Isaac Dogboe: I Want To Be a Five or Six Weight Champion

WBO super bantamweight world champion Isaac Dogboe (19-0, 13 KOs) is looking for big game - and more world titles.

Standing at only 5'2, Dogboe still intends to move up several times over.

He arrived on the scene back in April, when he traveled to the United States to score an eleventh round knockout victory over undefeated champion Jessie Magdaleno. Dogboe went down in the first round, but rallied to drop Magdaleno three times for the knockout win.

The victory over Magdaleno made him the youngest ever champion in Ghana's boxing history.

Top Rank is bringing him back on August 25th in a voluntary defense. 

Magdaleno has been asking for a rematch, but Dogboe reveals that his former foe is actually planning to move up to the featherweight limit of 126-pounds.

"Magdaleno keeps posting things about a rematch, but I've been told his camp don't want to fight me right now," Dogboe told Sky Sports.

"I've said 'You're a nice guy, Jessie, I don't mind fighting any day, any time' but his team think I'm too dangerous for him. Apparently he will move up in weight and, hopefully, we can meet again at featherweight.

"That's my plan eventually, as well. I make super-bantam easily and am strong, but I'm looking forward to moving up and flying through the divisions. I want to become a five or six weight world champion."

Before he moves up in weight, Dogboe is looking to challenge himself in a showdown with the other champions of his weight class.

" I want the big names in boxing and the top guys in my division right now are Daniel Roman (WBA), Rey Vargas (WBC) and Ryosuke Iwasa (IBF) - that's who I want to face! A lot of people assumed Magdaleno would beat me easily with his hand speed and southpaw stance - I was sidelined. But we knew what we had to do to win that fight and we weren't going to let the opportunity slip through our hands," Dogboe said.
