According to Daily Mail, former world champion George Kambosos will travel to the United States to take part in an IBO world title fight against England's Maxi Hughes.

The paper indicates that Kambosos vs. Hughes will take place on Saturday, July 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Kambosos became a big player in 2021, when he shocked Teofimo Lopez with a twelve round decision to capture the WBO, WBA and IBF titles at 140-pounds.

A year later, Kambosos was defeated in back to back fights.

He was outboxed over twelve rounds by Devin Haney. Kambosos exercised an immediate rematch clause but was beaten worse in the second encounter.

The Australian star is now focused on getting his career back on track in a big way.

He wants to punish and stop Hughes - with the goal of positioning himself for an IBF world title fight in the near future.

"I will stop him,' Kambosos told News Corp. 'I'm not just going to beat him, I will knock him out or seriously put a beating on this guy. He is a crafty veteran, so I won't take him lightly. It's a huge opportunity for him, too, so I know how he will look at it, but I'm considering victory and nothing else.

"I'm not even worried about another loss. I am levels above Maxi Hughes. There is nothing he can do that I didn't see against Devin Haney, let alone the 22 fights I've had in my career. I will win the fight and Ferocious will be back.

"When I win this fight, I'm back in line for the IBF world title,' said Kambosos. I'm a big-name fighter and I still deserve the biggest fighters."
