Prediction,

I like this fight, it's a very interesting match up.
This fight is worthy of being the co-main event on a night of boxing, and it isn't even that, for a fight which is listed below 2 other fights, it is a very good one.

This is a case of an unbeaten prospect facing by far his toughest test yet, trying to prove he is as good as the highly ranked fighters in the division, taking on a fighter who is experienced, who has been at a higher level than he has who isn't undefeated, but has only lost on a small number of occasions, and only lost at a high level.

Luna is unbeaten, he's a good fighter, but this is a step up in class.
Commey is the perfect opponent for an untested fighter at the career stage Luna is at, because he has only lost to fairly big names, he's lost, only twice as well, so if Luna beats him, you could say, he proves himself to be, at least close to world level.
If Luna is a level below Easter, Shafikov, Commey will let him know, both his losses were close ones.

I think there is a case to be made for both guys winning.
Both these guys have had a year out of the ring, which isn't good, but I would imagine that the more experienced professional will more easily pick it back up, get his rhythm back more quickly. Commey has had more fights, but interestingly, Luna has been a professional for longer.
Commey is the only one who has been in a world title fight, and he has been in many commonwealth title fights, Luna has only ever competed for one title, and that was a youth title, a very long time ago. I think it is safe to say Commey is the slightly more overall experienced of the two fighters.
I tnink Commey is the bigger puncher.

This could turn out to be a case of whether or not Commey has the desire he has against Shafikov and Easter, I think Luna is good enough to beat Commey if he doesn't want to win as much as he did against the two guys who just about beat him before.
If Commey wants to win as much as ever, I would say he has a very high chance of winning.
I think the real question here is how good Luna is, Commey, I think is easier to rate as a fighter, I think we can have a good idea of roughly how good Commey is, and really, whether or not he wins (assuming he is as well preapred mentally, and in the gym as he can be), depemds much more on how good Luna is than how good he is.

This is an eliminator, I think that's good, because Commey, I don't think is undeserving of a world title shot, and certainly, a fighter who beats him, is not undeserving of a world title shot. I'm very interested to see this fight.

I'm going to go with the younger, unbeaten fighter, it is tough to predict, because untested prospects can always be really good fighters on the up, they can also be fighters who are good at a certain level, but don't move up well through the levels, but I think for the sake of giving tbe benefit if the doubt to Luna, I'll predict him to win this.

I wouldn't be surprised if Commey won, I think it will be a very competitive fight, but my prediction is Luna, UD.

What a win for Commey!
Andre Rozier is a fine trainer, I think he has done great with Commey, Khurtside, Jacobs, Ali, and others.

Both these guys put up a spirited effort, were in shape, were able to take hard shots, but Commey more so, and there was more method behind everything he did, his experience was important. Luna is a very good fighter, but he makes a lot of mistakes, and if you make the same mistakes against a fighter of Commey's level, as you do against opponents of a much lower level, you get punished. I think Luna can come back from this, but getting stopped is always tough on a fighter mentally and physically. I think Commey 100% deserves a shot at a title, both his losses, split decisions, it doesn't get any closer than that, and with this victory, he has certainly earned another opportunity.
