The most recent coming today at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne today with scores of 119-109, 118-110 and 118-110 allowing Haney to successfully retain his undisputed lightweight titles.
Kambosos Jnr changed his gameplan early, switching stances throughout the early rounds, but it didn’t take long for the undefeated Haney to quickly adapt, as he showcased his world-class skills, with the right hand, in particular, dominating the contest
Two flawless performances by Haney in Melbourne now who hopes he has now done enough to put himself in pound-for-pound discussions.
“I should definitely be in the pound-for-pound rankings,” Haney said before giving props to his opponent.
“He’s a warrior, I take my hat off to George Kambosos. When he first came out, I didn’t expect him to keep switching [stances] but I easily caught onto his timing and his angles.”
Kambosos Jnr. put on an improved performance and advised that we definitely haven’t seen the last of him.
“I tried my heart out and Devin, I wish you all the best in the future,” Kambosos Jnr. said in his post-fight interview.
