George Kambosos vs. Devin Haney fight: start time, how to watch, full card

Boxing champion George Kambosos Jr. has never had it easy in his career, but it’s exactly how the Australian likes it.

George Kambosos Jr. has built a career on baffling expectations and he will have to do so once again when he goes toe-to-toe with WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney.

Despite shocking the world when he defeated Teofimo Lopez last November to claim the WBA (Super), IBF and WBO titles, Kambosos will have to defy the odds to become the first man in the four-belt era to hold all lightweight belts. .

His win over Lopez may have made Kambosos the best dog in the division, but it hasn’t helped him get ahead with the bookies.

Kambosos is an odd $2.35 to Haney’s $1.64, while a tie is a lot of money at $17.

It is right where Kambosos wants to be and where he has spent his entire career.

He has fought and defeated world champions in his last three fights in former featherweight champion Lee Selby, former IBF lightweight king Mickey Bey and Lopez.

“It’s been a long and hard journey, everyone knows that,” Kambosos said at a news conference on Friday. “But I’m ready for Sunday. All those moments have prepared me for Sunday again and I will surprise the world again. Underdog, beautiful, we are ready.

“I’ve been through it all, so whatever comes to the table on Sunday, we’re ready. We are fully prepared and we are warriors. Whatever path we have to take, we are prepared.

“I love the underdog status, they’ve been against me my entire career. They’ve been saying that the whole race. But I am the boss and after Sunday I will continue to be the boss.

Kambosos delivered some brutal punches ahead of Sunday’s blockbuster as he waged a mental battle against Haney.

It remains to be seen how that will affect Haney come game time, but the American is confident he has put the verbal barbs aside.

When asked if he should be the favorite, Haney said he would let his gloves do the talking.

“I feel like I’m a much better fighter, I have a lot more skills than him and I’ll show it on Sunday,” Haney said. “It is for me to show myself in the ring. The betting odds don’t really matter because I’m going to show you. No matter what people say, anyone can say anything, but I’m levels above him.”

We’ll see on Sunday.
