Ukrainian boxing superstar, Vasiliy Lomachenko, says is expecting an interesting challenge when he fights Richard Commey.

The two face off on December 12 at the Madison Square Garden.

Both fighters lost their world titles to Teofimo Lopez, and are on their individual quests to win them back.

The former dual world champion, Lomachenko, last fought in June, knocking out Masayoshi Nakatani in nine rounds, and will be looking to take down, Ghana’s Richard Commey on Sunday.

“Richard Commey has big power, reach and experience. This is an interesting challenge for me, and I know it’s a fight the fans are excited to watch,” Lomachenko said.

“I am 100 per cent healthy and ready for Saturday night. I can’t wait. Madison Square Garden is like a second home for me. So many great moments in my career have taken place at Madison Square Garden.

“I won the lightweight title against Jorge Linares in that arena, so returning there brings back many great memories.

“My goals keep me motivated, one of which is to become the undisputed champion. Commey is one of the division’s most dangerous fighters, and he is the one standing in my way.”
