Richard Commey

Pedraza finds rhythm

Commey had a cut on his left eye when there was a clash of heads between the two boxers in the 5th round. In the referee’s account of the fight, he ruled that a punch caused the cut on the eye. After the cut on Commey’s left eye, Pedraza started gaining better control of the fight.

The 9th round was Pedraza’s most dominant round in the fight, making good use of the body punches. The way he landed those punches on Commey’s body had a real impact. It looked like those blows to the body were tiring out Richard Commey in the last couple of rounds.

However, it was not like Pedraza had a marathon after the 4th round was over. He failed to engage in combat in most of Round 8, which made it difficult for the judges to score him. It was as if like he almost took the round off.
