ISAAC DOGBOE IS INTERIM WBO FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPION

Undefeated Ghanaian boxer, Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe maintained his 100 percent record against the tough number one ranked Mexican contender, Cesar Juarez, taking over WBO Interim Junior Featherweight title at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra on Saturday night.

A resilient Isaac Dogboe sent his first message of intention when he sent Cesar Juarez grappling on the canvas in Round 2 of the stipulated 12.

Having vowed earlier to tame the monster in opponent Cesar Juarez and make history on the night, Isaac Dogboe was already on course to keeping his promise to set the chain of events leading to winning a world title for his homeland, a feat which has evaded the country in the last 20 years.

A stinging left hook to the jaw of Cesar Juarez was enough to send him to the canvas a second time and eventually end his night in the ring. A number of combinations of hooks and jabs from Isaac Dogboe ended the fight for Juarez in the 5th round.

Prior to the fight, the Mexican warrior who has won 20 and lost five times in 25 fights described his showdown with Dogboe as a walkover, stressing that it would be impossible for his opponent to beat him, but alas that was not the case in this instance.

Next on the ladder is for Isaac Dogboe to challenge WBO titleholder Jessie Magdaleno, who was supposed to defend his title against Juarez but bowed out due to a wrist injury he sustained in the build-up to the fight.

Dogboe is now guaranteed a fight with Magdaleno whom he once sparred with in Las Vegas by June in a mandatory title fight following his victory against Cesar Juarez.

Isaac Dogboe has now won 18 fights 12 of them being knockouts and losing none of them.
