George Kambosos Jr and Devin Haney have finally agreed a deal to fight one another for the undisputed world lightweight championship.
All the belts will be on the line at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia on June 4.
All the details were officially announced at a press conference Down Under with the WBA, IBF and WBO champion Kambosos in attendance while WBC titlist Haney and his father and trainer Bill spoke via satellite link from America.
“After five years of chasing championship glory abroad and fighting in enemy territory, I return home to defend what I have conquered in the boxing world, my world lightweight titles,” said Kambosos.
Known as ‘The Emperor’ Kambosos travelled to New York to take on and defeat Teofimo Lopez to become the number one in the division. The unbeaten 28-year-old (20-0, 10 KOs) now seeks to continue to build his legacy by leaving no doubt as to who the main man at 135lbs is.
“I am very excited and hungry to continue building my legacy, and I will be victorious by any means necessary on June 4 when Haney steps up into the lion’s den of Marvel Stadium against this Aussie Greek lion. I will take not only his belt but put a serious dent in his young career.”
Haney became a promotional free agent recently having worked with Matchroom USA since 2019. The 23-year-old (27-0, 15 KOs) has signed a deal which will see him work with Top Rank and DiBella Entertainment for this event.
“I began my career fighting in small bars in Mexico. Now I’m on the cusp of greatness showcasing my skills on the world’s stage fighting for lightweight supremacy,” said Haney.
“I didn’t come this far to only come this far. Come June 4, I claim my place in history and add to my legacy! Undisputed lightweight king… I’m coming for all the belts!”
