Ghana’s lightweight contender Richard Commey (24-2,22 KO's) will fight in Accra in  March.

It will be promoted by Streetwise Boxing Promotions owned by UK-based Ghanaian Michael Amoo-Bediako, can confirm.

The hard hitting Commey will be fighting infront of his home crowd for the first time in three years after stopping Prince Ofosu to win the vacant African Boxing Union (ABU) Lightweight title.

“Richard Commey will return into the ring March next year and he will fight in Ghana,” Commey’s trainer Carl Lokko told

“Since 2013 Commey hasn’t fought in Ghana, and most of his Ghanaian fans have missed him so it will be an opportunity for them to see him fight again in Ghana, he added.

He concluded: “Commey will not only be the the boxer on the bill, the likes of Duke Micah and Felix Ajom will be on the card, but Commey will headline the show.

Last September, Commey failed to become Ghana’s eighth world champion after America’s Robert Easter Jr defeated him (via a disputed split decision) to win the vacant IBF lightweight belt.

The 28 year-old James Town native had another opportunity to get a rematch with Easter but he fell short after losing (split decision) the IBF final eliminator bout to Russia’s Denis Shafikov in Russia on December 2.
