Isaac Dogboe successfully defended his WBO International belt win a sixth round technical knoeck out over Javier Chacon from Argentina.

Fighting before a packed crowd at the Bukom Bukom Boxing Arena, with world acclaimed top referee in the center, Dogboe the Royal Storm was highly inspired and boxed his way to victory in grand style to the admiration of the fans and even the opponent’s corner.

Dogboe who represented Ghana at the 2012 Olympic Games in London exploded from the first round turned in his career best, battering Chacon until the Argentinean refused to come out of his corner at the start of the seventh.

Team Chacon claimed a hand injury, but it appeared as if each of his body parts hurt after the one-sided pasting. Dogboe promised to defend his WBO International super bantamweight belt in impressive fashion. He took charge from the opening bell, unloading a variety of power punches to his slower foe’s head and ribs.

Chacon whose record is now (25-4-1, 7 KO’s), proved his toughness, but his stubbornness could not pass round seven. The 36-year-old, two-time world title challenger had little to offer in return. The sixth was particularly brutal and after a minute-long conversation, Chacon wisely bowed out.

Dogboe (17-0,11 KO’s), is now in line to meet WBO World super bantamweight champion Jessie Magdaleno. The two sparred when Dogboe was merely 4-0 but much has changed for the Ghanaian since then.

Former world champion Prof. Azumah Nelson declared Isaac Dogboe  as Ghana’s current best boxer although lightweight contender Richard Commey, Duke Micah and SWAG Boxer of theYear, Emmanuel Tagoe aka Game Boy might take offence to that statement. But now, Dogboe is ready for the step up in class and demonstrated it in the ring with Referee Tony Weeks in the center.

Among the dignitaries who watched the fight live was former president of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings. Dogbe said that his victory would not have been possible had it not been God and also the support of Ghanaians thus dedicated the victory to God and all Ghanaians.

“I want to thank everyone who came here to support me. Chacon is a very intriguing boxer with great movement but I kept my focus. There were moments where I felt I could knock him out but I had to be cautious. I have to thank him for coming down here to fight me but God was on my side. Everything that I have achieved is because of God and I dedicated this victory to him”, the visibly excited Dogboe expressed.
