Australia’s George Kambosos will be hoping to turn the tables when he meets Devin Haney at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Sunday, October 16 (October 15 in the US).
The American claimed a comfortable points victory when the pair met at Marvel Stadium back in June, seeing Haney come away with all four major belts in the lightweight division.
Despite the victory, a rematch clause in Kambosos’ favour means Haney has to head back to Australia and do it all again.
In a treat for local fight fans, organisers are putting together a card stacked with Australian and international talent.
A second world title fight will feature on the card, with Melbourne-based IBF super-bantamweight champion Cherneka Johnson (14-1) set to take on former two-time world belt-holder Susie Ramadan (28-3).
Also in action, the always-exciting Moloney brothers, who both scored big wins at Marvel Stadium back in June.
Jason (24-2) will be stepping out in a WBC bantamweight title eliminator against Thailand’s Nawaphon Kaikanha (56-1-1).
While his brother Andrew (24-2, 1 NC) is taking on Norbelto Jimenez (31-9) of the Dominican Republic.
Also confirmed to fight on the card is Kiwi David Nyika (4-0), however his opponent is yet to be announced.
Undefeated New Zealand heavyweight Hemi Ahio (19-0) will feature against tough Australian Faiga “Django” Opelu (14-3-1) in a fireworks-guaranteed match up.
Rising American super-welterweight and stablemate of Haney, Amari Jones (7-0), is also slated to appear, although no opponent has been confirmed.
