President of the Ghana Boxing Authority, Peter Zwennes has revealed that he is not surprised at the “lack of preparations” comments from the camp of Ghana’s youngest World Champion Isaac Dogboe which led to the loss of his title last Sunday.
Dogbe lost his WBO Bantamweight title last Sunday to his Mexican counterpart Emmanuel Navarette Martinez at the Madison Square Gardens in New York, USA.
In an interview, Mr. Zwennes maintained that he is not in any way surprised at comments from the corner of the boxer that he had little preparations ahead of the bout.
According to Zwennes, it was evident during the bout.
“I wasn’t surprised they raise the issue of lack of good preparedness for this particular fight and I think it was evident from the way the fight went. For a much taller opponent, you need to crouch him and get to his body and stay close to him and prevent him from firing all those jabs and shots but its wasn’t happening” he noted.
Mr. Peter Zwennes further expressed optimism that the youngster would be back on his feet stronger.
“…we need to console and counsel him and tell him all is not lost. I believe he will come back and get to the drawing and do things quickly.we are ready to do our best to get him back to winning ways”
