The stage is now set as Ghana's, Isaac 'Royal Storm' Dogboe, is ready to roar again after being away from the ring for over one year.
On Monday, July 20, 2020 Dogboe and his opponent, Chris Avalos, confirmed their readiness for the much-anticipated clash on Tuesday, July 21 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA.
Ahead of their fight, Dogboe and Avalos passed their mandatory weigh-in by tipping the scales.
It was Avalos who first stepped on the scales. He weighed 125.6 lbs.
Dogboe, who is a former world champion, weighed more than Avalos as he came in at 126 lbs.
The Dogboe and Avalos fight will be in the featherweight division after the former decided to move up in weight.
Featherweight won't be a new weight for Dogboe as he started his career at that division before dropping to super bantamweight.
His last fight in the featherweight division was against Filipino's, John Neil Tabanao, in August 2016, which he lost via a unanimous decision.
Dogboe, before staying away from the ring, lost his title after suffering back-to-back losses against Mexico's, Emanuel Navarrete.
Watch the video below:
His first loss to Navarrete happened in December 2018, while his second loss to the same boxer was in May 2019.
Meanwhile, former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has heaped praises on his older brother, Baffour Gyan.
According to Gyan, Baffour, who is a retired footballer, has been his second god.
In explaining why he sees his brother as his second god, Gyan said he acted as a guardian angel, ensuring that he has a successful career devoid of the mistakes he, Baffour, committed in the past.
