ANDThis Friday we were close to seeing how George Kambosos Jr. throw away a golden opportunity unify titles in the light division, after could not give the weight of 135 pounds in the first instancealthough everything remained as an anecdote and there will be a fight in Australia.
It was just this afternoon, when ‘Ferocious’ Kambosos Jr. (20-0, 10 KOs) and Devin Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) stepped on the scale from melbournethough only the american boxer he was able to give the weight, marking 134.92 pounds.
The Australian passed in the first instance and after a lot of posing, as well as shouts from the fans who support him from his native country, the nervousness came, since he left a weight of 135.36 pounds and he was allowed to take it down within two hours at the latest or he would lose without getting into the ring.
The pressure was not in vain and after almost an hour and a half, the situation was fixed, Kambosos Jr. dropped 134.49 lbs on the scale to define that from Melbourne, Australia there will be unification fight.
Haney heated up the fight even more:
This function without a doubt leaves much expectation, since Kambosos Jr. exposes his three lightweight world titlesin this case, WBO, IBF and WBA, as well as The Ring, while Haney has in his possession the WBC. Whoever wins this Saturday will be the new undisputed monarch of the 135-pound division, so the pressure and attention are on both boxers.
Although something to add this day was that ‘The Dream’ Haney mocked that ‘Ferocious’ Kambosos Jr. could not with the floor.
“I am a true champion and true champions make weight”
The public was on him with jeers, but Haney kept the confidence during the interview and while waiting for his rival to return to mark the established weight.
