Kambosos activated a rematch with Haney: the fight will again take place in Australia


Australian ex-world lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg) George Kambosos (20-1, 10 KOs) announced the activation of the immediate revenge point with his American offender Devin Haney (28-0, 15 KOs), to whom he lost the fight for the title of absolute division champion on June 5 in Melbourne (Australia).

“Yes, the revenge will take place, 100 percent. I activated the rematch clause. The Emperor is dead, but the Fierce is still alive, and I will return,” said Kambosos.

According to him, the fight will again take place in Australia.

“We haven’t finalized the venue yet,” George said. – There are options with Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. But it will definitely be in Australia, which is great.”

Kambosos is sure that he will succeed on the second attempt:

“I know I can beat Haney and win a rematch. I’ll just make some changes. But it’s my destiny to show how great I am and get the titles back. My confidence didn’t suffer, it just wasn’t my day. No excuses though. He did what he had to do with his jab. He is a skillful guy, but next time I have to be smarter with my game plan. I’m blessed to get another chance, few Australian boxers can say they’ve had three title fights in a row.”

Haney has previously stated that he hopes to fight Lomachenko instead of a rematch with Kambosos.
