GHANAIAN featherweight boxer, Isaac Dogboe, is happy about the prospect of challenging for the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa featherweight title which eluded him three months ago.
The UK based boxer currently campaigning in Ghana was scheduled to fight for the title against George Krampah who chickened out at the last minute.
It later emerged that Krampah ‘swerved’ his opponent because of a minor wrist injury he suffered while training.
But after dogboe recorded a third round stoppage of Emmanuel Laryea in a featherweight contest a fortnight ago, Krampah threw a new challenge at the enterprising and hard punching Dogboe for the WBO title.
Dogboe accepted the challenge, relishing the prospect of defeating Krampah to win the title.
He told the Times Sports he was elated Krampah wants to fight at long last.
“I could have turned down the challenge having wasted our time the first time but I feel Ghanaians need to know who the best among us is.”
“I have doubted the reason they (Team Krampah) gave for the first withdrawal. I feel he just run away because he knows he has no chance with me out there in the ring. I am still training very hard despite fighting not too long ago.”
Dogboe remains unbeaten in as many as 11 fights and currently looks unstoppable considering the form he has shown in recent times and says he is not relenting on his oars for now.
“This is just the start for me; I am hoping to continue like this until I have the chance to fight for a world title. Until that time comes, I will keep working harder to deal with any obstacle that comes my way.”
The 21-year old boxer said Krampah is one of the Ghanaian boxers he has lined up to defeat on his way to the top with the others being veteran Malik Jabir who has vowed to stop him and Emmanuel Quartey, an overwhelming featherweight prospect with a huge following in Ghana.
