Ghana’s Isaac Dogboe Saturday night recorded a 7th round TKO over his Argentine challenger Javier Nicolas Chacon in their WBO International Super Bantamweight title shot final eliminator.
On the other hand, Dogboe who was fighting in front of his countrymen at the Bukom Boxing Arena, Accra, was splendid from the first round through the sixth throwing punches and jabs to win all the six rounds the bout saw action.
The 22-year-old had sustained pressure on his older opponent and opened a cut on top of Chacon’s let eye that bled the rest of the fight.
Dogboe thus extended his fight record to 17-0, with Chacon at 30 bouts, four losses and a draw.
At the ringside were former three-time world boxing champion, Azumah Nelson and former Ghana President Jerry Rawlings who had both supported and pepped up Dogboe for the fight.
An excited Dogboe had virtually everyone to thank for, including his vanquished opponent.
Asked if he was desirous of a world title, the diminutive boxer named various as the “Royal Storm’ and “Brave Son”, passed the question on to Ghanaians, asking if they are ready for a champion.
