Ghana’s ever youngest WBO Super Bantamweight champion Isaac ‘The Royal Storm’ Dogboe was accorded a heroic welcome on Tuesday evening as hundreds of supporters thronged to the Kotoka International Airport to honour his safe return back home.

The supporters who were clad in the national colours and shirts with inscriptions of Isaac Dogboe sang, danced and chanted the name of the boxer who made history as the youngest Ghanaian boxer to have won a World title.

Dogboe 23, won Ghana’s eighth World title after stopping Mexico’s Jessie Magdaleno to win the WBO World super bantamweight belt.

He dropped the then champion three times in an 11th-round knockout victory to win a junior featherweight ... Magdaleno (25-1, 18 KOs) on April 28 at the Liacouras Center on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia.

Addressing the ecstatic fans upon arrival, Dogboe commended Ghanaians for the continued support and expressed the hope that his victory  will open doors for other boxers to get more world title bouts and bring home titles.



Dogboe dedicated the victory to God whom, he believes handed him victory over Jessie Magdaleno.

“Saturday was a great night of boxing and like I keep saying, the battle belongs to the Lord. The voice of the people is the voice of God and God heard the prayers of the people and he delivered. I’m lost for words and all I can say is, let’s give glory to God. Let’s all celebrate. Ghana has a new world champion and that champion is the Lord himself. We believe that the drought is over and from here on if all the athletes work hard and go out there with fairness they will be able to bring something home”, Dogboe remarked.

Dogboe who represented Ghana at the London 2012 Olympics was holding an interim WBO world super bantamweight was challenging full WBO super bantamweight champion Magdaleno.

The win for Isaac Dogboe (19-0, 13 KOs) on Saturday becomes his eighth world title for Ghana after several failed attempts in recent years.

The bout was staged at the Liacouras Center on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia.
