George Kambosos Jr. lost his WBA (Super), IBF, WHO and The Ring lightweight titles in a unanimous decision loss to Devin Haney in June 2022, making Haney the undisputed lightweight champion of the world.
Kambosos triggered his rematch clause and attempted to take the titles back the following October, but was defeated again. Both of these high profile losses (the only in his 22 fight pro career) came on his home turf of Melbourne, Australia.
Looking to rebound, Kambosos is stateside this weekend with a fight at the Firelake Arena in Shawnee, Oklahoma. There he will meet the experience Brit Maxi Hughes, hoping an impressive showing can catapult him towards another title fight.
San Diego’s Giovanni Santillan, 30-0 (16 KOs), is also on the card. He’s due to face the 24-6 Ecuadorian Erick Bone.
The undefeated Trey Isley is also set to compete. He will stake is 9-0 record against journeyman Antonio Todd, who is 14-8.
