Ghanaian boxer, Anma Dotse, has vowed to shorten the reign of West African lightweight boxing king, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph when they both clash at GOtv Boxing 11 on March 26.
The duo will clash in a West African Boxing Union lightweight title fight at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, now Liberty Stadium, Ibadan.
Dotse, highly rated in Ghana, said the title is not only for grab but would also avenge the defeat of numerous Ghanaian boxers in Nigeria.
According to Dotse, Ghana is still Africa’s boxing powerhouse. “I feel embarrassed that Nigerian boxers will wake up from nowhere and want to claim dominance. Joe Boy’s time is up and I am coming to end his premature reign,” he boasts.
