George Kambosos Jr wants to rewrite the record books and get his world titles back with a rematch against Devin Haney confirmed for Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne in October.
Kambosos surrendered his belts in their unification fight at Marvel Stadium in early June, with Haney declared undisputed lightweight world champion in a unanimous decision.
But the Sydneysider has enforced a rematch clause and Haney will again travel to Melbourne for a fight that the American said would “add to my legacy”.
The fight was confirmed on Tuesday, with Kambosos, who made wild predictions about his victory before the first fight, set to let his boxing do the talking this time.
“I am looking forward to October 16th at Rod Laver Arena and that’s where I will do my talking,” he said. “Inside the ring.”
Haney, who walked away with four world championship belts after the first fight in front of more than 42,000 people, said he expected his opponent to be better the second time around.
“I’m expecting a hungry and determined Kambosos on October 16th in Melbourne. I will be prepared for any adjustment he brings,” he said.
“This is a great opportunity to gain more Aussie fans and add to my legacy.”
