Ghana’s WBO super bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe nick-named the ”Royal Storm” took home a whopping amount of $65,000 after knocking out Japan’s Hidenori Otake in round one.
The bout took place on Saturday night at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, USA.
Dogboe (20-0, 14 KOs) knocked the ageing Otake down twice and then battered him until referee Patrick Morley was forced to intervene to stop the slaughter, as the Ghanaian star proved too strong for Japan’s Hidenori Otake.
According to ESPN’s Dan Rafael, Dogboe took home $65,000 for his night’s exertions while Otake earned $25,000.
Immediately after Otake’s win, Dogboe called out WBA world super bantamweight boxers Danny Roman and Rey Vargas but might have to wait to make that happen.
“Now I want to face all the champs. Let’s do this! I’m ready to unify all the titles,” he said. “I want all the champions out there, Rey Vargas, Danny Roman. Step up to the plate, let’s make this happen. They should come forward and make a great fight. Champions should fight the best.”
Top Rank’s Vice-president Carl Moretti intimated to ESPN that the 23-year-old star could be back in the ring before the year is over.
“I thought it was going to be a long rest after this fight because I thought we were in for a long fight, but given what happened, I’d like to get him in by the end of the year,” Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti said of Dogboe.
