It's time for the Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Richard Commey live stream, and this card is headlined by one of the biggest boxing matches of the end of 2021. And, oddly, it's all because of one of the biggest L's of 2020.
Tonight, we see Vasiliy Lomachenko look to punch his way back to the top of the lightweight division in an attempt to redeem himself after a surprising title loss to Teofimo Lopez.
Lomachenko's likely a little frustrated that his desired rematch against Lopez hasn't happened. Commey looks like the next best thing. And since the rest of the lightweight boxing world failed to light a spark as of late, it seems like a win here could be huge for Lomachenko. It could even propel him to a challenge against the current champ George Kambosos Jr. in 2022.
What does beating Commey prove? The 34-year-old Ghanaian held the IBF lightweight title in 2019, and has a cautious fighting style that will likely force Lomachenko to take a risk here and there. But the money's on Lomachenko, as most people think it's just a question of how many rounds Commey will last. Especially since Lopez took Commey out with a second-round TKO a little under two years ago (Dec. 14, 2019).
But what if Commey surprises us all? After all, Kambosos did beat the odds against Lopez. It would likely send him to face Kambosos (though the victor there feels a bit easier to predict than if Lomachenko wins).
Even worse, a loss to Commey could put Lomachenko on the ropes. Maybe he would try fighting at 130 pounds, but he wouldn't return to that class with a lot of steam behind him.
