by Sean Jones: Negotiations have stalled between the undisputed lightweight champion George Camposos Jr and Eddie Hearn’s WBC belt holder Devin Haney. According to SI, Haney (27-0, 15 KOs) isn’t happy with the undisputed Kambosos Battle financial package.
Haney, 23, is a terrible choice for Camposus because he has a boring fighting style, and he won’t attract much attention. Hearn thought he had found the gold when he signed with Haney two years ago; You could say he found the equivalent Stupids gone.“
Haney wouldn’t be the next Floyd Mayweather Jr, and he doesn’t attract much attention to his fights in the US, maybe if Haney lived in the UK, he’d be famous, but not in the US
Fighters that are popular tend to be more fun and punchier. Floyd Mayweather Jr. was one of the rare examples in American boxing history where a non-boxer became a superstar.
Most of the time, light hitters don’t turn out to be stars in the US, which is why you should feel sorry for Hearn because some think he’s overpaying Haney.
Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix reported the news about the Kambosos-Haney fight being halted. He says negotiations are going well between Vasily Lomachenko, the highest ranker, and Camposus, so this is a possibility for Australia to take the next fight.
Ryan Garcia, prospect of Camposos
Also, Ryan Garcia is one of Kambosos’ options. This will be a two-way deal as King Ry and Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) have temporary fights in the first half of 2022 and then meet in the second half.
Shawn Jones loves the idea of Camposos fighting Ryan Garcia. It will be a 50/50 match that will attract a lot of interest from boxing fans.
In contrast, if Kambosos faces Lomachenko, he will have very little chance of beating the two-time Olympic gold medalist from Ukraine. And Lomachenko is too talented for Kamposos to defeat him.
If Kambosos agree to this deal, he will make a voluntary defense against a competitor likely to be at the bottom of the standings before facing Ryan later this year. It is unclear who will face Ryan (21-0, 18 KOs).
Tevin Farmer recently mentioned that he was in Ryan’s next fight, but is unlikely to take the fight as he has plenty of experience with the 23-year-old Golden Boy fighter.
Interestingly, Hearn hinted at a problem in conversations with Kambosos this week when he revealed that he told Haney not to value himself during negotiations because if he wins this fight, he’ll beovernight star. “
Talks of George Camposos Jr. and Devin Haney have reportedly been halted due to the financial statements. Camposos Jr.’s side are allegedly still in talks to battle Vasyl Lomachenko, though they are also now discussing a potential deal to face Ryan Garcia after both go through temporary bouts.[Accordingto[وفق[Accordingto
Camposos’ negotiations against Hani have stopped
“Talks for a lightweight fight between Devin Haney and George Camposos have stalled,” Mannix told SI. The officials involved struggled to come up with a financial package that would satisfy Hani.
“While Team Kambosos… continue to discuss a deal with Top Rank to take on Vasyl Lomachenko – negotiations on the two-fight package there have been relatively smooth – there are some Building momentum towards a deal with Ryan Garcia.
Representatives for Kambosos and Garcia discussed the framework for a two-fight deal that would see Kambosos and Garcia fight provisional battles in the first half of 2022 — Garcia is ready to return in April while Kambosos prefers to fight in June — with two colliding in the second half of the year, Mannix said. general”.
If the idea is for Kambosos to try to extend his time as a four-belts lightweight champ for as long as humanly possible, taking a two-way deal with Golden Boy Promotions to take on Ryan Garcia is the way to go.
