Commey: Mikey Garcia Knew it Was a Massive Risk To Fight Me

By Chris Glover

Richard Commey is raring to go as news recently broke that he will contest the IBF world lightweight title against Russia’s Isa Chaniev.

The IBF version of the world lightweight strap had been previously held by the excellent Mikey Garcia, who it appears, has chosen to move up in weight to fight Errol Spence instead of defending his title against his mandatory challenger, Commey.

Commey opened up on his thoughts regarding Garcia vacating his title and the fight against the Southern Californian not coming to fruition.

The Ghanaian puncher said, “I’m disappointed that the fight with Mikey Garcia hasn’t happened. He is a very good fighter and I was looking forward to challenging myself against one of the best fighters out there.

“My Management and Promotional team of Michael Amoo-Bediako and Lou DiBella worked very hard to try and make the Garcia fight. It disappointed me that Garcia’s team let negotiations drag on when they had no intention of fighting. I understand it is because they know it is a massive risk to fight me and lose any potential big paydays in the future.”

Commey will now move on from the Garcia saga and will turn his attention to capturing the IBF crown and will face IBF #3 ranked Isa Chaniev of Russia who outpointed Ismael Barroso over 12 rounds in his last outing.

He said, “I am always in entertaining fights and I am continuing to improve under my trainer Andre Rozier. Chaniev comes to fight as do I so I’m sure this will be an exciting fight but there is only one winner on the night and that is Richard Commey.

“It doesn’t really matter to me who is in the other corner I will fight anyone and fulfil my destiny and become a world champion.

“Unlike some fighters, I will fight anyone, anytime and when I become world champion I will defend my title against the best opposition out there!”

[QUOTE=Shadoww702;19266218]That was hilarious I admit but not as HILARIOUS as seeing Hugachenko who was a HUGE favorite lose to an ubber driver. And he kept hugging Salido that I couldnt tell if he wanted to fight him or fuk him.[/QUOTE]…
