The ostentatious 21-year-old expressed disappointment at Ayi pulling out of their scheduled clash, initially billed for the Azumah Nelson Sports Complex, and is daring his rival to face him in the ring to determine who the best featherweight in Ghana is.
Under the maiden event of Aborigines Beach Resort Promotions bill, the undefeated Dogboe is scheduled to defend the WBO Africa and WBA Pan-Africa Featherweight belts he won by demolishing George Krampah last December.
The also-undefeated Ayi was earmarked as the ideal opponent for the headliner but the boxer, trained by experienced coach Ofori Asare, has apparently refused to sign the contract to make the fight official.
Dogboe remains furious even though Bukomboxingnews.com sources indicate plans are far advanced for Michael Pappoe (cousin of former world champion, Joshua Clottey) to sign up as the new opponent on February 20.
“Patrick Ayi, this guy was talking so much and he was also saying he want to fight me, he want to do this, he want to do that,” Dogboe says in the video. “But now we bring the contract and he doesn’t want to fight.
“This is what separates boys from men. You cannot call for something and when it’s time to prove it you want to back out. It seems he hasn’t got the balls to step up to the plate,” he continued.-BBC
