George Kambosos Jr. went from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the totem pole. His vacillating position had nothing to do with his mentality but more so with a string of great and horrific performances.

Kambosos remembers when everything went perfectly. Viewed as a gargantuan underdog against Teofimo Lopez in November of 2021, Kambosos (20-2, 10 KOs) walked into Lopez’s backyard and picked up what many considered was an unlikely victory.

The Aussie native patted himself on the back and left the States with essentially every world title in the lightweight division. Hubris for Kambosos began to set in. He threw on a pair of dark shades whenever he was out in public and often bloviated about his future plans.

Devin Haney, however, ruined whatever momentum he built up, beating him on back-to-back occasions. Pissed off and despondent, Kambosos seriously contemplated retirement. That, of course, was short-lived.

On July 22nd, at the Firelake Arena in Oklahoma, Kambosos will officially look to end his losing streak against Maxi Hughes.

Preparing with full reverence for what Hughes brings to the table, Kambosos is convinced that he’ll ultimately take care of business and move on to bigger and better things.

“There are so many great fights out there,” said Kambosos to Fight Hub TV. “I really like the Gervonta Davis fight.”

Davis, currently, won’t be fighting anyone in the immediate future. After recently violating the terms of his house arrest, Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) is now forced to spend roughly two months behind bars.

Once he’s granted his release, the 28-year-old could look to close out his year on a good note. In the first half of 2023, the Baltimore star violently stopped both Hector Luis Garcia and Ryan Garcia.

His undefeated record and propensity for getting his opponents out of there before the final bell rings, could be bad news for the normally durable Kambosos.

Most in boxing circles will likely pick Davis to issue a gruesome fate to Kambosos. Those premonitions, nevertheless, sound like a familiar story. Heading into his showdown against Lopez, most in the boxing world expected Lopez to hand Kambosos a one-sided beating. But, with the former lightweight kingpin proving people wrong, he’s confident that history can repeat itself.

If, for some reason, Davis sends Kambosos to the showers early, he’ll hold his head high, even if it's covered in blood defeat.

“I think styles-wise, a lot of people are saying ‘he’s too explosive, he’ll knock me out.’ The same thing with Teofimo Lopez. If he puts me to sleep he puts me to sleep. I’m a warrior.”
