‘Grant me rematch if you’re a true champion’ – Dogboe challenges Ramirez

Ghanaian boxer Isaac Dogboe has challenged Robeisy Ramirez to a rematch after losing to the Cuban pugilist.

Isaac Dogboe challenges Ramirez to rematch after losing WBO Featherweight title

Dogboe had the chance to annex the WBO Featherweight world title but was defeated by Ramirez by a unanimous decision on Saturday.

The 28-year-old was dominated by his opponent and couldn’t recover from a shaky start, with the judges scoring the bout 117-110, 118-109, and 119-108 all in favour of Ramirez.

Dogboe showed respect to his opponent in the aftermath of the bout, describing him as a terrific fighter, but was quick to disregard the result of the fight.


Despite losing out on the WBO Featherweight world title, the Ghanaian challenged Ramirez to show he’s a true champion by granting a rematch.

“All I have to say is, God is still king, praise be to the Lord Almighty. I thank God for this opportunity once again,” the boxer said, as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“But you know what, Robeisy Ramirez is a terrific fighter but the result is bullshit. That knockdown was no knockdown. You talk about dictatorship, that was a dictatorship result right there.”

“Let’s run it back, that’s all I can says, it’s a re-match. If he is a true champion, let’s run it back for Cuba and for the rest of the people he claims to represent.”


Meanwhile, Dogboe has now lost three times in his professional boxing career, having been involved in 27 fights.
