“My manager Michael Amoo-Bediako was in (New York City) this weekend. He held discussion with Lou DiBella and what I know is that I will more than likely defend my title sometime in June in a voluntary then hopefully something big after that. Therefore, I want to be 100% when I face Lomachenko and give Ghana a great victory in the spirit of the great Azumah Nelson. My goals extend beyond Lomachenko. The landscape in the lightweight division is changing,” Commey said.
“Will Mikey Garcia return? I am also eyeing the Robert Easter Jr.-Rances Barthelemy contest for the WBA lightweight regular title (on April 27). If Easter were to win, a unification bout in a rematch would be massive,” he added.
Richard Commey won IBF title in a fight with Russia boxer Isa Chaniev. The winner had to meet with Lomachenko, but Commey got injured in a fight with Russian and the fight with Lomachenko was postponed.
