New WBO International super bantamweight champion, Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe, is not leaving any stone unturned until he conquers the world proper.
The 22-year-old Ghanaian destroyer will soon be plunged into a rigorous training regimen in a bid to put him in the right shape ahead of a potential world title, early next year.
Chief trainer and dad of the undefeated pugilist, Paul Dogboe, told the Times Sports yesterday that nothing was being left to chance to ensure the boxer hits “the perfect shape that we are all looking for.”
Dogboe last Saturday night demolished his Argentine opponent Julian Evaristo Aristule at Vector Arena in New Zealand to become the new WBO International super bantamweight and WBO Latino super bantamweight champion.
After a dawdling start, Dogboe, (16-0, 10 Kos) unleashed a ruthless flurry of killer punches to the head and body of his opponent in the seventh round, resulting in two knock downs which was prudently followed by a throw-in of the white towel from the camp of Aristule.
Interestingly, Team Dogboe was not too enthused about the overall performance of their ward and flew to the USA after the fight for further training.
“We are going to take a rest for some few days and savour the glory, but soon after we are gonna plunge into training until we hit that desired shape good enough to take on the world,” Paul added.
According to him, the ‘Royal Storm’ would be made to take on a couple of fights to get him ready for the ultimate title.
However, the boxer was excited at his feat, giving glory to God for “all that he has done for me.”
“Indeed, my God is always great. He has always been with me and I thank him very much for this title as I know there’s more to come my way,” Dogboe told the Times Sports, as he thanked Ghanaians too for their support and prayer for him.
Saturday’s victory was a final eliminator to the WBO world title held by Jesse Magdaleno of the United States.
Team Dogboe is expected back in Ghana in January, next month.
