Bill Haney has said that Devin has been trying different things during training to outbox George Kambosos Jr in their rematch on October 16 because the latter will throw everything in the tank to avenge the loss in the first fight.
“We know he’s a desperate man, a hungry man, a man that has nothing to lose,” Bill said.
“Similar to when he fought Teofimo Lopez. You have to prepare all the tools, shine up everything to the best of your ability, and then let Devin make the adjustment on October the 16th to whatever George brings.”
In June, Devin became the first undisputed lightweight champion in 32 years after he beat the Australian star in Melbourne. He took Kambosos’ WBA, IBF, WBO and lineal titles.
Judges scored the contest 116-112, 116-112, 118-110 in the champ’s favor who dominated Kambosos throughout the fight.
But the Haney family is aware of how Kambosos can come back harder than in the first showdown, hence, they are prepared for everything.
“You can’t necessarily dictate what George is going to do. You have to make the adjustments. So you go in there, and you do that. You don’t go in there and necessarily look for the knockout. You let it come is how I learned the game,” Bill added.
“You don’t want to say harder because one thing, when they bring you harder, you get smarter. I know we’ll make the right adjustment. I don’t think there’s anything that he can do that Devin hasn’t seen before.”
The rematch will be held at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.
