Newly-crowned WBO Super Bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe reckons his victory over Mexican boxer Jessie Magdaleno is an act of divinity.

According to the 23-year-old WBO titleholder, his triumph over Magdaleno who prior to the bout boasted of an undefeated record of 26 bouts with 18 being knockouts, is an answer to a nation’s yearn for a world champion.

Until Dogboe’s victory, Ghana had gone nearly a decade without a world title and Dogboe believes his win against Jessi Magdaleno will open the floodgates for other boxers to bring home world titles.

“Saturday was a great night of boxing and l like I keep saying, the battle belongs to the Lord. The voice of the people is the voice of God and God heard the prayers of the people and he delivered. I’m lost for words and all I can say is, let’s give glory to God. Let’s all celebrate. Ghana has a new world champion and that champion is the Lord himself. We believe that the drought is over and from here on if all the athletes work hard and go out there with fairness they will be able to bring something home”, Dogboe said on arrival at the airport.

Dogboe on Sunday became Ghana's youngest ever boxing champion after knocking out Mexican-American Jessie Magdaleno in Philadelphia. The victory makes him the new WBO super bantamweight/junior featherweight titleholder.

Dogboe recovered from a first-round knockdown to give Jessie Magdaleno an eleventh round Technical Knock Out (TKO) to become Ghana's 8th world title winner.

Dogboe now has an impressive record of 19 fight, 0 defeats and 11 knockouts (19-0, 11 KOs)
