Richard Commey Falls Short Against Jose Ramirez In TKO Loss

Richard Commey and Jose Ramirez fought in a 12-round junior welterweight bout at the Save Mart Arena in Fresno, California. Ramirez won the fight by eleventh-round stoppage. Ramirez won the title eliminator match, putting him in position to compete for a world championship.

Before to the contest, Commey, a former lightweight world champion, had a record of 30-5-1 with 27 knockouts, while Ramirez, a former unified junior welterweight champion, had a record of 28-1 with 18 KOs.

The evening’s main event was the fight. Both fighters are known for their all-action style and were determined to return to the top level of the sport. Commey started the fight strong, but Ramirez was able to break him down and win by stoppage in the eleventh round.

Ramirez’s win sets him up for a shot at a world title in the junior welterweight division. Ramirez had previously lost his titles to Josh Taylor in a unification bout in May 2021.

Ramirez said after the fight, “It’s always hard after a lay-off, but mentally, I had to go back to being my old self and start strong.

“There came a point in my career where I got too comfortable. But this time, I started with that rhythm of being active with my punches throughout the round. And I went back to my old self. I hurt him in the first round. But he’s a tough guy. Big shout out to Commey and his team. He’s a good warrior. He took some good shots.”

“And he picked it up in the middle of the fight, too. I heard his team motivating him, but I wanted to make a statement and show that I’m the stronger guy in there. I want any world champion. If Regis Prograis is serious about fighting, we can sit down and negotiate. Let’s sit down and make the fight.”

Overall, the fight between Richard Commey and Jose Ramirez was a high-stakes contest between two former world champions. Ramirez’s victory puts him one step closer to regaining his world titles, while Commey will have to regroup and consider his next move
