Kambosos chewing gum, looking nervous during final press conference for Haney fight

By Sean Jones: A nervous-looking George Kambosos Jr chewed gum nonstop at a rapid pace during today’s press conference with undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney. During the face-off, Kambosos’ gum-chewing went into warp drive, showing how scared he was.

Kambosos didn’t look or sound convincing today, and his gum chewing was that of a man that appeared to need this to mask his fear. He just looked like a broken fighter, like a soldier that had seen & experienced too much in a war.

Haney won every round last summer when he schooled Kambosos, making it look easy. Kambosos is clearly still haunted by that loss.

George might have been better off taking a confidence booster in between to help him return to his normal self because he looked mentally shattered today and not the same guy.

The way Kambosos looks, he will get knocked out by Haney when the two meet at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.

It seems obvious from watching Kambosos’ body language and behavior during the press conference that he doesn’t believe he can win on Saturday. He looks like a beaten man, getting ready to pick up a final paycheck before he heads into retirement.

Kambosos had his 15 minutes of fame after getting lucky against Teofimo Lopez, and he’s now returned to being the fringe contender that he’d been before that fight.

Supposedly, Kambosos is coming into the rematch with a new game plan, one that involves him being more aggressive. I don’t think it matters what he tries to do. Haney is just so much better than him that it’s going to be the same outcome as last time.

“He has a fantastic jab, but we’ve done put in the work to evade not only his jab but what Devin tries to bring. It doesn’t matter,” said George Kambosos Jr during today’s final press conference for his title fight against undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney on Saturday.

“Nothing will break my focus. I’m not interested in anything else. I’m interested in Sunday and what I do then,” said Kambosos.

Kambosos’ spirit looks like it’s been broken by Haney from his one-sided beat down last June, and four months that have elapsed since then haven’t helped the little emperor’s shattered self-conference.

Haney relieved the boastful Kambosos of his three belts last June and took swiped his confidence along with it.

“He has a great jab, but that’s why boxing is the sweet science,” said Kambosos. “It’s the unknown. That’s why I love this sport so much. That and what I’m about to bring. I don’t know what he’s about to bring. He might bring the Arturo Gatti type of style, supposedly.”

The question is, will Kambosos still retire when he loses? He’d talked about hanging up his gloves, but his promoter Lou DiBella said this week that he doesn’t believe he will. I’m not so sure about that. If Haney knocks Kambosos out, it’s probable that he’ll retire.

“He has the pound-for-pound list he wants to get in. We might have an Arturo Gatti right there,” said Kambosos.
