Commey last month was at number 5 but in the latest ranking he has moved a place up.
Five months ago, Commey was signed by one of the biggest promoters in the world DiBella Entertainment.
The Ghanaian was billed to fight in an IBF lightweight eliminator against Russia’s Roman Andreev on December 9th in Russia but the fight was called off after Andreev’s promoter failed to pay Commey’s purse.
Commey currently holds the WBC international silver lightweight belt. He defeated Belgium’s Hedi Slimani last March to win the strap.
