Boxing: Lomachenko defeats Commey in New York

The scores from the fight were 117-110, 119-108 and 119-108

Vasyl Lomachenko defeated Richard Commey by unanimous decision on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York, abc News reports.

Lomachenko floored Richard Commey hard in Round 7, leaving his opponent on wobbly legs and in big trouble. He pleaded with Commey’s corner to stop the contest, but they allowed the fight to continue.

The stoppage never materialized for Lomachenko, but he still won in dominant fashion under the sport’s spotlight, a unanimous-decision victory that continued his march.

The fighters did not seem surprised when the decision was announced, and they exchanged friendly words with some smiles along the way. The scores from the fight were 117-110, 119-108 and 119-108.

“I saw his situation, it was very hard for him. That’s why I said, ‘Hey, stop the fight.’ He is a true warrior. He has a big heart and we continue and we show for people 12 great rounds,” Lomachenko said of the seventh round.

“In this weight division, we have a lot of great fighters,” Lomachenko added, “so we can organize a lot of great fights in the future.”
