Devin Haney will look to make it back-to-back wins over George Kambosos Jr when the pair clash in Melbourne again this weekend.
Four months after Haney, 23, outpointed the Australian at Marvel Stadium to become undisputed lightweight champion, the American will again enter hostile territory for a rematch with Kambosos Jr, 29, at the Rod Laver Arena.
Haney remained unbeaten and added the WBA, WBO and IBF titles to his WBC belt by outpointing Kambosos Jr in June, emerging as a 116-112, 116-112 and 118-10 winner on the judges’ cards – with only the latter score reflecting the American’s dominance that day.
On Saturday, Kambosos Jr (20-1, 10 knockouts) will have the backing of a home crowd once more as he faces Haney (28-0, 15 KOs) in another main-event contest and looks to avenge the sole defeat of his professional career.
