Kambosos Confident of Beating Selby, Eyes Loma-Lopez Winner

George Kambosos Jr. is looking to get himself in position to win all of the titles.

Undefeated with a record of 18-0, Kambosos wants to eventually headline a stadium fight in Melbourne or Sydney, with all of the lightweight belts on the line.

He feels strongly that at the moment he is the best fighter in Australia, but doesn't have the profile of Jeff Horn or Tim Tszyu.

"Of course I’m the best fighter in Australia ... no disrespect," said Kambosos to The Age. "They all know who the top dog is here and I’m going to continue to prove it."


In October, COVID-19 restrictions allowing, Kambosos will fight Lee Selby in Wales in an IBF eliminator.

The winner will be in line to face the eventual victor of the WBA, WBO, WBC, IBF unification between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez, which is being targeted for September.

"What a fight for Australian boxing," Kambosos said. "This is a world title eliminator, a serious fight. When I win this, I’m going to be fighting the winner of Lomachenko-Lopez. We’re going to fight for all the belts. We are very focused on Lee Selby, but we know the magnitude of what’s at stake.

"I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Bob Arum said he would love to make Lomachenko-Kambosos here in Australia. Pacquiao-Horn did massive numbers, so I truly believe we could break records. We have that fight in Melbourne or Sydney, that’s 60,000 [crowd] easy.

"That’s what I truly believe. I can see it, I can taste it. Kambosos-Lomachenko at Marvel Stadium, I have seen the visions. You work so hard and chase these dreams so hard. I can see this fight happening."

Kambosos believes the key for his career so far, was making the decision to travel overseas to further his progression.

"They key is I didn’t stay in Australia," said Kambosos. "I went to the US very early in my career. We reached 10-0 here and started having our camps in America. I can’t even remember the last time I had a camp here.

"That’s the difference – the sparring. I’m getting contenders, former world champions, world champions. The Aussie fighters here are just sparring each other, they all know each other and get comfortable. I’m in the lion’s den over there … it’s do or die."
