Undefeated Ghanaian boxing prospect, Isaac Dogboe has the chance to defend his WBO International Super Bantamweight belt against Argentine Claudio Fernando Echegaray (17-0-1, 9 KOs) on July 22.
The bout will be staged at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra.
It will be Dogboe’s first bout at the Bukom Emporium since it was commissioned last year.
For Dogboe, 22, this fight is more than just a homecoming. Rather, it is another opportunity to make a statement to the international boxing community and in particular WBO champion Jessie Magdaleno.
Dogboe’s last fight introduced him to the international boxing press as he destroyed another Argentine, reigning WBO Latino champion Julian Evaristo Aristule, in seven lopsided rounds on the undercard of the Joseph Parker-Andy Ruiz fight in Auckland, New Zealand. Fighting as the lead-in to a WBO world heavyweight title put the Ghanaian on the radar, but he recognizes that keeping the momentum going will involve scoring another dominant performance against another tough South American.
In his division, Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe is now ranked 4th in the world by the WBO.
