Former World Boxing Champion, Azumah Nelson, has advised Isaac Dogboe to quit boxing for two to three years and either go back to school or train harder.
His advice follows the humiliating loss suffered at the hands of hard-hitting Mexican, Emanuel Navarrete in Tucson, Arizona on Sunday.
The former champion advised Dogboe to forget boxing for now and learn a lot from his mistakes but not to retire completely.
In an interview , he said Team Dogboe should have waited a little longer for the rematch. “Dogboe is still young; he is just 23 years and can still come back. It is not by force to fight again, he needs to relax for two to three years and learn from his mistakes. He should forget about boxing for now because he needs to learn more about defense. He should go back to school and learn,” he added.
He further stated that Dogboe’s father, Paul Dogboe should stop running the son’s career as family business and get a professional trainer.
“They are running a family affair business. I was gifted with boxing and if you believe in me or think I am experienced enough to advise you, I will advise you,” he noted.
The former World Boxing Council Super Featherweight champion advised all Ghanaian boxers to learn something from Dogboe’s defeat.
According to him, his team rushed for the rematch after his defeat and he thinks Dogboe has a lot to learn, especially defense strategies.
