Ghana's Isaac Dogboe's hope of winning another world title is still on course following a superb display against Adams Lopez.

Dogboe reigned supreme over Lopez on Saturday night, June 19, 2021, in Las Vegas scoring level points on the card of judge Dave Moretti (95-95), as judges Chris Migliore (97-93) and Don Trella (96-94) who ruled in favor of Ghanaian.

Dogboe was fighting for just the second time since suffering back-to-back defeats to Emanuel Navarrete to end his title reign.

"A lot of people wrote me off after those losses to Navarette and said I was overhyped. People like me down stay down forever, we get back up," he said after the fight.

"I want to thank my team. They are not just trainers, they are family. God wanted me to be there," he added.

The squat Ghana native has since moved up to featherweight, with Saturday’s bout marking his second under the guidance of head trainer Barry Hunter.

In other news, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that English Premier League outfit, Newcastle United, is interested in signing Ghana captain Andre Ayew in the summer transfer window after the player left Swansea City at the end of last season.

The 31-year-old is currently a free agent and could join any club of his choice as several teams show interest in him.

The former Olympique Marseille striker ended last season in phenomenal fashion, netting 17 goals to singlehandedly lift Swansea fo the finals of the promotion play-offs, but lost out to Brentford.
