Richard Commey vs. Alejandro Luna Full Fight – March 10,2018.
The 31-year-old Commey has lost only split decisions to Easter and fellow lightweight contender Denis Shafikov (38-4-1, 20 KOs). He made sure his competitive fight against Luna didn’t go to the scorecards, though.
Richard Commey moved closer Saturday night to getting the second shot at Robert Easter Jr. that he desperately wants.
The hard-hitting lightweight contender from Ghana knocked out Mexico’s Alejandro Luna in the sixth round of their IBF lightweight elimination match in San Antonio. Commey knocked down Luna twice in the sixth round, which prompted referee David Fields to stop their bout on the Sergey Lipinets-Mikey Garcia undercard at Freeman Coliseum.
The victory moved Commey closer to a rematch with Easter (21-0, 14 KOs), who conquered Commey (26-2, 23 KOs) by split decision to win the then-vacant IBF lightweight title 18 months ago in Reading, Pennsylvania. Mexico’s Luna lost for the first time in his seven-year pro career (22-1, 15 KOs).
