IBF Lightweight Champion Richard Commey has confirmed the inclusion of renowned American boxing manager Keith Connolly to his management team.
This comes a few hours after the Ghanaian denied reports suggesting the said appointment.
The 31 year old took to his official twitter handle to confirm the news, with Connolly set to work alongside Commey’s longtime manager Michael Amoo-Bediako.

Connolly also manages Daniel Jacobs, Adam Kownacki, Sergey Derevyanchenko and Marcus Brown.
Commey was slated to fight unified champion Vasyl Lomachenko in April before suffering a hand injury in his title clinching bout against Russian Isa Chaniev back in February.
