Haney in trouble? Roy Jones about the fight of a compatriot with Kambosos


Boxing legend American Roy Jones Jr. suggests that his compatriot Devin Haney (25-0, 17 KOs) may have serious problems in an away fight with Australian George Kambosos Jr. (20-0, 10 KOs). The iconic boxer does not seem to be sure that the fight will do without refereeing bias.

Kambosos and Haney will fight on June 5 at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, and the title of undisputed lightweight champion will be at stake. The American agreed to the fight, despite the fact that in case of victory he would be forced to fight here again with the Australian.

Jones comments: “Devin showed incredible courage. The boy has character. This is not a joke to you – to go to fight in Australia. And it shows how much he really craves all these titles. Yes, I will not hide the fact that I am very impressed. But you need to remember that in Australia you will have to face unprecedented pressure. In combat, you need to wear down your opponent and stop him with blows to the body. If you can’t stop it, it will be extremely difficult to count on a positive judicial decision.”

We also have a prediction for this fight. In the meantime, the fighters exchange pleasantries in front of the cameras. Haney said that “Kambosos is kind of stoned” and called him a “fucking clown.” The Australian even considers the American “a miserable rat and a snitch.” Ryan Garcia commented on the skirmish: he explained the “mind games” of Kambosos on the fingers on the eve of the fight with Haney.
