Korean-Ukrainean fighter Arnold Khegai says he is keen to take on Ghana-born UK-based WBO Super Bantamweight Champion Isaac Dogboe.
Khegai, the #12 rated WBO contender, holds a record of 13-0-1 (9 KOs) and has called out Dogboe, who this past weekend stopped Hiednori Otake to defend his world title.
“I feel I am the best super bantamweight in the world!” said the confident Khegai, who also impressed the boxing world in May with a dominant unanimous decision over well-respected contender Adam Lopez.
“I want to prove my point by fighting the most avoided fighters in the division. Bring on Dogboe!”
Khegai continued, “I know Isaac had an impressive victory and I commend him for that. But I will gladly fight him. I know I can’t be beat at this weight and I’ll fight anyone to prove it.”
“Arnold is a blue-chip contender on his way to becoming a dominant name in the super bantamweight division,” said his promoter, Dmitriy Salita.
“Not only does he have the skills and power, but most importantly, he has the desire to fight the best. That is a complete package.”
The 23-year-old Dogboe, who was born in Accra but fights out of London in the UK, has a professional record of 20-0-0 (14 KOs) and is known by the nickname ‘Brave Son’.
