Paul Dogboe, who happens to be the father of Ghanaian boxer Isaac Dogboe has sued Emanuel ‘Gameboy’ Tagoe to the tune of GHC 1 million for defamation of character.

Isaac Dogboe and Gameboy are emerging as the biggest boxing rivals in the country at the moment and the latter fueled the rivalry by throwing a challenge to the former after defeating the Argentine David Saucedo last month.

Asamoah Gyan is even quoted saying he would make the prize money available for the two boxers to battle it out.

Gameboy who is determined for a fight against Dogboe has allegedly accused Isaac Dogboe’s father of defrauding some prominent Ghanaian personalities.

"He has been going round defrauding people, Ibrahim Mahama, he defrauded him. He goes around with his son promising to do this or that and absconds. He recently defrauded someone also in the volta region," Tagoe was quoted in the suit as saying on Happy FM.
