I have never visited any Mallam before – Richard Commey
Ghana boxer Richard Oblitey Commey has revealed that he has not visited any spiritual man [known in local parlance as mallam] before a bout and has never used any spiritual powers in his career.
According to the IBF lightweight Champion, holding a world title should serve as motivation for up and coming boxers who must work hard to achieve greater things in the industry.
“I have never visited any mallam before as well as cast a black spell. Holding the IBF title should be an eye-opener to the upcoming boxers,” he told Accra based Okay FM.
Meanwhile, Commey is expected to face mandatory challenger Teofimo Lopez who saw off Masayoshi Nakatani on July 19 but the American-Honduran boxer has disclosed that the bout may not happen if he fails to sort his personal issues that are bothering him at the moment.
“If we don’t sort these things out, there won’t be a fight between myself and Richard Commey. I have to regroup within myself. I can beat all these guys, impressively and without any flaws in the ring” Lopez told ESPN.
“But if Teofimo is not happy when he’s in the ring, then those are the problems that—the only person that can beat me, is me,” the mandatory challenger boasted.
