Ghana’s lightweight boxer, Richard Commey, has moved to 5th in the lightweight division in the latest International Boxing Federation (IBF) rankings for the month of August.

Commey last month was ranked 6th, but this time he has moved a place up.

The James-Town native last year fought for the IBF World lightweight belt but he lost via a disputed split decision to Robert Easter Jr.

The former IBF international lightweight champion two months ago signed a promotional deal with one of the best promotional companies DiBella Entertainment.
