Via Allan Fox: WBC Lightweight Champion Devin Haney Says He Will “Challenge” the things that 135 lb champion George Kambosos Jr agreed to do best and take them away from him.
Once Haney has effectively neutralized Kambosos’ attributes, he will be merciful, ready to defend himself to block his attacks.
Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) will face 28-year-old Australian Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) on June 5 for the undisputed lightweight title at Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, Australia. .
Kambosos’ win over injury and weight loss Teofimo Lopez last November hit his head, making him feel his potential, and it’s shocking how much the win has affected him. how.
The best thing Kambosos had for him was the fact that he was on the A side, and he was able to use that advantage to host a match against Haney in Australia.
With Haney as the visitor, he will need to come to a conclusion to beat the Kambosos as he doesn’t have enough strength to score a knockout.
“They say I’m boringbut Devin Haney does what Devin Haney does well,” Haney told DAZN Boxing Show. “It’s hard to knock my game off. I’ve been doing this for too long. But what I will do is accept George for his best, his best attributes, what he does best. ”
It will be interesting to see if the Kambosos will have a good plan B to bounce back as Haney scraps his counter punch and power game. If the fight turns into a duel, the Kambosos won’t stand a chance.
“I want to do [Vasily] Lomachenko fights,” Haney declared. “I wanted to make Gervonta Davis fight. Ryan Garcia is still on the list. I want to make the biggest battles happen. ”
“Tagoe is not a reliable opponent, and Ryan Garcia talked about this knockout, but he didn’t knock Tagoe out, so how much of a puncher is he really?
“When you’re saying all that, it doesn’t matter if you’re trying to survive or not. You’re going to do what you have to do to get him out of there,” Haney said, saying that Ryan didn’t knock Emmanuel Tagoe because he was on the defensive.
“We were very intimate and cool before the fight with Teo and after my fight with Jojo Diaz. I think there’s some trash talk going on, and I feel like he really doesn’t know how to talk trash because some things are off-limits, you just don’t say.
“He is a grown man and he knows the definition of the word ‘boy’ and the kind of language he uses. I have no respect for it at all, and I have zero tolerance at all,” Haney said.
