Kambosos: Haney Didn’t Want To Fight, It Was Boring

Now that the dust has settled George Kambosos Jr has had a chance to review what went wrong for him in his defeat to Devin Haney.

The Australian lost a wide points decision to the American who has returned home to Las Vegas as undisputed lightweight champion with all four world titles.

After having plenty to say during fight week Kambosos was comprehensively outboxed by Haney. Yet as he told The Mail he doesn’t feel unhappy.

“How can I feel sad when the guy didn’t want to fight? It wasn’t like I got beat up. I’m not hurt at all. I feel like I’ve had half a fight — it was boring.”

“I have to be aware of his holding,” he assessed. “I have to be aware of changing my angles. Be a little bit sharper. I was off pace with a few things. Anyway … I’ll come back. Now I’ll see who the real people are there were with me for the right reason.”

Kambosos can of course trigger the rematch clause that was put in place during negotiations. Despite Haney performing on a different level to his opponent at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium yesterday there is still a chance for ‘Ferocious’ to level the score.
