30 seconds into the second frame, Commey got caught with a right hook that knocked him off balance and after regaining his balance was dropped to one knee by a huge right. After beating the count, Teofimo Lopez cornered him on the ropes, raining a flurry on the champ till the referee intervened to stop the fight.
“I’m at a loss for words right now,” Lopez told ESPN’s Bernardo Osuna in his post fight interview. “This is a dream come true. [Commey] is a bad man. His shot could’ve done the same to me if he hit me with that shot.”
However, the fight definitely sent a message to Unified Champion Vasily Lomachenko, who watched the fight from ringside. The win leaves open a possibility for a unification fight between the two titlist in 2020.
