The WBO African boxer of the year will face off with Argentine Javier Chacon on 22nd July at the Bukom Boxing Arena
Isaac Dogboe (16-0, 10 KO’s) WBO super bantamweight world title eliminator bought against Javier Chacon (25-3-1, 7 KO’s) from Argentina was announced on Wednesday at the Airport View Hotel by Rising Star Africa Promotions.
The bout which will pave way for the winner to fight in the actual WBO world title fight has been slated at 22nd July at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
Dogboe will also defend his WBO international super bantamweight belt, a title he won last year December after stopping Julian Evaristo Aristule in round seven.
“Rising Star Africa Promotions presents the battle to Vegas, Dogboe vs Chacon has been finalized,” Dogboe, who happens to be the CEO of Rising Star Africa Promotions announced the fight.
“The stage is set, July 22nd at the Bukom Boxing Arena the fight is on, it is final eliminator fight and i have this opportunity also to defend my WBO international super bantamweight title, it is not an easy challenge and we appreciate the challenge. It has not been easy getting an opponent because most of the opponents run away.”
Dogboe on his prediction against Chacon said: “Chacon is a tough boxer, but on that date when i step inside the ring, in round one i will try to knock him out, if it fails i will wait if the knock out presents itself i will go for it,” he added.
