Boxer Richard Commey has apologised to the Ghanaian people after he was dominated in a masterful lopsided unanimous decision by Ukranian Vasiliy Lomachenko.

Lomachenko dropped Commey heavily in the seventh round and even tried to persuade his opponent’s corner to halt the fight before he sealed a dominant win with scores of 117-110, 119-108 and 119-108 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Speaking in a post-fight interview, Commey said he kept going after he was dropped by Lomachenko because he fights for his people.

“I fight for my country, I fight for my people, you know, I let them down but I believe I’m gonna come back stronger,” a tearful Commey said.

“I think the round I dropped down, I just took my eyes off him for a second and that’s it, I could have stayed focused all along and it is what it is.

“He’s a great fighter, I did what I had to do, I am proud of my people, I fight for them and I love them so much. It’s hard for me to take it because I feel I am the only one representing them”.

The former IBF Lightweight champion despite taking a battering confirmed that he was not hurt and vowed to become a two-time champion in the future.

Loma, the former unified champion is now expected to become mandatory challenger for George Kambosos Jnr, who ripped the WBA, IBF and WBO belts from Teofimo Lopez with an upset win last month.
