IBF Lightweight world champion Richard Commey has refuted claims he has split with his long time manager Michael Amoo-Bediako.
There were wide spread reports making rounds that Commey had signed with renowned boxing manager Keith Connolly, and was set to fight Teofimo Lopez or Vasyl Lomachenko before the end of the year.
According to the reports, Commey had supposedly signed a multi deal with Conolly, who manages the likes of Adam Kownacki, Sergey Derevyanchenko and Marcus Brown.
But Commey on Thursday used his twitter handle to clarify the news, and described the reports as false.
“Not sure where you got this story from, but it’s not true,” he said in response to one of the said reports.

Commey captured the world title earlier this year after a comfortable round two TKO victory over Russian Isa Chaniev.
But an injury to his knuckle led to his unification bout with Lomachenko being called off. The Ghanaian is expected to make voluntary defense before a possible unification bout with Lomachenko.
