Kambosos’ stylish response to heartbreaking defeat

The Australian said he would learn from the loss but some don’t think he should step into the ring with Haney again, with many believing the American was on a different level.

“He just boxed his match,” Kambosos said.

“He moved, he boxed, he didn’t want to come to the fight too much but it’s his game. I give him respect. I will change a few things and get it back at the end of this year.

After a “conservative” start, Kambosos landed a big right shot on Haney in the second round.

But very quickly, the American took over and asserted his boxing smarts with his impressive punch that lands continuously in Sunday’s world lightweight title fight at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium.

In a game of cat and mouse, Haney’s speed was like never seen on Australian shores with the two men like cats on a tin roof.

“He’s growing with confidence,” Barry Michael said at the end of round three.

“The jab has Haney ahead at this point.”
