Some Ghanaians also said Isaac Dogboe’s career may be short-lived due to his height disadvantage but the boxer has shook off that claim as well.
What remains unverified is whether the boxer has been losing since visiting President Akufo-Addo.
@gloveleslie claimed: Since this guy sent his title to the Jubilee House, his life has never been the same. Be careful of the people you associate your success with.
This comes two nights after Dogboe suffered his latest defeat in the WBC featherweight title to Nick Ball in the final eliminator in Manchester, United Kingdom.
Dogboe suffered a unanimous defeat after all three judges scored in favour of Ball 116-111, 118-109, and 119-108.
This is his fourth defeat.
Dogboe recently lost to Robeisy Ramirez in his bid to win world title.
He lost in back-to-back fights against Emmanuel Navarrete in WBO Junior Lightweight division before a defeat to Ramirez in the the WBO Featherweight title.

Dogboe recovered from round one knockdown to drop Magdaleno three times enroute to round 11 stoppage. The fight came off in April 2018 in Philadelphia, USA.
Dogboe was accompanied by his dad and now former trainer Paul Dogboe and management team to the Jubilee House.

According to some social media commentators, Dogboe has lost all his bouts since that visit.
