Lomachenko had his head down and arms low, which is why Commey never saw the shot coming. The punch caught Commey straight on the temple, wobbling the Ghanian boxer. He had no idea how Vasyl Lomachenko hit him that fast at such a short distance.

Commey wobbled around the ring as Lomachenko piled on more pressure. At one point, Commey was dragging his leg across the canvas, and Lomachenko had enough. He turned around and screamed at his corner, begging them to stop the fight.

This is the class that sets the Ukrainian apart from any other boxer. He knew he hurt his opponent badly, but instead of going in for the finish and inflicting more damage on his opponent, he pleaded to the corner to stop the fight.
