Isaac Dogboe reveals boxers on his “hit list”

Newly crowned WBO champion Isaac Dogboe is still getting used to his new-found fame, after beating Jessie Magdaleno to claim the junior featherweight belt, but the Ghanaian is aiming for bigger bouts as early as August.

Three weeks after defeating Magdaleno in Philadelphia via TKO to become Ghana’s youngest boxing world champion, the 23-year-old is getting his head back in the ring, naming the likes of Rey Vargas and Daniel Roman as potential opponents.

The undefeated Dogboe (19-0), along with his ever-present father-slash-coach Paul, has set his sights on unifying the division and becoming the undisputed junior featherweight champ.

“At the moment, after my discussion with Top Rank, what my father made me understand it that in August I may go out in the ring again,” Dogboe tells KweséESPN.

“Afterwards we will be looking forward to unify the division, fight other world champions in the division and then from there we will see what is next.

“I would want to fight WBC champion Rey Vargas because he avoided me a while back… and there’s Ryosuke Iwasa of Japan, he is the IBF champion, plus Daniel Roman, he is the WBA champion. These are the guys on the hit list.”
