In Germany, there are many “straight”, very correct, and they did not much like my behaviour. So I saw the really long way to get into Löw’s plans, so I said to myself,” he told Skysports Italia’s The Lord of Football show.

‘My Hard Work Paid Off,’ : Says New World Champion Richard Commey

Ghana’s latest world champion, Richard Oblitey Commey has told Kasapa Sports that he earned his title by dint of “hard work and determination”.

Commey delivered a masterful performance to beat Russian Isa Chaniev to become the new IBF Lightweight World Champion Sunday dawn.

A left hand by Commey blasted Chaniev, 26, early in Round 2 to produce a second knockdown. Moments later, Commey, 31, pounced and banged the Russian with a left uppercut, right-hand combination that ended matters.

Commey’s only two pro defeats both came in 2016, and many media members believed he deserved the nod in each fight. First, he dropped a split decision to Robert Easter in his only other bid for a title. Next up was Denis Shafikov, who outpointed him in the same manner.

Lomachenko is rated No. 1 by The Ring pound-for-pound, but he’s best suited for 126 pounds. Commey, a physical specimen, will enjoy a considerable size advantage. It’s shaping up as a tough challenge for the two-time Olympic gold medalist.

Commey in an exclusive interview Kasapa Sports said: “I won this title through hard work and determination because the kind of training here is not a joke, it got to a point I realized that staying in Ghana would not help so I had to relocate and my decision has paid off”.

“For now, my management team is working hard on my next step in my career so I won’t talk about my next opponent I would like to sit back and enjoy my world title,” he told Adam Adjei.

Manchester United In Discussions With Chinese Club To Sell Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United are in discussions with an unnamed Chinese club over the potential sale of Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian agreed a two-year extension to his terms last summer that ties him to the club until 2020. United had told the player he was under no pressure to leave but that they would be open to a serious offer to sign him. Unlike the domestic transfer window, which closes on Thursday, the Chinese one is open until next month.

Fellaini was David Moyes’s sole major signing in the summer 2013 window and has struggled to be accepted by some United fans. José Mourinho oversaw Fellaini’s contract extension but the Belgian has struggled for game-time under the Portuguese’s temporary successor, Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

Fellaini is currently injured with a calf problem and has not featured since the 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading on 5 January.
