Richard Commey stops Ray Beltran in eight

June 28, 2019: Temecula, USA
Commey's IBF title was not on the line for this fight due to Beltran not making weight. Richard Commey started fast, dropping Beltran twice in the opening round. Beltran managed
to hang on but was dropped once again in the 5th. Commey’s power was too much for the weight-drained and aging Beltran. In the 8th round Commey caught Beltran with a left
hook, sending him down for the fourth time. Beltran got up but referee Eddie Hernandez called a halt to the fight.
