IBF Lightweight Titlist 🇬🇭Richard “RC” Commey (29-2-0, 26KO) authored up the signature moment of his career thus far as he overwhelmed respected veteran warrior 🇺🇸Ray Beltran (36-9-0, 22KO) early and often, putting the 38 year old Beltran down 2 times in the first round and nearly getting the knockout victory in the first stanza, but Beltran as we are normally accustomed to by now, fought himself out of trouble and back in the fight…

There is word getting out that Unified WBA/WBO Lightweight Champion ♛🥇🥇🇺🇦Vasiliy ‘Hi-Tech’ Lomachenko (12-1-0, 9KO) has been granted a postponement by the WBA to bypass their mandatory for his next fight, which would be Manchester England’s 🇬🇧Anthony Crolla.
With this being the case, this opens up lanes for Lomachenko to continue to look at the prospects of another unification fight with newly-crowned IBF World-Titlist 🇬🇭Richard Commey (28-2-0, 25KO) to take place next.
The complications however for this match-up is that Commey injured his right hand in his title-fight on Saturday, February 2nd, and is awaiting the results of an MRI on his hand to gauge the severity of the injury. If everything does however check out, the WBA will be in accordance with Vasiliy’s move towards another unifier, as long as that fight takes place no later than an April date, which works well given the tentative date of Lomachenko’s next fight being April 12th.

Ghanaian-born Richard Commey (28-2-0, 25KO) electrified the audience by dominating Russia’s Isa Chaniev (13-2-0, 6KO), putting him down with a sledgehammer left hook that crumbled him in the 2nd round.
Though Chaniev got up, Commey went in for the finish, pummeling him with a barrage of punches, as Referee Laurence Cole stepped in to stop the fight as he slumped down to the canvas, making Commey the IBF Lightweight Champion.
Hats off to Commey for becoming a world titlist and adding to the group of boxers in years past from Ghana that has done the same.
The worst kept secret in boxing is that P4P #1 & unified WBA/WBO Lightweight Champion Vasiliy ‘Hi-Tech’ Lomachenko (12-1-0, 9KO) has tunnel-vision on collecting all 4 world title belts en-route to becoming Undisputed Lightweight Champion, and now that Commey holds one of the belts he covets, there is a high possibility that a fight with Commey may be produced next.
