WBO Africa lightweight champion Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe has chided Richard Commey, saying the newly crowned IBF champion cannot run away from him forever, but prefers to fight Vasily Lomachenko instead.

Answering to whether he’s ready to take on Commey who claimed the IBF lightweight title from Isa Chaniev on February 02, the Baby Jet Promotions boxer said he’s not thinking about RC.

“I never challenged Richard Commey to a fight, but we are all in the same weight category, so he cannot run away from a fight with me.

“Lomachenko is my target now not Richard Commey. I am focused and aiming at a fight with Vasyl Lomachenko,” he adds.

Emmanuel Togoe will defend his title against Russia’s Vyacheslav Gusev on February 23 at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
