Commey: I'll Use My Boxing Skills, Stay Smart To Beat Shafikov

London, England - Former world title challenger RICHARD COMMEY, (24-1-0, 22 KO’s) of Accra, Ghana heads to Moscow, Russia on Friday, December 2, 2016 for a showdown with fellow former world title challenger DENIS SHAFIKOV, (37-2-1, 20 KO’s) facing off in a 12-round IBF Lightweight World Title Eliminator.
 
“I’m ready, we’ve known about this fight for a long time so I’ve been training hard at home in preparation,” said the 29-year-old Commey.
 
This past September 9th, Commey traveled to Reading, Pennsylvania to challenge Robert Easter Jr. for the vacant IBF Lightweight World Title, losing by a very close, controversial split decision.

“Of course I won that fight, but I’m following the declaration of the IBF and facing Shafikov for the right to challenge Easter for the belt again. That’s what I’m after, another shot at Easter,” said Commey.
 
“I’ve seen Shafikov fight, he’s very aggressive and I’ll need to use my boxing skills and be smart to win.”
 
Said manager MICKEY AMOO-BEDIAKO SR. of Streetwise Management, “While we were very disappointed in the Easter fight, we’re thankful that the IBF gave us this opportunity to fight in the eliminator. That’s all Richard wants, the chance to prove he’s a true world champion.”
 
“No issue on our part going to Russia, a ring is a ring. Richard’s fought all over Europe and South Africa, he’ll be victorious on December 2.”
