Undefeated Ghanaian, Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe will take on the tough number one ranked Mexican contender, Cesar Juarez, for the WBO Interim Junior Featherweight title at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra tonight.
Ghana’s world title hopeful Isaac Dogboe has vowed to tame the monster in opponent Cesar Juarez and make history this evening as it’s been 20 years since the country won a world title.
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 Dogboe eulogised David in the Bible and stated that he was ready to inflict a sixth defeat on Juarez, whom he referred to as a Goliath in the ring.
The arena is filled with fans of Isaac Dogboe as they expect a splendid performance from him.
The winner of the bout is expected 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 guaranteed a fight with Magdaleno whom he once sparred with in Las Vegas by June in a mandatory title fight if he beats Juarez tonight.
