Top Rank hosted the first press conference for the fight on June 4th between George Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) and Devin Haney (27-0, 15 KOs). They will face off in Marvel Stadium located in Melbourne Australia to fight for the Undisputed Lightweight Championship.
Kambosos Gets Personal and Calls Devin Haney a Rat and an Informant
Top Rank released the first press conference leading up to the big showdown that everyone is looking forward to because this fight is for all the belts in the lightweight division! The communication between Haney and Kambosos has been respectful and professional up until this press conference.
Upon his first opening statements, Kambosos jumps straight into personal attacks instead of focusing on boxing by trying to paint Devin Haney out to be an "informant" and a "rat." He starts off by saying the following:
know how they let this guy into the country to be honest I don't think they let informants into the country. This guy is an informant! This guy is a rat!" ~ Kambosos

Bob Arum Calls George Kambosos Out for His Antics
It's just trying to get into his head. I mean you know what are we are the CIA with informants and so forth? Even if we assume that Haney was tipping off Kambosos about certain problems that Lopez was having...those weren't secret.

"Haney Will Run For His Life" - George Kambosos (FightHype Interview)
He previously went from saying the following:
“Look, I’ve been a contender on the rise for a long time before I won these titles. So, I’ve been looking at all these guys. I’ve got notes on all these guys. I know how to beat all these guys and I will continue to beat all of them – one by one, round by round, one by one. So, look, I’m not gonna disrespect Devin Haney. He’s a good boxer. But he ain’t elite, and he will find that out the hard way.” ~ Kambosos
Now he is calling Devin Haney an informant, a snitch, and a fake gangster, but we all have recently seen what happens when a person does a ton of trash talk before a major fight.
Rolly Romero Gets Knocked Out by Gervonta Tank Davis
Now we are not saying that Kambosos will make the same mistakes that Rolly made against Gervonta "Tank" Davis, but if he does, he will become the next meme in boxing!
Prediction for Devin Haney vs George Kambosos
My prediction for the fight is that Devin Haney will outbox George Kambosos and make George regret saying everything that he has because he is now acting like Teofimo was before Teo lost to George. Haney's last opponent Jojo Diaz stated in a FightHype Interview that "Devin will walk through Kambosos."
This is going to be a great fight, and I can't wait to see it. To watch the full press conference, check out the link to it below:
