George Kambosos Jr. vs. Devin Haney
IBF, WBA, WBC, WBO lightweight titles (135 pounds, 12 rounds)
This is going to be a battle of quantity vs. quality. Kambosos is a busy fighter. He upset Teofimo Lopez because of his busy workrate and the ability to steal close rounds. He hopes his workrate will wear Haney down in the later rounds. Haney is a much more skilled, slick boxer. He has a higher connect rate and will happily play the role of the counter puncher to let Kambosos over commit to punches and leave openings. Kambosos has the upset win over Lopez to his credit, but Haney has the more impressive wins on his resume with decisions over former featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa and former three-class world champion Jorge Linares.
Haney is currently a -170 betting favorite while Kambosos is betting at +140.
