In what appeared like a perfect storm of sorts, undefeated and Ghana’s latest crossover star, Isaac ‘the Royal Storm’ Dogboe has expressed his sincere gratitude to all and sundry especially his fans in Ghana, for their immense support and prayers towards his victory over Hidenori Otake.
In a latest video released from the camp of ¨teamDogboe¨, Isaac is seen together with his brother Josiah Dogboe, an upcoming Southpaw chanting the now popular accolade ‘Neho, Neho, Neho’.
¨We thank God for giving us a TKO victory, the support was so great and I just want to say thank you to everyone in Ghana, you have been spectacular especially for all your prayers. Some key people supported us in this fight like Mr. Twum Barima and The Vice President, Dr Mahmoud Bawumia. It’s been great and I just want to say thank you¨, he said.
The fast and deadly jabbing youngster did not leave out the challenges his team have faced en route the success ladder.
¨At long last we are emerging and we’re putting Ghana back on the map, the boxing world thought Ghana was finish until we emerged. At this moment, my team still got a lot of debts to clear we were determined to put Ghana boxing back on the map¨, he added.
¨My father borrowing some monies and putting on the shows and promoting my bouts. He is a man of his words and when he starts something, he makes sure he backs it with action, so I know we are going to make things happen. The success of every athlete lies in sponsorship and everybody knows the challenges that we have been through, but at long last we’re emerging¨, he continued.
Dogboe(20-0, 13 KOs) made the first defence of his WBO Junior featherweight title with a first-round knockout of Japanese challenger Hidenori Otake(31-3-3), with a good hook in the second minute of the first round to end the fight in the Glendale Arena, Arizona, United States of America (USA).
The Champ has made it clear that he’d like an opportunity to unify the belts at 122, perhaps say against WBC belt-holder Rey Vargas.
The young ferocious boxer won his current title back in April by stopping Jesse Magdaleno in an emphatic manner.
