George Kambosos Jr has one goal this coming Saturday.
Kambosos will meet undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney on Sunday (Saturday in the U.S.) in Melbourne, Australia. He’s seeking redemption after being upset by Haney; he lost the belts he once held by unanimous decision.
“It’s going to be sweeter this time, getting them back and becoming a two-time undisputed champion. This here is serious legacy, not only in Australian boxing but world boxing.
“… I can’t wait to get in there. I’ve been patient, but I am champing at the bit as well. This is legacy right here,” Kambosos told the Sydney Morning Herald.
The crowd was firmly behind hometown fighter, Kambosos, in their first meeting in June.
But Haney slowly broke down Kambosos thanks to his jab that became so strong that Kambosos was never able to get his offensive skills going. Haney outworked Kambosos with defense, speed and his overall boxing ability, eventually sealing the deal for the four titles of the lightweight division.
Kambosos had a similar upset story when he won three belts off of Teofimo Lopez back in November 2021.
“What do you think? Two-time undisputed, two times written off, and bounced back against all odds to do it again. I get goosebumps, but I know this is my destiny. This is the way it’s meant to be…,” Kambosos added.
“I’m going to come back 100 times and make sure I avenge that loss. That’s just the competitive nature in who I am. That’s why I know I will be champion again.”
