Ghana’s Richard Commey now IBF number 6

Ghana world title hopeful, Richard Commey, has moved to 6th in the lightweight division in the latest International Boxing Federation (IBF) ranking for the month of June.

Commey last month was ranked number 8 but he has now moved two places up to the 6th position.

The James Town native last year was IBF’s number 1, but after failing to win the belt when he lost via a disputed split decision to Robert Easter Jr. dropped to 10th.

However, in less than a year, the Ghanaian has moved four places up and he could get a second shot at the IBF belt.
