Best bets: Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Richard Commey

Former WBC/WBA/WBO lightweight Vasiliy Lomachenko (15-2, 11 KO) returns to the ring Saturday night, December 11, at Madison Square Garden looking to get back into lightweight championship contention by taking on a stiff challenge from former IBF lightweight champion, Richard Commey (30-3, 27 KO).

The 33-year-olf Ukrainian southpaw Lomachenko will be facing his second opponent since losing to Teofimo Lopez in October 2020. Commey, the 34-year-old orthodox fighter from Ghana, has history with Lopez as well, with his only loss in the last five years being to the now former champ. The winner of this clash will look to secure the fight shot at new unified lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr.

The card can be found right here on ESPN+ Top Rank PPV. The card begins at 5:30 ET/2:30 PT, with a 12 round main event clash between the two. With ESPN+, you can get exclusive events, weigh-ins, and much more leading up to fight night.

If Lomachenko can get the job done and impressive fashion, I believe that will land him right back in title contention.
