Richard Commey, the International Boxing Federation (IBF) number one contender, has said, he is not perturbed about the strength of his next opponent, since he was ready for any challenger.

“It doesn’t matter who I have to face. My goal is to win the world title and I’m so close to realising my dreams, but I have one more hurdle before that.

"Let me get past Cruz and then we would see what my team has in store for me,” Commey said, in an interview ahead of the proposed world title fight against, Mikey Garcia later in the year.

The IBF on Wednesday ordered the camp of Garcia to open negotiations with Commey for the mandatory defence of the IBF Lightweight title.

This was after Garcia had unified the IBF and World Boxing Council (WBC) Lightweight titles, after beating Robert Easter Jr, over the weekend.

Commey was on the ring side to observe the fight between Garcia and Easter, and is looking forward to the challenge.

Commey fought Easter for the vacant IBF title in September 2016.
