Matchroom Boxing Chairman Eddie Hearn is hoping to make an undisputed unified lightweight title bout between his client Devin Haney and George Kambosos Jr. in the near future.
Hearn spoke with iFL TV following Kambsos Jr.'s upset win over Teofimo Lopez this past Saturday night in New York City and said the Haney-Kambosos Jr. matchup is the one that makes the most sense next. Haney has to handle his business with Joseph Diaz Jr. first, the pair will meet this Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada for Haney's WBC lightweight title.
"The obvious thing is to fight Devin Haney for all the belts. That’s the fight, but Devin has got to beat JoJo [this Saturday]," Hearn said (h/t Boxing Scene). "You just had a situation there where the underdog just won, so Devin has got to be switched on. I’d love to work with George and take him to Australia. That’s the dream. They come from Australia and beat Teofimo Lopez to win all the belts. It’s unbelievable."
