Vasyl Lomachenko Vs. Richard Commey Reportedly Next

By: Hans Themistode Vasyl Lomachenko is reportedly ready to return to the ring before the year comes to an end. According to Dan Rafael, formerly with ESPN, Lomachenko is slated to face off against Richard Commey on December 11th. As of now, no venue has been officially disclosed. For Lomachenko, the Ukrainian sat back and listened as his pound-for-pound credentials were constantly questioned. With Teofimo Lopez dethroning him in October of 2020, there was an overwhelming belief that the former two-time Olympic gold medalist had seen better days. In his showdown against Lopez, Lomachenko fought lethargically in the first half before dominating down the stretch. Since then, the 33-year-old attempted to secure a rematch with his loquacious rival, something that was originally denied. In an effort to prove that he was worthy of a second shot against Lopez and eager to demonstrate that he was still one of boxing’s best, Lomachenko dominated highly rated contender, Masayoshi Nakatani. The two faced off this past June at the Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although the Japanese native carried several physical advantages, Lomachenko dominated the action, dropping him multiple times before ultimately stopping him. He’ll now look to make it two in a row when he takes on Commey. The former IBF lightweight belt holder saw his title reign come to an abrupt end, ironically enough, also at the hands of Teofimo Lopez. In December of 2019, after a fairly even first round between the pair, Lopez landed a monstrous right hand that immediately sent Commey to the mat. While he would beat the count, referee David Fields would eventually call a halt to their contest just a few seconds later. With his world title taken away from him, Commey would take more than a year off before making his return. This past February, the Bronx New York, resident walked through fringe contender Jackson Marinez, stopping him in the sixth round. Both Commey and Lomachenko will look towards title shots in 2022 with a definitive win come December 11th. The post Vasyl Lomachenko Vs.

Tyson Fury Returns To Training: “GK Is Back!”

By: Sean Crose Lineal and WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury appears to be back in the gym preparing for his October 9th fight with Deontay Wilder. "Good morning, people," a smiling Fury says in a video presented by FightHype. "GK is back!" The video then cuts from the man sipping from a mug while in a bathroom to footage of Fury training in a gym, where he can be seen on a treadmill, doing weight work, and doing leg work. The entire brief video is replete with upbeat music and the occasional sound of Fury roaring in motivation. The whole thing is classic Fury. Fury also posted a tweet on Friday showing a picture of Wilder, who he will now be facing for the third time. "This man is a real piece of work," reads the tweet, "a real bully excuse maker. Not a warrior or a man at all. Beat the mug 2 times. I’ve battered him and his trainer. But still talking shit. Real pussies." Although there may be genuine bad blood between the two men, Fury and Wilder's recent social media activity has the whiff of promotion about it. There are tickets to sell, after all, and potential pay per view customers to entice. Fury first met Wilder late in 2018. He seemed to dominate more of the fight, but was nearly knocked out in the 12th and final round, leading the bout to be declared a draw. The two men met again just over a year later. Only this time, Fury - under the tutelage of Sugar Hill Steward - was the aggressor. After completely dominating his man, Fury was declared the victor after Wilder's co-trainer, Mark Breland, tossed in the towel in the seventh round. Wilder has since claimed numerous outside factors led to his defeat, a claim Fury disregards. Since that time, one strange thing after another has occurred. The pandemic - perhaps the strangest thing the world has recently witnessed - put a halt to a signed for third battle. Then Fury went off to fight fellow titlist Anthony Joshua - only that fight was prevented from happening thanks to the ruling of a California arbitrator. Then Fury and Wilder signed to fight in July. Then Fury came down with Covid and the third battle with Wilder was pushed back to the fall. Provided the bout actually goes through this time, it may prove to once again be an intriguing matchup. "You say you’re a semi truck but I’m a freight train," Wilder tweeted at Fury on Wednesday. "Better get your weight up."
