The bad blood may well be spilling over when George Kambosos Jr and Devin Haney clash in Melbourne today, as the pair battle it out to crown an undisputed lightweight champion.

Haney will be in hostile territory at Marvel Stadium as he puts his WBC belt on the line, while Australian Kambosos Jr defends his WBO, WBA and IBF straps against the American. Each fighter will also be looking to go undefeated in the main event contest, with Haney’s pro record standing at 27-0 (15 KOs), while Kambosos Jr is 20-0 (10 KOs). In his last outing, 28-year-old Kambosos Jr picked up a decisive win over Teofimo Lopez, dethroning the American with a split decision victory in November. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Haney edged out Joseph Diaz last April to retain his WBC title.

Kambosos Jr demanded two attempts to gain weight on Friday, before declaring it was “the art of war, baby, deception”. The Australian continued: “Let them believe it was done. Everything is for a cause, everything is for a process. Trust me. Tomorrow, just be here. The art of war, deception, maybe I did it on purpose. Haney, meanwhile, received a late boost from his father’s arrival in Australia. Bill Haney, who coaches his son, got a visa on short notice and will be in the WBC champions corner at Marvel Stadium.
