Ghanaian lightweight star Richard Commey (19-0, 17 KOs) will face Mikheil Avakyan (27-18-4, 12 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night on February 7 at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn, Denmark.
Commey is back in action following a unanimous points victory over Samir Ziani in Copenhagen. The Commonwealth Champion can improve to 20-0 when he returns to Denmark to take on the 23 year-old Georgian, Avakyan.
‘’I can’t wait to get back in the ring. 2014 was a great year for me, but 2015 is going to be even better,’’ said Commey. ‘’I want to stay active and gain as much experience as possible, as soon I’ll be fighting in world title eliminators.’’
Since his last fight, Commey has been honing his skills at the Pro SW Gym in Loughton, Essex, where the 27 year-old has enjoyed quality sparring with IBF World Super Bantamweight Champion Carl Frampton and former world title challenger Kevin Mitchell. ‘’Carl and Kevin are both fantastic boxers with loads of experience,’’ said Commey. ‘’Sparring with fighters of their calibre can only help me improve!’’
