▷ Richard Commey vs Jackson Marinez Live ™StreaM @FreE WBO Light Heavyweight : Richard Commey vs Jackson Marinez predictions and preview: Who wins the fight?
Richard Commey and Jackson Marinez get a main event slot on ESPN Saturday. Who wins?
Saturday night’s original ESPN (10 pm ET) main event was to be a vacant WBO light heavyweight title fight between Joe Smith Jr and Maxim Vlasov, but with Vlasov testing positive for COVID on Thursday, that’s been postponed, and the intended co-feature has been bumped to main event status.
In the new main event, we’ll see former lightweight titlist Richard Commey (29-3, 26 KO) look to bounce back from his Dec. 2019 wipeout loss to Teofimo Lopez, as he takes on Jackson Marinez (19-1, 7 KO), who was last seen in Aug. 2020 dropping an extremely questionable decision to Rolando Romero.
This really isn’t anyone’s idea of a strong ESPN main event, but it is a good matchup for both guys, who want to win and get or stay in the mix at 135, which is a very hot division.
Who wins? We pick it:
Date: Saturday, Feb. 13
Time: 10 P.M. E.T.
