Devin Haney’s big joy: his father was given a visa. But there is also bad news…


American WBC lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg) Devin Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) with a high, but still not 100% probability, will receive a powerful positive charge right before the upcoming fight for the title of absolute champion division against Australian George Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs), which will be held on June 5 in Melbourne (Australia).

Today it became known that the father and coach of Devin, Bill Haney, was issued a tourist visa, and now he can travel to Australia. Recall that until today, Bill was forbidden to cross the border of Australia and because of this, Devin spent the final part of the preparation for the battle under the guidance of Yoel Judah directly on the Green Continent.

At the same time, Haney Sr. still needs to be in time for the start of the fight, and there is just nothing left for the flight. According to the latest reports, the American champion side is now making efforts to arrange a flight for Bill. At best, he will arrive in Melbourne on the morning of June 5 (local time) and just in time for the start of the boxing show.

Ware is currently under investigation.

Meanwhile, Kambosos told how he plans to surprise Haney.
