I do not want anything from my son, all I ask is he pays his debts- Isaac Dogboe’s father
Paul Dogboe, Isaac Dogboe's father, has apologized for the massive debts he racked up while managing the Ghanaian boxer.
In a statement made two years ago, Isaac Dogboe claimed that the choice to no longer use his father as his manager was mutual.
Paul Dogboe discussed how many of Isaac Dogboe's fights had been sponsored in an exclusive interview with Happy FM's Wamputu Sports, as well as how difficult it had been for him to make ends meet ever since their breakup.
2When I was still Isaac Dogboe's trainer, I took out loans to pay for his fights. To establish Isaac as a global brand, it took over 11 years of investments and arduous work.
I recently experienced embarrassment at the airport due to a lawsuit regarding unpaid debts that were used to pay for Isaac's fights. We received a lot of sponsorship from people like Uncle Mitch and others who contributed and paid for Isaac's fights. My only request of my son is that he pay his obligations; I don't want anything else.
Doboe lost the vacant WBO featherweight title to Cuban boxer Robeisy Ramirez back in April, but he promised to bounce back spectacularly in the aftermath of the fight.
In Tulsa, Oklahoma, the two contestants engaged in their championship match.
Final judges' scores were 117-110, 118, 109, and 119-108, giving Ramirez the victory and the championship. Dogboe later acknowledged his mistakes and said he was unable to locate the extra equipment that would have given him the upper hand.
However, he was grateful for the chance to compete for the title and stated he would like to give it another go in the future. Here are his comments following the game:
"First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude to God Almighty for the chance and for allowing me to exit the ring safely. I want to express my gratitude to my coaches, my team, and everyone else who has helped me. Thirdly, I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches, and coaches.
Although we did not receive a decision today, we will absolutely return. There is still much work to be done. I failed tonight.
Best wishes to Robeisy Ramirez. He is an excellent fighter. I'm not going to steal from him. Although I believe I was the aggressor, perhaps I wasn't aggressive enough. I was unable to push myself as much as my coach, Barry Hunter, would have liked, but I will return.
