Commey takes on dangerous former champion Ray Beltran in his next fight Mikey Williams/Top Rank

FINALLY Raymundo Beltran has achieved his dream. Enduring the frustrations of three previously failed world title attempts he won the WBO lightweight when he beat Paulus Moses by unanimous decision in Reno on Friday (February 16).

Beltran said, “I have no words. I gave everything I had. I really had to push myself. He is a very experienced and tough fighter. He surprised me with a couple of good punches, but right away I thought about my family and everything I have been throughout my career.

“I gave it my all. I made my career the tough way, and now I’m a champion.”
