In the sport of boxing, there appears to be an increasing trend of exceptional fighters attempting to unify an entire weight class in order to become the undisputed champion.
Canelo Alvarez has been at the forefront of this movement for the past few years and is the undisputed super middleweight champion. Josh Taylor has risen to the top of the junior welterweight division, while on the men’s side of the sport, there appears to be one more clear champion.
However, depending on who you ask, there is a lot of debate about whether George Kambosos Jr. is the true indisputable champion in the lightweight division.
The new statements by the WBC President, who appears to be siding with Kambosos in this debate despite the fact that Devin Haney is the WBC regular champ, have further muddied the waters.
Both Haney and Kambosos’ teams have said that they desire a fight to unify all of the titles. However, given the newest developments, that fight may no longer be necessary. Instead, Kambosos might face a different opponent, perhaps flipping the division on its head.
Let’s look at the lightweight division in boxing, debate who the true champion is, and check at the latest news and betting odds for George Kambosos Jr. vs. Devin Haney.
