After drawn out negotiations George Kambosos Jr. and Devin Haney will compete for the undisputed lightweight title on Saturday night.
Following his upset victory over Teofimo Lopez in November, Kambosos, the current WBA, WBO, IBF and WBC Franchise lightweight title holder, will be returning home for the epic clash. An expected sell-out crowd of over 50,000 will witness arguably the biggest fight in Australian history.
The man across the ring from him poses a serious threat to the Australian’s title reign. 23 year-old Devin Haney holds the WBC belt and boasts a perfect 27-0 record.
The young American is tipped by many to be a potential superstar of the future, but to reach those heights he must first overcome his toughest test yet on away soil.
There seems to be little love lost between the pair, who have been going back and forth on social media and which culminated in their first meeting where Kambosos accused Haney of being a “Rat” and an “Informant”.
When is Kambosos v Haney?
The fight takes place on Saturday, June 4 (June 5 in Australia) at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
