Top boxing promoter and manager, Alex Ntiamoah Boakye of Box Office Promotions, has advised former world champion Isaac Dogboe to entreat his promoters to negotiate a good deal that will fetch him a lot of money in his next bout.
Mr Ntiamoah Boakye, who once promoted Dogboe, 27, on his bill said the come-back-kid was now spoilt for choice and must accrue the needed financial benefits from it.
“He’s now gotten the shot at the World title, either the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) or the World Boxing Council (WBC) and so it is up to his promoters to negotiate what is favourable for him monetary wise,” he told the Graphic Sports in an interview in Accra.
He called on Dogboe, who has a professional record of 26 bouts with two losses in 28 bouts, to make good money from his labour as he had little to do with money during his nascent professional stages and even when he won the world title.
“Boxing is all about money and the business aspect is very important, he should and must not overlook that, it will help him eke out a living after he quits the sport,” Mr Ntiamoah told the Graphic Sports.
Dogboe, who was raised in the UK, secured his fourth win in a row against American Joet Gonzalez following back-to-back losses to Mexican Emanuel Navarrete between 2018 and 2019.
