Ghana international David Accam was in the stands to support Isaac Dogboe in his WBO title bout on Saturday night in the United States.
Dogboe, known world-wide as the Royal Storm, was just too much for Magdaleno as he knocked him down three times before the match official stopped the bout in round 11.
The 23-year-old becomes the youngest world champion in Ghana’s rich boxing history tonight in Philadelphia.
And, Accam who recently moved to Philadelphia from Columbus Crew and plays for Philadelphia Union joined his Ghanaian compatriots to offer support to the powerful boxer.
Dogboe (19-0, 13 KO) had a rough beginning in round one, as Magdaleno (25-1, 18 KO) hammered the challenger in the opening round.
But Dogboe, who had never been knocked down before, shook it off and came on strong as the fight went forward knocking Magdaleno down with a piledriver in the 5th round.
Inside round 11, the moment of truth arrived when Dogboe unloaded an array of impressive jabs and furious punches on the title holder forcing him to taste the canvas again and again until the referee stopped the fight.
