DEVIN HANEY VS. GEORGE KAMBOSOS JR. 2 GOES DOWN UNDER AGAIN ON OCTOBER 15

America’s dream maker Devin Haney and Australia’s Ferocious George Kambosos Jr are primed for a second showdown in Victoria, Australia to establish ultimate supremacy in boxing’s hottest lightweight division.

Undisputed lightweight world champion Devin “The Dream” Haney will defend all the belts against Australian “Ferocious” George Kambosos Jr. on Sunday October 16 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. Haney-Kambosos 2 will be broadcast in prime time in the United States, live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes & ESPN+ and live on Main Event and Kayo in Australia.

Haney and Kambosos first squared off June 6 in Melbourne as a Victoria-record boxing crowd of 41,129 fans packed Marvel Stadium to watch the world’s best lightweights unify the division. The unbeaten Haney neutralized the previously unbeaten Kambosos with a clear points victory to become the undisputed world lightweight champion.

Promoted by Top Rank, Devin Haney Promotions, DiBella Entertainment, Ferocious Promotions, Duco Events, and TEG Sport, Haney-Kambosos 2 will feature a world-class undercard, and a pumped up Kambosos hell-bent on revenge. Tickets to this epic rematch will go on-sale on Thursday 25 August at www.tegsport.com.au

DEVIN HANEY QUOTE 

“George Kambosos is quiet right now like he should have been before our first fight. I wish him a healthy training camp.  I’m expecting a hungry and determined Kambosos on October 16th in Melbourne. I will be prepared for any adjustment he brings. This is a great opportunity to gain more Aussie fans and add to my legacy.” 

BOB ARUM QUOTE (TOP RANK CHAIRMAN)

“Devin Haney is a special fighter, but you can never count out George Kambosos Jr., especially when his most ardent supporters will be out in full force,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. “These are the two best lightweights in the world, and it will be another memorable event in Melbourne.”

GEORGE KAMBOSOS JR. QUOTE

“I am looking forward to October 16th at Rod Laver Arena and that’s where I will do my talking. Inside the ring.”

LOU DIBELLA QUOTE (PRESIDENT DIBELLA ENTERTAINMENT)

"On October 16, George Kambosos Jr. is again the hungry challenger, chasing Devin Haney’s belts, with a chance to regain it all on home soil,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. "Kambosos-Haney 1 was the Devin Haney show. George is going to have to fight a completely different fight to get that victory and he knows it. That alone assures an action-packed rematch. The odds are against George. He needs to defy the odds yet again."
