By Sean Jones: Devin Haney’s father, Bill Haney, says former bantamweight champion George Kambosos Jr is “in trouble” next Saturday night when the two meet for a rematch on October 15 at Rod Laver Stadium. in Melbourne, Australia.
Taron Haney vs. Kambosos Jr II will begin at 10:35 pm ET on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and ESPN+.
Kambosos (20-1, 10 KOs) is getting a second shot against Haney (28-0, 15 KOs) despite losing a one-sided 12-round unanimous decision last June in Melbourne in front of 41,129 fans.
After this loss, Kambosos, 29, has been keeping tight-lipped, speaking to very few journalists, which is not surprising given his idiocy at the time. when he fought with Haney.
No one will take Kambosos seriously if he starts talking this time about how to beat Haney. Of course, Kambosos has a lot to show if he wants to win back all the fans he lost last June.
You can argue that almost no one believes that Kambosos will regain the “beautiful belts” that he lost last summer against Haney. The problem is, Kambosos has no talent, and he shows it cannot convert to B, C, D, or E systems and Haney.
Smart fighters always have a backup plan in case things don’t go their way, but not the Kambosos. When Haney started to panic, he stuck with this evil plan that he came to fight with.
This could be the last we see of Kambosos in the ring as he could retire if Haney beats him again.
Look at it this way; The chances of Kambosos getting another world title after this fight are slim, and it would be a big shock for him if he goes back to fighting unknown fighters that he had to deal with before he was lucky enough to win. on the wounded old man. Join heavyweight champion Teofimo Lopez in November 2021.
It seems that the Kambosos payday will be reduced significantly after Haney’s second loss, and I can’t imagine that he would be willing to fight for the money he used to earn after making so much dough in two fights with Devin.
In the main support fight, Jason Moloney (23-2, 18 KOs) will fight Nawaphon Kaikanha (51-1-1, 46 KOs) in a WBC bantamweight title eliminator.
“I’ve been looking for him, George, and Jim. The things he said before, I will not dwell on it. I wouldn’t have run at that time if I had been around, but I’m here with Devin now, and we’ll talk to him again next Sunday,” Bill Haney told Fighthype about the Devin Haney vs. George Kambosos match. Jr.
“We have a week, seven days left, and we are good, and the weight is coming out well. I know you don’t want to hear that. You thought I was going to say he was struggling, but so far, so what? You’re in trouble, George.
“If he still hasn’t received the message it’s because I was on the plane looking for him. I came out in an uber looking for him,” Bill Haney said of him looking for Kambosos, who was cheap enough to reunite with Devin.
“I was on the beach looking for him and anyone who represents him. We are here, and we are ready. Like I said, whoever talks s***t, double because that’s what we do.
“I don’t know where they are [Team Kamboso Jr] They have what they are trying to do, but it won’t work. Devin spent my whole life, and I spent a large part of my life, chasing those belts,” Bill Haney said of Devin’s four heavyweight titles.
“This is not something to take for granted. We’re based in Melbourne, and we’re excited about the plans for this thing. We got a chef and strength & conditioning coach, and we got a good guy coming in. He will join today. This is part of our team.
“There are a lot of haters. I expect hate from people who don’t understand because it can be true hate. They only refuse because they are rooted in weakness. It doesn’t matter. This is the fun of sports.
“But when you talk about some guys in the business who represent other camps, these girls are crazy about the s***t they say is hate. I mean hate in a bad way.
“Give us the B-side every day and call the B-side ‘breaking barriers’ because we are breaking barriers and giving opportunities to other fighters.
“Every time you see Devin, you’re going to see a fighter who’s getting better. He’s still not at his level, and he’s one of the top fighters in the world in my opinion.
“We need an opportunity to prove that. As soon as we run this business with George Kambosos on October 16th, everyone can have it. I want everyone to double down on everything you said.
“Don’t get out of it. Anyone who says something. When we’re done with this business, you’ve got a step. They all can get it. The first one who stands up and raises his hand wants to get out and let the world know that he really is.” you can beat Devin,” said Bill when asked who Haney will fight next after defeating Kambosos Jr.
“We don’t want anyone to just whisper to her. We want you to tell the world and stand on it, let’s go out and do it. Let’s go out and do you wrong, or you do us wrong.
“Don’t whisper to him. Double down on it. We are planning to hold this event with George Kambosos, God willing, on October 16 at the Rod Laver Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. We want to make the best fights happen. Loma, Shakur, it doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t matter.
“Teofimo Lopez, Regis Prograis, anyone in or around his division. Devin could be the first fighter to hold undisputed in two weight classes. Also, it’s about continuing his legacy , continue to grow and grow, and solve more challenges.
“If they don’t try to make the fight happen at 135, then, of course, Devin will go up to 140. If he has a problem in the last days of him at 135 making weight, but I’m telling them right now. Y’all talk all that s***t. Don’t be afraid now,” said Bill.
