Haney Defeats Kambosos Jnr, Again

Devin Haney is now two-for-two in his fights in Australia outpointing t George Kambosos in his home country on Sunday afternoon at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia via the scores of 119-109 and 118-110 2x.

Barring the first two rounds, it was all Haney, as it became a gradual beatdown - with Haney landing a slew of right hands that boxing hall-of-famer Andre Ward commented as "disrespectful" on the telecast. As Haney stood in front of Kambosos Jnr, and simply beat him up - all night long.

The stats say the same thing, as Haney landed 114 out of 232 power shots, while Kambosos only landed 50 of 181. A two-to-one difference.

In the ninth round Kambosos Jnr was cut, and a bloody mess. Kambosos would finish, but it was minor victory as the war was already lost.

"I knew that he was looking for the jab. So, my team wanted me to show other tools in my arsenal. My dad {head trainer Bill Haney} wanted me to throw the hook more. But I feel that the right hand was what won me the fight tonight. When he first came out, I didn’t expect him to be switching. But I caught on to his timing and his angles, and I started to pick my shots more. Against a southpaw, the right hand is always on the money. That’s what happened," said Haney.“I should definitely be on the pound-for-pound rankings. In the first fight, they said that all I had was my jab. Today, I came in and showed them my right hand. I showed how versatile I am. I came to Australia not once, but twice. I beat this man twice in his hometown. I definitely deserve to be in the pound-for-pound rankings.
