  • I don’t know how much Commey has left, particularly at 140, but if he can put out one more good night, he has a chance. I definitely expect Ramirez to win, but he’ll be there to be hit and Commey does have power, or at least he does at lightweight, so we’ll see what happens. Always did like Commey.

  • I’m not sure why Ramirez is fighting Comey other than the fact that Comey is smaller and older coming up from lightweight and can be used as a measuring stick against Teo? Or a good fight to make himself look good? Ramirez and his people claimed they were low balled by Prograis but clearly they didn’t want that fight and ducked him. Prograis is the champ and deserved the larger percentage. Yes, this fight should be be somewhat competitive for a while but Ramirez will have to recon with Prograis at some point.

  • Ramirez’s size, pressure and body punching will guide him to a TKO victory (6th round).

    • I tend to agree but when Commey is on. He is one tough S.O.B that can crack. Ramires needs to fight smart to come out on top. Comment is not a soft fight. Higher risk for the reward than say Teo, Josh, Pregrais o and not to mention that tough kid from Fajardo P.R…ponce.

  • Honestly weak fight and show. Ramirez took the easy way out of the Prograis fight. How many times can Commey get ko’d? Also this is purely because both fighters are with Top Rank. Lol

  • – Not much press on this fight.
    – Honestly didn’t even know it was happening until now.
    – Should be a good fight……

  • im not sure but i believe commney has been stopped might have been a decent fighter at one time

  • I’m looking forward to this fight. There’s jusssst enough abandonment in gap bridging to make it a nice firefight after 2 or 3 rounds.

    I highly doubt that this one goes to the cards.
