The young Ghanaian boxer, Isaac Dogboe, popularly referred to as the Royal Storm, says he owes a lot to Ghana as his homeland, however, he is equally grateful to Great Britain as he has lived many years of his life there.
The WBO Super Bantamweight title holder says he is excited to have been raised in Ghana and Great Britain.
In an interview on TV3 on Thursday, August 30, Dogboe said: “I was born in Ghana, Ghana is my root. Without Ghana, I don’t know where I would have been. A tree has to grow from its roots. So, I owe a lot to Ghana, because that’s my root.
“I also thank Great Britain, I was raised in Great Britain. It’s a privilege, to come from Ghana, live in the UK, school in the UK, do everything in the UK, you know, and for free! It’s a blessing!”
Dogboe says, to leave everything in the UK and come back to Ghana where he is rooted, he leaves where his identity lies to be judged individually.
Isaac Dogboe won the WBO Super Bantamweight title in April this year, and defended it against Hidenori Otake from Japan last weekend.
