“By the grace of God team COMMEY won the fight on points. We thank all of you,” Commey’s coach, Carl Lokko posted on Facebook shortly after the verdict.

Ghana Boxing Authority Committee member, Yoofi Boham who has witnessed the rise of Commey to this stage of his career, was even more ecstatic.

“I am short of words not knowing how to express my happiness and joy for this win over such a formidable guy. In fact, I am highly elated, feel highly honoured and seeing myself moving full chest out,” Mr. Boham said in a message to Michael Amoo-Bediako, manager of Commey.

“I can imagine your ecstasy by the ring side on hearing the verdict – resounding scores of 2 judges each scoring 96-94 and the other having it 97-93. Baravo to Richie and Carl,” Yoofi Boham added.
