By Adam Baskin: George Kambosos Jr. says it’s going to be “adios” for him if he loses his rematch with Devin Haney on October 16th.

It’s a bit of a surprise that the former unified lightweight champion Kambosos Jr (20-1, 10 KOs) would retire after a second defeat against undisputed champ Haney (28-0, 15 KOs), but he’s set for life, having made millions from his first fight against the American.

With the addition of the millions Kambosos will make for his rematch with Haney, it makes sense for him to walk away from the sport should he lose the rematch.

The money that Kambosos would make after a second defeat against Haney wouldn’t compare to what he got for his two fights. That would be a bitter pill for Kambosos to swallow, and it’s understandable why he might choose the retirement route if he comes up empty.

“Rod Laver is going to be beautiful. Marvel was amazing. I always wanted to fight in a stadium, but this is more special when I come back and ‘the new’ and hear that role in that stadium in such a coliseum,” said George Kambosos Jr to Fight Hub TV.

“It’s a very tight-knit arena where you can hear a pin drop,” Kambosos continued. I was very fortunate to watch tennis here. Just seeing the crowd there and how loud it was. It’s going to be amazing when it’s sold out.

“This will sell out. Kambosos is still the biggest name in Australian boxing and still a massive name in world boxing. I look forward to showing who I am on October 16th. It’s better for me. I’ve always been like that.

“No plan-B, do-or-die. Like I said, if I’m not victorious, adios ‘Ferocious’ Kambosos. But I’m so blessed to be in this position because I’m one victory away from being on the top again and having all the belts. I’d be the undisputed champion again.

“It’s a great moment for my career. This is what it’s all about. It’s a beautiful thing and where I’ve been my whole career. I love that underdog mentality. I lost that in my last fight. I didn’t have that.

“To be back in the trenches, to be in the dark. I’m left alone training. I can train in peace. I’ve been able to get rid of a lot of baggage around me,” said Kambosos Jr.
