Two of Ghana’s boxing greats, Professor Azumah Nelson, and Ike ‘Bazooka’ Quartey have both tipped Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe to dominate the sport, after the 23-year-old knocked out Mexican Cesar Juarez in the fifth round of their WBO Interim Super Bantamweight contest at the Bukom Boxing Arena on Saturday night.
The victory which was delivered in efficient fashion at the Bukom Boxing Arena has led to suggestions that Ghana now has a credible boxer capable of becoming an undisputed champion in the near future.
Speaking to the press after the bout, Professor Azumah Nelson said “I have always had confidence in Dogboe and what he did today was a demonstration for everyone to see what I have always been talking about. Now he has won this bout by God’s grace and we are now looking forward for him to go to the top.”
Ike ‘Bazooka’ Quartey will get there (to the top), because from what I saw today I can tell you that he is good, he is very good. Of course he needs to keep working hard because working hard is the only way to go. If he works hard there is no stopping him because he is that good, trust me. I think that he is a bit short but he is strong so if he can use his strength then his size should not be a problem.”
Isaac Dogboe has now won 18 fights, 12 of them being knockouts and losing none of them.
