Dogboe popularly called “Royal Storm” described the bout as "David and Goliath” affair, referring his opponent as Goliath.
The 23-year-old former Olympian said “my opponent has lost five times in his career and I’ll increase it to six on January 6 and nothing is stopping me from doing that.
“This is a matter of a David and Goliath affair in the ring and I am ready for the challenge. I don't care about what Juarez camp thinks of me but I will prove my worth on the night to the people of Mexico.
“I can't miss an opportunity of this nature because I have been waiting for this throughout my career. This is the time to send a signal to the entire world about Ghana's prowess in boxing,” Dogboe the “Royal Storm" said.
When asked whether he was under pressure to deliver the title, he said “I’m not under pressure to deliver. I believe in myself and I know I’ll emerge victorious that day. I believe in my father’s strategy and on that day, we will conquer”.
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Elvis Baah, assured of the Ministry’s support for the bout.
