Ghana’s Richard Commey and Puerto Rico’s Jose Pedraza fought to split draw in a 10-round bout at 140 Ibs at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Commey [30-4-1, 27 KO] started on a defensive note making Pedraza [29-4-1, 14 KO] a bit more comfortable in the opening round.

However, the former lightweight world champion [Commey] began to dominate from the second round until a head butt incident in the sixth round resulted in a cut on top of his left eye.

Pedraza had a dominant ninth round but that was only good enough to attract a split draw.

Commey who was hoping for a debut win in the junior welterweight division said:

“I am disappointed because I should have won this fight but it is what it is.”

“It is a draw. Obviously, I have to go back home and see my people. I love my people, and I gotta go back there, do what I gotta do” he added.

The two former world champions – Commey and Pedraza lost their last fights prior to this fight to Vasiliy Lomacheko and Jose Ramirez respectively.
