Richard Commey had a great time in the ring sending a reminder to the lightweight division that he is still a force to be reckoned with.

The 33-year old enjoyed a celebrated return to the ring after a 14-month break, knocking out Jackson Marinez in the 6th round of their main event Saturday evening at MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas.

Commey scored two knockdowns, the latter of the two prompted an immediate stoppage at 2:35 of round six.

Commey has been out of the ring since his IBF lightweight title reign came to an unceremonious close in a 2nd round knockout to Teofimo Lopez in Dec. 2019.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic kept him out of the ring for all of 2020, only to watch Lopez further unify the 135-pound division following a 12-round unanimous decision win over Vasiliy Lomachenko in their World lightweight championship clash last October.
