Dogboe's Coach: I Apologize To Mexicans, It Was Comical Talk

Paul Dogboe, the father and trainer of WBO interim-super bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe of Ghana, has apologized after causing an uproar with his recent statements regarding his son's upcoming opponent.

In a recent interview, Dogboe Sr. generated controversy after stating that his son would not only beat WBO full champion Jessie Magdaleno - but then in the aftermath would remove him from the United States by 'tossing him over the Mexican wall' - and then his son would present the world title to United States President Donald Trump.

"We are focused and our only mission is to devour him, eat the crazy chicken, throw him over the wall of Mexico and present the title to Donald Trump. Magdaleno will run when he sees Isaac," Dogboe Sr. told The Pulse of Ghana.


After getting some negative feedback regarding the statements, Dogboe Sr. apologized and explained that he was simply creating hype for the fight.

"I want to apologize to the Mexicans about throwing Magdaleno over the wall. It was just a comical talk, nothing personal. It was just to wake the Mexicans up to come and watch their champion get beat. I apologize if it was misinterpreted. I was only hyping the show," Dogboe Sr. told the Ghana Crusader.

The fight was originally scheduled to take place on April 14th, as part of the undercard to Terence Crawford vs. Jeff Horn at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

As reported on Wednesday, the fight was pushed back after Crawford suffered an injury and the entire April 14th card was scrapped.

The ESPN televised fight will now take place on April 28th in Philadelphia.

Magdaleno (25-0, 18 KOs), while coming from a Mexican background, was born and bred in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dogboe (18-0, 12 KOs), who represented Ghana in the 2012 Olympic games in London, secured the title shot with his unexpected knockout of dangerous Cesar Juarez in their final eliminator.  

Magdaleno was last seen in the ring back in April, when he made the first defense of his title with a stoppage of Adeilson Dos Santos.

If you're going to be a trash talker and say ignorant ****, then you should embrace whatever attention comes your way, good or bad. But Dogboe didn't even receive some huge backlash-- it was more of a matter of Dogboe…
