Isaac Dogboe was named Sports Personality of the Year on Friday by the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) at their 43rd Awards Night.
The awards which came off at the International Conference Center saw the 23 year-old boxer claimed the top award.
Dogboe was awarded for his role in international boxing by lifting the flag of Ghana high.
The year under review, Dogboe won two international belts – he defeated Julian Aristo to win the WBO international super bantamweight belt and also stopped Cesar Juarez to win the vacant interim WBO world super bantamweight strap.
He also won the Professional Boxer of The Year beating off competition from Duke Micah.
Last week, he became Ghana’s eighth world champion by stopping then champion Jessie Magdaleno in round 11 to win the WBO world super bantamweight belt.
After winning the award, the former Olympian took to twitter to express his delight.
