Greek Australian boxing champ George
Kambosos Jr. successfully made weight today at 134.08 pounds, just below the 135-pound limit ahead of his match tomorrow against Devin Haney.
During the weigh-in, Kambosos and Haney and their entourages came to blows and had to be separated, with promoter Lou DiBella conceding things had gotten “a little out of control”.
Foul-mouthed Haney supporters taunted the Kambosos camp with expletive-laden name callings such as “your mother’s a bitch” while DiBella threatened to eject the American world champion’s jeweller for aggressive behaviour toward a safety guard.
“You don’t desire to see that. It’s very easy to go from that to some thing dangerous,” DiBella said.
Kambosos (20-1, 10KO) initially missed weight on the eve of his first stoush with Haney (28-0, 15KO) before losing a unanimous points decision at Marvel Stadium.
He is a different beast entering the return bout as he bids to become the first Australian in boxing’s 18-year, four-belt era to unify a weight division by stripping Haney of his IBF, WBA, WBO and WBC straps.
“I’m ripped and ready,” Kambosos said.
“We put in the work. That’s a statement right there. We’ll make a statement tomorrow.”
“I haven’t shown too much in this camp but I’m gonna show it all tomorrow.
“We are ready and whatever he brings ain’t enough
