Devin Haney vs George Kambosos 2: UK start time, how to watch, prediction, full card

Following a one-sided contest back in June, George Kambosos will put it all on the line in his second attempt at beating Devin Haney, and we’ve got all the details you need, including the UK start time.

Back in 2021, ‘The Emperor’ collided with Teofimo Lopez, and nobody gave him a prayer. However, in a testament to his powers of self-belief, the Australian dug deep and produced an incredible upset to become the undisputed champion of the world. Prior to the bout, he entertained the fans with his witty trash-talk. But it wasn’t until this victory that he proved he could back up his boasts.

In the months that followed, Kambosos milked every last moment of his achievement, appearing on talk shows and calling out every fighter in the division. His fame shot through the roof, with the Aussie quickly being linked to a super fight with Vasyl Lomachenko at the 53,359-seater Marvel Stadium in Melbourne.

However, due to the conflict in Ukraine, his rumoured bout with the pound-for-pound legend failed to come to fruition. Consequently, he needed to find a new opponent. Thus Haney got the call and capitalised on his opportunity.

The American dominated the contest, picking his opponent off at will en route to a comfortable decision victory. And now, with his career on the line, the former champion will do whatever it takes to get his belts back.

Devin Haney vs George Kambosos 2: Prediction

With the first fight so conclusive, we didn’t really need a second bout. But due to the recent rematch clause epidemic, we’re here again.

Throughout training camp, Kambosos will have worked tirelessly on developing a new game plan. However, it’ll be difficult for him to implement any changes. The 29-year-old relies on his engine and warrior spirit. But considering his adversary had an answer for everything he threw, the only chance the Australian has, is to throw the kitchen sink and hope for the best. And while this may work out in his favour, it could end in disaster.

Haney has a fantastic boxing IQ and unlike Lopez, he won’t let his ego fly off the rails. Once again, he’s shown his minerals by travelling to his opponent’s backyard, and while Kambosos has a history of pulling off the impossible, we’re expecting the American to win this bout comfortably and possibly even secure a late stoppage.
