It took months of negotiations but Devin Haney is finally set to challenge George Kambosos Jr for the undisputed lightweight title.
Haney, the 135-pound WBC champion, last played against JoJo Diaz in December, winning on points.
Kambosos Jr. shocked the world when he became the defending WBA, WBO, IBF and Ring Magazine champion in November, defeating Teofimo Lopez by split decision.
Discussions immediately began on Kambosos Jr.’s next opponent, with Vasyl Lomachenko being the early favorite for the fight in Australia.
But Loma’s decision to take time off from boxing following the Russian invasion of Ukraine allowed Haney to take a seat at the negotiating table.
Haney will travel to Oz after signing with Top Rank and Lou DiBella to fight Kambosos Jr. with all the marbles on the line – and without the presence of father and trainer Bill.
When does Haney play Kambosos Jr.?
- Haney’s big match with Kambosos Jr. takes place in the UK on Sunday June 5th in the early hours of the morning.
- The fight will take place at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.

- Ringwalks for the Main Event are expected around 4am ET, with the fight starting in Oz in the afternoon.
