I'm Prepared To Retain My Title - Richard Commey
LISTEN DEC 14, 2019

It’s about to go down come Saturday 14, Dec at the famous Madison Square Garden, as big boys clash gloves in a quest to rule the world of boxing, in one of the most anticipated fight night of the year (2019).

In the co-main event, the IBF World Champion Richard Commey will defend his title against Teofimo Lopez. The champion described briefly how this year has treated him

“2019 has been a great year. I’ve worked so hard coming from Ghana. You know how it is. To get to this stage, man, just an amazing feeling.”

Seeing this as a marvellous achievement by the Ghanaian born James-Town native, he continued

“How many boxers have come from Ghana with a chance to fight in {The Garden} in the co-main event…God bless us, and I’m ready to retain my title. There is no way I’m going to lose.”

Teofimo Lopez, on the other hand, described the opportunity he’s got with excitement

“It’s a blessing. It’s a breathtaking moment. It’s just something I have to visualize and just know that, 22 years old, I have a great opportunity here to do a lot. I’m excited, man. What better way to finish off the year than fight in the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden, for my first world title, in New York? This is a moment right here.”

On the criticism from his last fight against Masayoshi Nakatani

“I think everybody needs something like that. I needed that. Everything happens for a reason. I take everything they try to throw at me negatively and turn it into a positive. You can’t faze me. You can’t bring me down. I’m here for a reason. Teofimo is doing what he’s doing come Saturday night. We’re going to go out there and take over. I have vengeance in me. I’m holding that, holding everything. I want to shut everyone up the best way I can, and that’s doing what I do best.”

“God didn’t bring us this far for nothing. I didn’t come out here just to talk my smack and not back it up. We’re gonna do what we have to do. Richard Commey is a {former} world champion for a reason. And we know that it’s going to be a great and exciting fight.”

The stage is set, the boxers are ready, the world is ready, but all can’t wait any longer for the battle to begin.

Let’s get ready to rumble!!!
