Devin Haney Considering To Move Up If No George Kambosos Rematch
It seems like George Kambosos Jr has a limited amount of time left before Devin Haney closes the door.
Haney said if he doesn’t rematch Kambosos, he won’t be in the lightweight division for any longer.
“We have to see if he [Kambosos] actually wants it, the second fight,” Haney told ThaBoxingVoice.
“If I don’t fight him, I don’t think I’ll be fighting at 135 any longer. We got to see. If he wants the fight, I’ll probably have to vacate because it’s a rematch clause.”
Boxing fans witnessed the statement Haney made after defeating Kambosos by unanimous decision this past Saturday.
It was Haney’s jab that caused the most trouble for his Australian opponent – a strategy Kambosos was unable to overcome.
Haney was the favorite going into the fight, but that wasn’t the first time Kambosos was the underdog.
He put on a Cinderella performance in November with a upset victory against Teofimo Lopez, gaining the three of four lightweight titles.
Now, Haney took the three belts – in addition to his own – becoming the ninth fighter to claim undisputed status.
If Haney does move up, it’s likely to be light welterweight, meaning a potential future match up against unified champion Josh Taylor.
Haney almost might be put against Regis Prograis, Jack Catterall and Jose Ramirez, to name a few.
But if he were to choose, he wants either Gervonta Davis or Vasiliy Lomachenko before he moves up.
“You can’t go fight another fight at 135 if he wants the fight. Loma and Tank, those are the fights that interest me the most, but I’ll fight anybody. My team will sit down and see what’s more interesting,” Haney said.
