Lomachenko vs Kambosos Jr is set
“The vacant IBF lightweight title bout between Vasiliy Lomachenko and George Kambosos is set to take place in Perth, Australia on May 12, sources told @MikeCoppinger. The fight will be televised on ESPN in the evening of May 11 in the U.S.”
After defeating Teófimo López in a stunning upset back in late 2021, Kambosos Jr lost consecutive fights to Devin Haney. He did, however, make a big splash on his return to the ring by defeating Maxi Hughes last summer. Lomachenko, meanwhile, last fought in May 2023, which also came against Devin Haney.
Haney was the man who had his hand raised in victory, but a lot of fans and pundits feel as if that was the wrong result. Now, he has the chance to get back into the win column against a big name.
