Richard Commey To Be Ringside For Barthelemy vs. Bey

London, England - Top Rated and Undefeated Lightweight Contender Richard Commey, 24-0-0 (22KO’s) heads to Hollywood, Florida this week to attend the IBF World Lightweight Championship between champion Rances Barthelemy and former world champion Mickey Bey.
“I’m going because the belt they are fighting for will be the one around my waist in the near future,” said the 29-year-old Commey, originally from Accra, Ghana now based in London. “I’m next in line and can’t wait to prove to the world that I’m the best lightweight in the world.”
Currently ranked #3 with the top two positions being open, Commey will be facing the winner of the June 3rd showdown in the near future.

“Richard is ready, he’s been ready and when he’s given the chance he will be victorious,” said  
Michael Amoo-Bediako, Managing Director of Streetwise Management. “Richard has been an underdog in many of the fights he’s had but he’s always preserved and always won.
Commey made the most of his U.S. debut on May 22 2015, stopping once beaten Russian contender Bahodir Mamadjonov in the eighth round in Las Vegas. The brilliant nationally televised performance earned Commey the vacant IBF Inter-Continental Lightweight Title.
Shortly following his victory for the title, the IBF asked that he vacate the Inter-Continental Lightweight Title with the promise of a mandatory challenger position fight which has not taken place, therefore leaving Commey next in line to fight for their World Lightweight Title.
In his last two starts, Commey has scored two additional knockouts, a fifth round stoppage of Kakha Avetisiani on October 17, 2015 in Germany and a second round knockout of Anzor Gamgebeli on March 19, 2016 in Denmark.
“Ghana has produced many great champions such as Azumah Nelson and Ike Quartey, Richard is prepared to be the next one.”
