George Kambosos Jr, Devin Haney Stare Intensely At Final Presser
It’s almost time.
WBO, IBF and WBA lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr (20-0, 10 KOs) got together with WBC titleholder Devin Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) and engaged in a tense, serious face off ahead of their clash on Sunday in Australia — Saturday evening in the US – for the right to be the undisputed champion.
“It has been a long, hard journey. I’m ready. All the moments have got me ready again, and I will shock the world again. Underdog? Beautiful. We’re ready,” Kambosos said on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Haney said, “It will be very satisfying (to win). I did it against all odds. I wouldn’t say stacked against me, but it wasn’t working in my favor.
“They did everything they can to put me at a disadvantage. It’s going to make it that much sweeter. I look forward to bringing the belts back and showing my dad what we accomplished.”
Haney is undefeated in all 27 of his pro fights. The most recent was over Joseph Diaz in convincing fashion, sealing the victory by unanimous decision.
Kambosos has been on top of the lightweight division ever since his stunning upset victory against former top dog Teofimo Lopez in November. That fight was named FIGHT SPORTS’ Upset of the Year.
The co-main event in Australia will feature two-time bantamweight title challenger Jason Moloney against Filipino standout Aston Palicte.
