Russian Boxing Show’s Lady in Red – Friday night saw Moscow, Russia’s “Tough Fight Gym” host a four fight boxing card headlined by high level 135- pound action as Denis Shafikov (37-2-1) opposed Richard Commey (24-1).
Commey faced a tall order going to Moscow to fight a Russian fighter, and in the end, after twelve hard rounds of fighting, Commey was on the wrong end of a split decision. Russia’s reputation as an inhospitable place to fight will likely continue, but the Russian people can often be terrific hosts as well. Though the “Tough Fight Gym” is a small venue, quite a bit was invested in putting together a high level main event like Denis Shafikov vs Richard Commey.
Always ostentatious, even a show in a smaller venue like the Shafikov vs Commey fight will see the promoters invest in a little entertainment for when the fights are not going on. After all, it is the Russian way.
