Paul Dogboe, head of the technical team of former World Boxing Organization (WBO) Super Bantamweight champion, Isaac Dogboe has said, it will take more than strength and skills, to revenge against Mexican Emmanuel Navarrete in the return fight on May 11, at the Convention Centre in Arizona, United States of America (USA).

“Skill, style, stamina and strength alone do not make a champion, but well- rehearsed strategy and speed would be required to beat the opponent,” he added.

Addressing the press in Accra, before the fight, he said, Navarette was a good boxer and they had to go the extra mile to overcome him.

He however noted that, boxer Dogboe, was well conditioned for the fight, as he had had vigorous training at the beach of Keta in the Volta Region.

“Team Dogboe shall rise again, smile again and dance again. If Isaac is fully fit, no one can stand him pound for pound in his division,” he stressed.

According to him, his son’s fitness is back, his endurance was back and he would definitely bring back the title belt and then move up in weight to the Featherweight division.

Boxer Dogboe however admitted that he was complacent in the first fight and thought Navarrete was a push over.

“Many lessons have been learnt in the first and only loss, but in the next fight Navarrete would not go beyond four rounds,” he added.
