GHANA-based Nigerian Felix Williams (23-1, 17 KOs) and his match maker Solomon Otoo have thrown down a challenge at reigning WBO Africa featherweight champion Isaac Dogboe (16-0, 10 KOs).
Three weeks ago, Williams stopped Taofik Bisuga in round four to win the vacant WBE/WBL featherweight belts, while Dogboe who dropped in weight two weeks ago annihilated Julian Aristule in the seventh round to win the vacant WBO International super bantamweight title and also claimed Aristule’s WBO Latino super bantamweight title.
“We are ready to fight Isaac Dogboe for his WBO Africa featherweight belt,” Otoo told Bukomboxingnews.com. “Dogboe is a good boxer, no doubt about that, but Felix Williams is the boxer that will end Dogboe’s unblemished record.”
“We will be writing to them (Team Dogboe) and if they agree we will fight March 10. We want to use the fight to celebrate Ghana’s 60th birthday. We have put everything in place and it will be promoted by Box Office Promotions.”
Williams who is ready for the fight has advised Team Dogboe to accept the challenge.
“Dogboe wants to be a world champion and before achieving that feat you have to beat the best and I’m one of the best in the featherweight division. I want them [Team Dogboe] to accept our challenge because it will be the second time we are challenging them. They turned down our request six months ago, but I hope this time they will not run away,” he intimated.
The southpaw boxer concluded: “Dogboe has been unstoppable since he turned pro two years ago, but I will be the boxer to stop him, I’m more skillful and intelligent than him. They have to accept our call so that March next year we can rumble.”
