Ghana’s RICHARD COMMEY becomes the new Lightweight Champion following his unanimous points win over Wales experienced GARY BUCKLAND last night at London’s famous York Hall.
This follows Nigerian ISAAC EKPO’s points win, also unanimous, over Ghanaian PETER ATO RICKETTS
at the Aborigines Beach Resort, Keta, Ghana a couple of weeks before on 28th June, for the vacant Supermiddleweight Championship. Both new Champions join Aussie LUCAS BROWNE at Heavyweight and OVILL MCKENZIE of Jamaica at Cruiserweight as the latest non-UK born Commonwealth Champions and the CBC hopes to see further challenges from the best boxers from all over the Commonwealth.
Congratulations to England’s KID GALAHAD and KHALID YAFAI at Superbantamweight and Superflyweight respectively, both of who have won Commonwealth Championships since our last Bulletin in May.
This year’s AGM will take place on THURSDAY 11TH and FRIDAY 12TH DECEMBER at the Headquarters of the Commonwealth Secretariat, Marlborough House, Pall Mall, London.
