Ghanaian boxer Richard Oblitey Commey has set his target on ranking number one in the world and reclaiming his title.
Oblitey Commey who fights with the moniker ‘Azonto’ lost his IBF Lightweight title to Teofimo Lopez back in December 2019 in a second round technical knockout at the famous Madison Square Gardens, United States of America.
The 33-year-old boxer labelled 2020 as his year of redemption to reclaim his lost glory but the advent of the novel coronavirus has scuppered his realizing his dreams this year in the forseaable future.
Reacting to Boxing News’ latest publication, where he was ranked number 4, Commey iterated he is content with the position in the interim but aspires to take back his title and secure the number one berth.
The rankings by the Award-winning world’s best boxing magazine sees Ukrainian Vasyl Lomaschenko occupying the number one spot with American Teofimo Lopez in second position followed by English boxer Luke Campbell all coming before Commey.
Just seen this in the @BoxingNewsED, Wow #4 in their world lightweight rankings, thank you and I’ll take that for now but my aim is to get to #1 and be a world champion again!!! @loudibella @Streetwisemgt @Mickey_Moo @trboxing 🥊🇬🇭👊🏿 pic.twitter.com/FNOIRoovRC
