The series of great professional boxing lightweight matches will end this weekend with a match between Vasily Lomachenko and Richard Commey. The meeting of these two former world champions was preceded by two clashes last week.
The one in which Devin Haney defeated Joseph Diaz and also the one in which Gervonta Davis was better than Isaac Cruz. Prior to that, we followed the fight for three world titles in which George Kambosos Jr. surprisingly became the new champion by defeating Teofimo Lopez.
Kambosos then visited the other two mentioned matches, after which he returned to Australia. So Lomachenko and Commey will not watch this match from the audience, but they will certainly watch it from home with great interest.
"The fight between Lomachenko and Commey is very good. Look at the Top 10 of our division. We're all actually fighting each other, which is great." "Something like what the World Series Of Boxing did. The winners go on, while the losers go to other things, to hope they can rise and return again, "Kambosos said in an interview with Fighthype, immediately adding his match prediction: "It's a good fight, but I think Lomachenko will still be too much for Commey, and he's also looking for revenge.
I'm looking forward to the match against him because we all know him very well and see what he's capable of doing."
Kambosos on the next fight
Last week, Kambosos mentioned a match against Haney as his priority, which would bring in an absolute world champion in the 61.5kg category.
Now he has actually revealed that he doesn't care about the two of them, but that he thinks Lomachenko will initially seek redemption for last year's defeat. "He's fighting the boxers Teofimo was fighting, but I think he's obviously interested in the belts.
But maybe his desire is to meet Lopez first and avenge the defeat, purely to leave that behind" "After that we can do that big fight. Like I said, I will give a chance to him or Devin Haney, it depends on who the match makes more sense to, "he concluded.
What George is sure of is that his first title defense will take place on his home turf in Australia. For now, it seems that no potential opponent or promoter has absolutely anything against it. We have to wait impatiently for the next Kambosos match in which he will show his skills again and how ready he is, although the task will not be easy at all.
