Vasiliy Lomachenko Vs. Richard Commey Undercard Live Results, Highlights

Former unified lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko and former IBF titlist Richard Commey are lighting up Madison Square Garden Saturday night.

Lomachenko (15-2, 11 KOs) and Commey (30-3, 27 KOs) have shown nothing but respect to one another in the weeks leading up to Saturday, but all that will be put aside when they meet in a 12-round lightweight bout.

Lomachenko said prior to the fight that no one is calling him out in the lightweight division because he’s like Voldemort from “Harry Potter” — the main villain who is referred to in the movie as “He Who Shall Not Be Named.”

The Ukrainian boxer is the heavy favorite going into the fight — even former WBO junior lightweight titleholder Jamel Herring and WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford think so.

But Commey told FIGHT SPORTS on Thursday that he doesn’t mind being the underdog — it motivates him.

Nico Ali Walsh (3-0, 2 KOs) added another win to his resume, but this time with a majority decision win over Reyes Sanchez (6-1, 2 KOs) in a four-round middleweight fight. Ali Walsh unloaded in the second round, but Sanchez continued to fight until the fourth. Ali Walsh, the grandson of Muhammad Ali, credited his opponent for being a skilled fighter and said there’s more he wants to work on.

Olympic silver medalist Keyshawn Davis (4-0, 3 KOs) floored Jose Zaragoza (8-4-1, 2 KOs) in the second round with a TKO. Davis began pounding on his opponent early on, but it became overwhelming in the second when a barrage of punches sent Zaragoza to the mat. Zaragoza got up, but was almost immediately sent down as the referee waved off the fight.

Jared Anderson (11-0, 11 KOs) did not hesitate to extend his unbeaten streak with an aggressive knockout of Oleksandr Teslenko (17-2, 13 KOs) just over a minute and a half into the second round. The “Big Baby” caught his Ukrainian opponent with a straight left hand followed by a right and left to seal the deal. Anderson said to keep questioning if he will be the next greatest heavyweight.
