Ghana's world title hopeful, Isaac "Royal storm" Dogboe, stopped Cesar Juarez in the fifth round of their WBO Interim Super Bantamweight contest at the Bukom Boxing Arena, Accra.
Isaac Dogboe sent his first message of intention when he sent Cesar Juarez grappling on the canvas in Round 2 of the stipulated 12.
Having vowed earlier to tame the monster in Juarez and make history on the night, Isaac Dogboe was already on course to keeping his promise to set the chain of events leading to winning a world title for his homeland, a feat which has evaded the country in the last 20 years.
A stinging left hook to the jaw of Cesar Juarez was enough to send him to the canvas a second time and eventually end his night in the ring. A number of combinations of hooks and jabs from Isaac Dogboe ended the fight for Juarez in the 5th round
For Dogboe, it was his 18th victory of his unbeaten professional career. 12 of those 18 wins have come by knockout.
The victory sets up a mandatory clash with the title holder Jesse Magdaleno, whom he once sparred with in Las Vegas, sometime in 2018 and Dogboe called Magdaleno out.
“Jesse, I am coming for you, baby. You cannot hide anymore.”
