Boxing: Pappoe and Dogoe set for grudge fight

Listen to article

A grudge will explode on February 20 when Michael Pappoe faces rising prospect Isaac Dogboe.

The featherweight clash could be an early contender for fight of the year with Pappoe( 13-2-12 KO's) eying Dogboe's WBA Pan-Africa and WBO Africa featherweight crowns.

'Dogboe is nobody to me, he should get prepared because he is about to face Michael Pappoe,' he told

'This is the perfect time for me to be a champion. I have watched Dogboe's fight several times and he should get himself prepared.

'All the boxers Dogboe had fought are not worth my time. I watched his last bout at the Accra Sports Stadium and I told myself that I can beat him and this is the time.

'I'm a person that I smells boxing, eat boxing, drinks boxing and sleeps boxing. Boxing is my life and Dogboe can't stop me in taking the two titles from him. Host of boxers have ran away from me whenever they hear they are going to fight me because they know I'm a dangerous guy.'

Dogboe (9-0-5 KO's) has taken the local boxing scene by storm since he turned professional after a sterling amateur career and has been tipped to become Ghana's next featherweight world champion after Azumah Nelson.

The fight is scheduled to take place at the Azumah Nelson Sports Complex
