Former WBA welterweight champion Ike ‘Bazooka’ Quartey has stated unequivocally that Isaac ‘The Royal Storm’ Dogboe can rule the junior featherweight division for at least seven years based on his skill sets.

“For me, I want Dogboe to keep the title for a long time,” Ike Quartey told Dornu’s Corner – A popular Facebook boxing platform.

“With him at 23, I think he can keep the title for seven years because of the way he fight. He fights like he doesn’t fear anyone,” Ike Quartey who shot to fame on June 4, 1994 for stopping the then undefeated champion – Crisanto Espana via a technical knockout [TKO] at the Palais des Sports Marcel-Cerdan, Levallois in France spoke about Dogboe’s style of fight.

The ‘peek-a-boo’ defence specialist [Ike Quartey] predicted over a year ago that Isaac Dogboe was a world title prospect and was going to win the title for Ghana sooner than later.
