George Kambosos Jnr v Devin Haney WBA (Super), IBF, WBO Lightweight Title Fight Tips & Predictions
Unbeaten George Kambosos Junior will receive a hero’s welcome when he walks out at the Marvel Stadium this weekend as the lightweight champion of the world.
The Australian shocked a lot of people in November last year when he won a split decision over the impressive Teofimo Lopez to win the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and The Ring lightweight titles.
Many people did not give Kambosos Jnr a chance in that fight in New York, but he dug deep and put in the performance of his life to be crowned the champion.
Kambosos Jnr is undefeated with 20 wins from 20 fights with 10 coming by knockout and 10 on points. Basically, this guy can fight and can beat you any way he wants.
The Lopez fight was the biggest of his career – up until now – but he was also impressive in points decision win over Lee Selby that set up the Lopez fight.
Devin Haney is no mug. He has won all of his 27 fights – 15 by knockout and 12 on points. He has to be given a lot of credit for taking this fight in Australia. He will basically have the whole crowd against him, but he is confident in his own ability to get the job done.
Haney has beaten the likes of Jorge Linares, Yuriokis Gamboa, Zaur Abdullaev and Joseph Diaz, but the crowd in Melbourne will be very hostile.
The American holds the WBC belt and will be looking to wrestle the other straps from Kambosos Jnr.
I don’t like thinking that some fighters get home decisions, but I cannot see Kambosos Jnr losing on points. There would be a full-scale riot. If Haney is going to win, then he needs to knock the Aussie out.
To be honest, I cannot see that happening. This is Kambosos Jnr’s time. He cannot afford to drop his belts at the first time of asking. If he does, he could disappear from the big events for a while. I am backing him to take this fight on points.

George Kambosos Jnr v Devin Haney WBA (Super), IBF, WBO Lightweight Title Fight Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions
George Kambosos Junior: “Unfortunately, as we all know, Devin’s father Bill, is not here at the moment. Again, I have tried my best to help that situation but that’s on them. I really don’t know how they let this guy into the country, to be honest. I didn’t think they let informants into the country. This guy is an informant, this guy is a rat. I’ll tell you why, because in the Teofimo Lopez fight against a foreigner, his own countryman, he was messaging me, telling me all the details, every bit. Teo at the hookah lounge, Teo having problems with his wife. This is a rat, this is a rat, this is a snitch, this is an informant. Your own countryman and you’re going behind his back. So, you know what? On Sunday I am going to whip your arse and you know when you get back to Las Vegas? You’ll be on the lookout for Teofimo Lopez. Because he’ll be looking for you too. This guy acts like a gangster but he’s as fake as that belt.
Devin Haney: “A rat? What are you talking about? Do you know the definition of a rat? What was the consequence? I had both sides of it. If he won, I would fight Teo. If you win, I would fight you. Things have definitely been different without my father here, but the show must go on. This is a dream of mine. I wasn’t going to turn it down for anything. My dad, he instilled the right things into me. I’m ready. On fight night I will show it. My father isn’t here but I’m not leaving without those belts.’
