Devin Haney: George Kambosos Jr Doesn’t Need to Retire After His Losses

The undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney has some words of encouragement for his Saturday opponent, George Kambosos Jr.

Haney (28-0, 15 KOs) will defend his lightweight titles against Kambosos Jr. at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia this Saturday. Haney outshone the Australian fighter in all aspects in their first meeting and is expected to repeat the same feat the second time around as well.

Kambosos Jr. (20-1, 10 KOs) infamously snatched the lightweight titles from his American rival, Teofimo Lopez last year. Following the victory, Kambosos Jr. blatantly challenged every fighter at 135 lb and in came Haney, who got the better off the ‘Ferocious’ in his own backyard.

Ahead of the rematch with Haney, Kambosos Jr. has indicated that he might hang up his gloves if he loses to Haney again.

Many boxing fanatics believe that Kambosos Jr. has lost the most motivation to fight at this level.

Haney — who looks prepared for this Saturday — has shown great respect to his rival. Haney believes that Kambosos Jr. should not give up on this sport even if he loses in the rematch as he still has a lot to offer to the sport and the fans.

“He’s the one talking retirement. He’s still young and has a long career after this. Two losses doesn’t mean you can’t go out and compete with the best fighters in the world,” said Haneyon Wednesday.

“He should have been humble, and a gracious champion, but his head got big. No, of course not,” said Haney.
