The former Olympian had a workout with his father and trainer Paul Dogboe which lasted close to 35 minutes. The 22 year-old hard puncher also had 20 minutes of shadow boxing.

Dogboe was joined by undecard fighters that include, Wassiu Mohammed, Enoch Lamptey, Prince Oko Nartey and Agyemang Prempeh.

“We have less than three weeks for the fight, and preparations has been great. I’m ready for Chacon”, Dogboe told Ghanacrusader.

“Chacon is the last person i have to clear before getting a shot at the world title and believe me he will go down on July 22nd. It is going to be a great fight because Chacon is an experience fighter, he has challenged for the world title before but irrespective of that he will surely go down.”

“I want my fans to fill the arena on July 22nd because i will make them proud and also defend the flag of Ghana.”

Dogboe, who holds a record 16 wins from 16 fights, is expected to slug it out with the Argentinian (25 wins, 3 loss and a draw in 29 fights) in a Final Eliminator towards a world title shot.
