George Kambosos Jr and Devin Haney will settle any disputes in the lightweight division tonight, squaring off for all four major world titles and crowning an undisputed champion in Melbourne, Australia.
John Hansen will be on the round-by-round call tonight, with updates coming in this stream starting from 9 pm ET:
The first-ever four-belt undisputed lightweight champion will be crowned on Saturday at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia, as IBF, WBA (super), and WBO titleholder and hometown favorite George Kambosos Jr. meets WBC titlist Devin Haney.
Kambosos shocked the world two days after U.S. Thanksgiving as he dropped and defeated Teofimo Lopez by split decision to win three-fourths of the 135-pound belts.
Haney makes the trek to Australia, having defended the WBC title four consecutive times. In 2021, Haney had perhaps his best performances to date in dominant victories over Jorge Linares and Jo Jo Diaz, respectively.
Who walks out of "The Land Down Under" with all four titles and make history.
DAZN will have live coverage of George Kambosos vs. Devin Haney beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
George Kambosos Jr. puts his WBO, WBA, IBF and WBC "franchise" lightweight titles on the line against WBC champion Devin Haney on Saturday, in the main event of a Top Rank card at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia (9 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+ with prelims at 7:30 on ESPN+).
Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) won his titles against Teofimo Lopez Jr. by unanimous decision in a big upset back in November. He was supposed to face Vasiliy Lomachenko, but Lomachenko decided to stay in his home country of Ukraine after the Russian invasion, and Haney got the call.
Despite fighting at home and having three of the four major belts, Kambosos is a slight underdog (+155) against Haney (-180), according to Caesars Sportsbook.

"I love the underdog status," Kambosos said during the final press conference on Friday. "They've been against me my whole career. They've been saying that my whole career. I'm still the top dog, and after Sunday, I'll remain the top dog."
Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) won the WBC interim title in 2019, but was then elevated to full champion when the WBC named Lomachenko its "franchise" champion. Haney has made four defenses, including a unanimous decision victory over Joseph "JoJo" Diaz in December.
"This is the biggest stage, but this is something that I have dreamed of," Haney said. "I knew that one day I would be here, but I didn't think that it would come this early, but I'm thankful. It's time ... I feel like I'm the far better fighter. I have far more skills than him."
