legendary American trainer Paul Roach.
Dogboe has also hinted at moving up to featherweight.
