Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings has charged Ghanaian boxer, Isaac Dogbe to replicate the remarkable feat that was chalked by legendary pugilist Azumah Nelson during his prime.
Rawlings, who was the manager of Azumah en-route to the latter becoming WBC featherweight world champion, believes Dogbe has what it takes to be world champion in that same division and hence admonished him to go all out for the title.
Speaking to the media after Isaac Dogbe had knocked-out foul-mouthed Ugandan boxer, Edward Kakembo, The maverick former president labeled the physical make-up of Ghanaians as one of the reason we excel at that weight division in boxing.
“Dogbe now has a responsibility to carry on from where Azumah Nelson left off. Let’s give him all our support to make sure that he captures the world Featherweight title.
“The Heavyweight division very often belongs to the Black Americans because of their size but the world knows that the Featherweight Division belongs to Ghana.” JJ Rawlings said.
Britain based Ghanaian boxer, Isaac Dogbe, pummeled Edward Kakembo into submission in the 6th round despite Kakembo’s claims that he was going to maul Dogbe and chain him like a dog.
