Eddie Hearn, promoter for WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney, would love to match his boxer against newly crowned unified champion George Kambosos in a full-division unification.
This past Saturday night at the Hulu Theater at New York's Madison Square Garden, Kambosos shocked the division when he secured a twelve round split decision win over heavily favored Teofimo Lopez to capture the WBO, IBF, WBC Franchise, WBA titles.
Kambosos dropped Lopez in the first round, recovered from a knockdown in the tenth, and close strong in the championship rounds.
Haney has a tough defense in the coming days, as he will defend his belt against former world champion Joseph Diaz on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The unbeaten champion saw action back in May, when he picked up a twelve round decision over another former champion, Jorge Linares. However, Linares was able to rock Haney during the fight and made it a tough outing.
Diaz picked up a decision win over former champion Javier Fortuna in July.
As long as Haney comes out on top this weekend, Hearn wants to explore a big showdown between him and Kambosos.
"The obvious thing is to fight Devin Haney for all the belts. That’s the fight, but Devin has got to beat JoJo [this Saturday]. You just had a situation there where the underdog just won, so Devin has got to be switched on," Hearn said to IFL TV.
“I’d love to work with George and take him to Australia. That’s the dream. They come from Australia and beat Teofimo Lopez to win all the belts. It’s unbelievable."
