Isaac Dogboe beat American Joet Gonzalez on a split decision on Saturday in Hinckley, Minnesota.
One judge scored it 96-94 for Gonzalez, but that was overruled by Dogboe’s twin scores of 96-94.
With the win, Dogboe, a former 122-pound champion, has become the top contender for Rey Vargas’ 126-pound title.
“Whoever the champions are, they should watch out. The Royal Storm, I’m back baby,” Dogboe declared after the fight.
