There’s great demand for me to fight in the UK – Isaac Dogboe

Published

on



The 27-year-old made a fine start to the bout and landed a couple of heavy punches, which got Gonzalez dazed in the early exchanges.

On the judges’ card, Patrick Morley scored in favour of Gonzalez at 96-94, but Tim Cheatham and Mike Fitzgerald both had Dogboe as the winner on their cards by 96-94.

The boxer returned to Ghana on Thursday and has now revealed that there is a great demand for him to fight in the UK.

“We [my team and I] don’t know. I praise God that I have options,” Dogboe said, as quoted by 3Sports.

“My promoters have informed me that there is a great demand for me to fight in the United Kingdom. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

“The night after the fight, I called my promoters and asked them what was next. They told me, Isaac, to go home, rest, and then we’ll talk about the next fight.”

Dogboe was born in Ghana but spent the early years of his professional career in the UK, where he was based in London.

He annexed the Amateur Boxing Association British lightweight title in 2013 and faced Andy Harris at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall that same year.

However, he hasn’t fought in the UK since, although that is a possibility, now that he’s in line for a title.

NPP will go to court if Bagbin fails to declare Adwoa Safo’s seat vacant – Joe Wise

Published

The seat of Dome Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo has been in contention over the past months due to her prolonged absence from Parliament.

According to Mr. Osei-Owusu, he will be surprised if the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin rules against the recommendation of his committee over the seat of Dome-Kwabenya lawmaker, Mad. Sarah Adwoa Safo.

“Some members may seek court interpretation if the Speaker rules in variance to the recommendation to have the Dome-Kwabenya seat declared vacant,” the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Chairman of Parliament’s Privileges Committee told the media.

The Committee of Privileges in Parliament has by a majority decision recommended that the Dome-Kwabenya Parliamentary seat, currently being occupied by Sarah Adwoa Safo, should be declared vacant for having absented herself from Parliament for more than 42 days without permission from the Speaker.

In a post on social media, the embattled Adwoa Safo said there’s a witch-hunt from members of her party members.

In a Facebook post, she could not comprehend why the members of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition are refusing to protect her because being absent from her official duties albeit not intentionally.

She said “We did this on compassionate grounds because it involved Children and didn’t go round making hue and cry about her absence.”

This has left me asking myself if this is happening because I am a woman who for just this one time needed some time off to deal with a few personal issues which were too dear to share with the larger public.

“In the face of all these, I have questioned why I have had to be treated differently by not enjoying the famous support of our party leadership both in Parliament and at the party level in my most difficult moments these past few months,” Adwoa Safo stressed.

She noted that “as a member of the party, I have served with utmost diligence (both in opposition and in government) and have at all times put the fortunes of my family at the disposal of the party.
