Following the news that pound for pound boxing star Vasyl Lomachenko will next face former world champion Anthony Crolla of Manchester, UK in his next bout, certain areas of the boxing world have been very critical of the fight.

Sure, it’s a tough fight for Anthony but it’s a well deserved opportunity to test himself against one of the very best in the sport today and on a huge platform in the US too.

One of the good guys in boxing, he should be receiving backing for taking on the challenge and not getting hammered like is by some fans.

Indeed, IBF world lightweight champion Richard Commey from Ghana has won a lot of support with the following on social media:

Fair play Richard Commey.

Indeed, he could find himself in a fight down the line with either man in reality.

Commey recently won the IBF title with a TKO win in Frisco last month over Isa Chaniev.

Lomachenko vs Crolla is set for the Staples Center in LA on April 12th.
