Via Sean Jones: George Kambosos Jr says Devin Haney will be running after he gets a taste of his power on June 5 at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
Kambosos, 28, says he’s been looking for some sprinters to help him adapt to the run Haney will do at night, but it’s too expensive.
Australian Kambosos has cut his job as he has slow feet and his calm fighting style would be perfect for the sportier Haney to take advantage of.
Unified lightweight champion Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) announced that he would let WBC champion Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) run, and then he would follow him and “drown him.”
Without the punching power, it would be difficult for the Kambosos to do anything to Haney once he got to him. Kambosos is a dexterous boxer who was lucky enough to fight an injured and drained Teofimo Lopez last November.
If Kambosos was fighting the version of Teofimo that beat Vasyl Lomachenko a year earlier, he was in for a long night last November.
George Kambosos Jr. “Whatever they bring to the table, it won’t be enough. Fight Hub TV about Devin Haney.
The one thing Kambosos has for him besides the hometown advantage is that Haney won’t have his trainer/father, Bill Haney for the fight. Bill is not allowed to enter this country due to a conviction from 30 years ago.
Whether that will be enough of an advantage for the Kambosos to win the fight is a wonder question. Haney has a game plan on how to beat the Kambosos now, so he really won’t need his dad there.
Haney will steer the journey, and if there’s a problem, he’ll enlist professional trainer Yoel Judah to assist in the fight.
Judah has seen fighters like Kambosos many times in his career, and he knows what to do if plan A doesn’t work for Haney.
“Devin Haney, once he feels the power, he loves to run. So he will definitely run,” Kambosos Jr. continue.
“I went to the sports track, looking for sprinters and sprinters, cross country runners, race partners. It would cost me too much to carry these people, and the insurance wasn’t high enough for me.
“June 5, I will be doing business. I will let him run and chop him & drowned him,” Kambosos said of his plans for Haney.
