Devin Haney played the role of spoiler last time he travelled down under. In front of George Kambosos Jr’s countrymen, Haney took a unanimous decision win to become the first undisputed champion in the four-belt era. Kambosos triggered a rematch clause in the fight contract and here we are to do it all again.
This time around Haney and Kambosos are at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. There Haney will stake his WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO and The Ring lightweight titles. After his last win over Kambosos, Haney improved his undefeated record to 28-0.
The loss to Haney was Kambosos first ever defeat. His record now stands at 20-1. He’ll be eager to even the score with the American and win back the belts he secured with a split decision over Teofimo Lopez in 2021.

Devin Haney’s incredible rise continued earlier this year when he became the undisputed world champion at 135lbs with victory over George Kambosos.
The Las Vegas based fighter was far too good for Kambosos as he dominated from the first bell, and he’ll be looking to do the same in this rematch that was agreed when the original fight contract was signed.
Can Kambosos do anything different? Or will Haney be too good again?
