Lomachenko-Commey unification won't happen in April

By G. Leon


As expected, newly minted IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey will be unavailable to face WBO/WBA lightweight champion and pound-for-pound king Vasiliy Lomahenko in April as originally hoped. Commey suffered an injury to the knuckle on his right middle finger during his sensational showing against Isa Chaniev, and the injury was diagnosed to be a floating tendon. Commey had an MRI that revealed, "he's going to be out for six weeks," said promoter Lou DiBella. "He's going to see a another specialist next week, so I'm going to be huddling up with Top Rank and we should know if we're going to be able to reschedule it by next Tuesay." Remember where you heard it first!
