Richard Commey (29-2, 26KOs) knocked out Isa Chaniev in the second round to win the title in February, a card that also hosted Teofimo Lopez in his first fight in 2019, a win over Magdaleno that eventually made him a contender. Lopez went onto defeat Edis Tatli two much later.

Commey defeated former titlist Rey Beltran via eight round stoppage in his first title defense in June, after failing to Tse all a unification fight with two belt titlist Vasily Lomachenko.
