Joseph Commey pummels out Papua New Guinea opponent in 2 at Commonwealth Games

Young featherweight and member of Ghana’s amateur boxing team, Black Bombers at the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, UK, Joseph Commey has held spectators spellbound anytime he has mounted the squared circle.

Winning gold at the National Individual Championships staged in Accra in March, the young pugilist who is a product of the Black Panther Boxing Gym got selected into the national team.

There goes that man again: Joseph Commey launches an attack on Allan Oaike

By dint of diligence, discipline and dedication he earned the slot to represent his nation at the Games in the featherweight division.

Commey hails from a bloodline of fighters, warriors of national and global repute: a great grandfather who was a national and African Champion in the 70s and 80s (Oblitei Commey known as The Jaguar or Fighting Fisherman), an uncle who captured the national, African and Commonwealth featherweight titles in the 90s (Percy Oblitei Commey) among others.

Though a fresh entrant into the national team, Joseph Commey made mince meat of his Kiribati opponent Betoro Aaree with a 5-0 win before pummeling Allan Oaike from Vanuatu to a second round stoppage to earn a quarter final berth.

Coach Ebenezer Adjei of the Black Panthers Gym and Commey’s gym mates have expressed optimism of he clinching a gold medal.

With his gutsy display of fistic endowment and resolute disposition, it’s pretty obvious: A new star is born and his name is Joseph Commey.
