Boxing, Devin Haney dominates Camposos in Australia: he is the undisputed world champion in light weight
Devin Haney defeated guest house George Camposos Jr. in Australia by unanimous decision (118-110, 116-112, 116-112) and became the first undisputed lightweight champion in the four belts era. Already holding the WBC World Lightweight Championship since November 9, 2019, the 23-year-old American snatches away other belts: WBA (Super), IBF and WBO. Jorge Camposos’ reign lasted quite a bit, less than a year, just long enough to show himself to the world with a completely different personality than the boxer who managed to wow everyone by defeating Teofemo Lopez as an underdog in November 2021 at Madison Square Garden. The first defense—after skipping the match against Lomachenko due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine—starts out in the worst way since the days before the fight: Kambosos is tense, trying to provoke Haney, even lacking weight on the first try.

Then a word on the ring. In front of 41,000 at the Marvel Arena in Melbourne, the script for the match is profoundly different from that against Teofimo Lopez. No wild exchange from the first episode. Devin Haney makes Mayweather readable as an Eve strategy but impossible to contain. Using the punch is fine (333 strikes were attempted, according to Compubox), shortening the distance when he can, and Kambosos struggling to solve the mystery. The only second round that Camposos has undoubtedly won is the 10th. For the rest, it’s up to the American, even if two judges award Australia four rounds.
Now there is a reactivation condition: “We’ll fight again, I have to improve some things“, reassured Camposos who is off the throne in Australia but will try again by the end of the year. Lots of reactions from the boxing world. Currently promoter for Ryan Garcia,” says Oscar de la Hoya, currently Ryan Garcia “All roads lead“To the young American of Mexican descent. Garcia has to challenge Fortuna, then he can take on Gervonta Davis. And for Camposos and Hani, watch out for the third wheel called Vasyl Lomachenko:”He is defending his country (Ukraine edition) – says Bob Arum – The city in which he lives is located 10 kilometers north of Odessa. Hopefully he can fight for the world title soon.”. we will see. At the moment, history says that the undisputed champion is 23 years old and unbeaten. The last undisputed lightweight champion was Pernell Whitaker in 1990.
