Ghana’s Isaac Dogboe concedes that he could not urge himself to the highest possible point of his abilities in his attempt to win the vacant WBO featherweight title on Saturday against Cuban boxer, Robeisy Ramirez.
The two boxers clashed in Tulsa, Oklahoma to see who could get their hands on the belt and in the end, it was Ramirez who got the belt via a unanimous 117-110, 118,109 and 119-108 decision on the judges’ cards.
After the bout, Dogboe recognised what went wrong for him and said that he could not find the needed extra gear that would have handed him the win but he was grateful for the chance to fight for the belt and stated that he would want another shot at the championship in future.
“First of all, I would like to thank God almighty for the opportunity and coming out of the ring safely. I would like to thank my coaches and my team and everyone who supported me. Thirdly, I would like to apolpgise to my coaches and the rest of my team.
“We did not get the decision today but we will definitely be back. We still have a lot of work to do. I fell short tonight. Congratulations to Robeisy Ramirez. He is a terrific fighter. I won’t take anything from him. I guess I was the aggressor but maybe I was not aggresive enough. I could not push as hard as my coach (Barry Hunter) would have loved me to push but I will be back.”
The loss was Dogboe’s 3rd of his career after suffering two defeats to Emmanuel Navarrete; one as defending champion and the other as he sought to get his title back from the Mexican.
