- He said Dogboe is a true world champion
Former President, Jerry John Rawlings, has congratulated Isaac Dogboe following the latter’s win over Japan’s Hidenori Otake last Saturday.
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported how Dogboe in making his first defence of his WBO world super bantamweight title annihilated Otake by stopping him in round one.
The Ghanaian hard puncher dropped the Japanese warrior twice en-route the stoppage.
Following the win, the former President took to his Twitter handle to eulogized Dogboe.
According to Rawlings, Dogboe boxed like a true world champion and he will be taking the world by storm.
Dogboe first won the belt last April after dethroning then champion Jessie Magdaleno. The 23 year-old hard puncher destroyed the Mexican in round 11.
The win made Dogboe the youngest world champion to come from Ghana.
Immediately after Otake's win, Dogboe called out WBA world super bantamweight Danny Roman.
"I knew i will stop Otake and i have done it. My next aim is a unification fight and i'm ready for it," he said.
"Danny Roman wherever you are i'm ready for you. Come out and let us rumble."
Dogboe is a former Olympian, he competed for Ghana at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
He is undefeated after 20 professional bouts. Dogboe made his debut in 2013.
