Commey lost his first professional fight after Easter defeated him on the night of September 9 in the United States to clinch the IBF Lightweight crown in a split decision.

Easter Jr. won 114-113, 115-112 and Commey 114-113 on the cards via a 2-1 decision but Commey has insisted he was robbed.

Vanderpuye told the media on Monday at a ceremony to welcome Commey home that the 29-year-old Ghanaian boxer deserved to have won the bout, hinting at filing a protest.

“I will personally be interested in the petition that we will send to the IBF protesting against this verdict. I have a chance of talking to [someone] who’s been in boxing for long and we have advised ourselves on the next line of action. We will formally as a country protest,” Vanderpuye said.

Meanwhile, a popular Ghanaian boxing promoter, Atta Eddie Pappoe, believes the judges’ scores were fair. Enditem
