The aftermath of last Saturday's fight at the Bukom Boxing Arena saw many Ghanaians express displeasure at Emmanuel Tagoe's victory over the 36 year old Argentine boxer, Fernando David Saucedo.

Since last Saturday, many Ghanaians have called for a new fight to be set up a fight between Emmanuel Tagoe, and Isaac Dogboe.

Nevertheless, speaking to Hot FM, Asamoah Gyan expressed concerns over a potential bout between the two Ghanaian boxers, suggesting that it would be something of a conflict for Ghana should the two be pitted against each other.

I don’t support that fight to come off, the two boxers are raising the flag of Ghana high and i don’t think it will be right for them to fight....Dogboe has gotten the chance to fight for the World title so the two can’t fight, I don’t support it. Moreover, they are not at the same weight class, Dogboe is at super bantamweight while Tagoe is a lightweight boxer," he added

Gyan went on to say that Isaac Dogboe fought for a world title, and that this alone is a reason they should not fight. He added that if Ghanaians really want the fight he would promote it, and that he thinks Dogboe would be victorious in such a fight.
