Richard Commey to face Alejandro Luna Saturday


Ghana’s Richard Commey will return to the ring this Saturday in Texas, USA against undefeated Alejandro Luna.

Commey-Luna clash will be IBF World lightweight eliminator – the winner will face IBF belt holder Robert Easter Jr.

“I think this is a good fight where neither of us are the favorite,” said Commey. “After losing two close decisions there is natural pressure to go for the knockout. But I believe that the judges will be fair and reward me if it goes the distance so I can earn another shot at the title. This is my first fight with Andre Rozier and I’m inspired working in his gym with guys like Daniel Jacobs and Sadam Ali. I’m 100 percent focused on clearly beating Luna and earning my rematch with Robert Easter Jr.”

Commey (25-2, 22 KO’s) and Luna (22-0, 15 KO’s) enter this fight ranked 11th and 3rd respectively by the IBF.

If Commey wins, he will set up a rematch against Easter. The Ghanaian lost to a close-split decision to Easter when the two fought for that vacant title back in 2016.
