Bob Arum Confirms Devin Haney v George Kambosos Rematch for October
Following his last match, against “Ferocious” George Kambosos Jr (20-1, 10 KO’s), undisputed lightweight champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (28-0, 15 KO’s) knew he wanted a quick turnaround. Haney had signed on for an immediate rematch with Kambosos. Yet in the aftermath of their duel, Ferocious didn’t seem so gung-ho to do it again. Thankfully that has all changed! This is because Haney’s promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, had just revealed the penciled in fight date with Fight Hub TV.
“He’s [Haney] signed, we’re all committed. We’ve made a deal and we’re not going to renege on the deal…October 16 in Australia, 15 here in the United States…it will not be a big 50,000 seat arena like last time.”
Truthfully speaking, given the dominance that Haney displayed, few are giving Ferocious much of a shot in the rematch. Assuming that The Dream does walk away victorious for the second time, the question will immediately become: who’s next? The first few obvious choices would be Regular WBA 135-pound champion Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia or the well-respected Vasiliy Lomachenko, who is expected to return to the sport in short order. First though, let’s make sure that Haney gets past Kambosos.
