International Boxing Federation (IBF) lightweight champion, Richard Commey will on Sunday defend his title against Teofimo Lopez at the Madison Square Gardens.
The bout will be his second defense since claiming the title in emphatic style against Isa Chaniev in February 2019.
His opponent this is a 22-year old Honduran-American who is unbeaten in fourteen professional fights and likened to Floyd Mayweather due to his technique and style of fighting.
Just three of his bouts traveled full length as he boasts of eleven career knockouts.
Interestingly enough, the bout isn’t the main event as Terence Crawford defends his World Boxing Organization(WBO) Welterweight title against Egidijus Kavaliauskas.
Both boxers with sights on the WBO title are unbeaten in the boxing careers and have everything to fight for at the Gardens.
Meanwhile, Richard Commey will continue his quest to add his name to a legacy of Ghanaian boxers who have dominated the sport.
