President Akufo-Addo has sent word to encourage Ghana’s own and reigning IBF Lightweight Champion, Richard Commey to win the title for Ghana ahead of the Champion’s fight against Teofimo Lopez.

Responding to a question asked by award-winning presenter, Patrick Osei Agyemang, popularly known as Countryman Songo on what he has to say to Richard Commey as he defends his IBF Lightweight title, President Akufo-Addo said: “win the title for Ghana”.

The encounter was to afford journalists the opportunity to ask the President some critical questions on topical issues in the country.

On Saturday (December 14, 2019) the IBF Lightweight Champion Richard Commey will put his title on the line in what could be an outstanding bout.

Commey will face Teofimo Lopez who makes his first attempt at becoming a world champion when he faces the Accra, Ghana native.

Commey, 32, says he will not relinquish his title easily. Lopez, 22, also says his stock will either go up dramatically after Saturday or it’ll drop to the point where he’s “irrelevant” in the eyes of boxing fans.
