Richard Commey wraps up Russia’s Isa Chaniev in just 220 seconds, wins IBF Lightweight World title in second attempt.
Clearly, Ghana’s new and ninth(9th) world champion, Richard Oblittey Commey, was in no pampering mood, as he fiercely inflicted thunderous rounds of punches on Russia’s Isa Chaniev to win the vacant IBF Lightweight belt, two rounds into the night.
Richard, who lost thinly on his first attempt to Robert Easter jnr, took no chances, starting the bout on a highly aggressive note, with some silky display of power punch combinations.
Chaniev, who looked worked up could no longer hold on, as a punitive left hook delivered straight into his face got him flat on the canvas, in the final seconds of the first round.
Thankfully, he got the bell saving him from further afflictions.
In the second round, Commey dropped Chaniev again in the first ten(10) seconds after a neat combinations of both left and right hooks.
At this point, Chaniev had lost steel but beat the ten(10) seconds count to remain in the fight.
Commey, having no sympathy for the ‘weak’ Chaniev, unleashed series of power punches into the body and face of his opponent who appeared to have surrendered his might in the ring.
Cautiously, the referee stepped in to end the fight in just forty(40)seconds into the second(2nd) round.
Richard Oblittey Commey won the night in a technical knockout and now has the opportunity of unifying his division on April 12 against Vasyl Lomachenko.
