Kambosos Middle East offer on the table

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Undisputed lightweight champion George Kambosos has been offered to defend against WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney in the Middle East.

“I spoke to Lou DiBella and he’s doing his work in Australia,” Eddie Hearn told DAZN. “We’ve had an offer from the Middle East for Haney-Kambosos. This is one we’re edging towards where we’re receiving a firm offer for. For me, it’s the only fight in the division.

“I know Top Rank is talking about Lomachenko against Kambosos. We need to wrap up this undisputed situation We need to know who is the real champion. It’s a natural fight. Haney against Kambosos is a brilliant fight

“We can do it Sunday in Australia; we can do it in the United Arab Emirates. We can do it in America; Devin Haney is ready to go for that fight. He won’t price himself out. He realizes that George Kambosos is the king of the division right now. He’s the one with most of the belts, and he’s the one that put in a good performance the last time out with a big win “

  • They want it in the middle east because Haney is a Muslim and everyone would be paid off to give Haney the win, Kambosos Jr would need a KO to win which he prob could do but still keep the fight in Australia. Fk the UAE and what there paying.
    Jr in 2!

  • This would be a great opportunity for a kind of mini tournament for all the belts. Basically have Lomachenko against Davis (or… somebody) and the winner gets the winner of Kambosos vs Haney.

    • I’VE SAID THIS OVER AND OVER… THAT’S THE ONLY FIGHT THAT MAKES SENSE… LET’S CLEAR UP THE LIGHTWEIGHT PICTURE ONCE AND FOR ALL… KAMBOSOS VS HANEY… THE ONLY THING I DON’T LIKE ABOUT IT IS THEY WANT THE FIGHT IN THE MIDDLE EAST… NO!!! GO TO KAMBOSOS’S HOME TOWN COUNTRY WHATEVER AND BEAT HIS ASS RIGHT WHERE KAMBOSOS LIVES… HANEY CLAIMS HE’S WILLING TO GO ANYWHERE TO FIGHT LAMBOSOS THEN PROVE IT!!!!

      • Go where Kambosos and Haney get the most money. If George can pocket another $100K to take his belts to the Middle East, he should consider doing so.

  • haney tries too hard. he will get caught because he takes risks he doesnt need to. he tries to be a puncher and he simply is not. this is an ugly fight and is really a b- deal. Dumb, yet it will de better than Lopez does because people like the haney story and kambosis is living the boxing dream , having pulled the upset that leads to real money, but haney will peck and swing to a split decision win. Forgettable. boxing is like waves on a lake…some good waves then a flat day or two. this fight is a flat lake meh day to me…BUT it will give belt cred to haney and he will talk smack to everybody who didnt give him a chance…and the best at 135 (Lomo) will be sitting in the stands…smh

  • Could be a good fight to watch but Kambosos will have a hard time finding Haney who is a slick fighter not a seek and destroy fighter like Lopez Jr….

  • We know Kambosos is the top title belt dog at 135. However, let’s finish clean up matters with Kambosos vs. Haney (in Australia).

    Loma can either take a “stay busy fight” or stays sharp in the gym to later fight the Kambosos/Haney winner. Davis probably does not want to deal with Loma and DEFINITELY NOT Isaac Cruz. Heck, if he feeling “froggy” enough, maybe Loma can take a look at fighting Isaac Cruz?

    Out of this entire adventure at 135, I feel sorry for Isaac Cruz because I am not sure who wants to deal with Cruz’s Pit Bill (PB) aggression and PB bites. Hopefully, Isaac Cruz is working on a distance closing/educated jab.

  • Haney vs Kambosos will happen, and most likely in Australia. Kambosos wants to fight in his home land to feel his people around, cheering for him, not because the judgement advantage of fighting at home. Haney should fight Kambosos flawlessly, winning rounds clear, dominant, because he doesn’t have the power to deter or KO him. I see Kambosos more intense against Haney than he was vs Lopez. I doubt to see Haney returning undefeated to USA.

  • And Ryan Garcia will continue to take to social media claiming that he sent the winner a contract!!

  • there is absolutely nothing to clear up WBC president already said Kambosos is the undisputed champion forget haney let him fight Tank let Loma get first crack at Kambosos hes willing to go down under

    • Is that the same WBC President that created the “franchise” championship and declared Haney to be the World champion, while collecting sanctioning fees from both and the “interim world champion” at 135 lbs.?

      Glad he brought clarity to the situation.

    • Loma is a loser. He’s got nothin on the table, no belts, nothin. He has to wait his turn like the rest. How about give others a go. What’s the rush.?

  • Stay in australia george… u done the hard yards brother.. time too treat australia the best country in the world too a big showdown… bash Haney down under

  • George ain’t playing no tune up fight how can you not like this guy need more like him uselessly when a fighter pull an upset they go home for a tune up fight then fight top 10 fighter need more like him

    • Even if he loses to Haney, he’s earned a lot of respect and should get more solid fights and paydays. Especially the paydays.

  • I’m glad y’all are counting out Tank but he will destroy that whole division Haney Lomo Kam and the rest with skills and power. None of them possess the power or chin to handle Tank.

  • “We need to know who the real champion is?” We do know and it’s Kambosos. He beat the champion, Lomachenko. Hearn and Haney act like we didn’t witness the WBC splintering their lightweight title for monetary gain. Lomo had the green belt and lost it to Kambosos, end of story.
