Arum: No one knows Haney in Australia, Kambosos-Lomachenko a much bigger fight

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, who promotes Vasiliy Lomachenko, strongly believes that his boxer is the most likely choice for WBO, WBC Franchise, WBA, IBF lightweight champion George Kambosos.

Lomachenko, the former three-division world champion, lost four belts to Teofimo Lopez in 2020, in great sadness.

And then last year, Lopez himself suffered a painful defeat as he was beaten 12 rounds by the Kambosos to claim the crown of unity.

Lomachenko wasn’t the only boxer in the race.

Eddie Hearn, cheerleader for WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney, is working hard to secure the match against the Kambosos.

Kambosos was planning to play on a May day – and he died setting up the next match on Australian soil.

Both Arum and Hearn are in talks with Kambosos promoter Lou DiBella and manager Peter Kahn.

Arum explains that his company has deep connections in Australia – and Lomachenko is a much bigger name in the country. He feels Haney is still a mystery.

If Arum secures the fight, then Kambosos-Lomachenko will join ESPN. Hearn, if he comes out on top, will bring a Kambosos-Haney fight to the DAZN streaming platform.

“We’re talking to Lou and Peter and we’re optimistic because we have really good relationships inside Australia. COVID is getting in the way, but I think it’s going to be fine and ESPN is ready to take action to finish that fight,” Arum told

“Truth be told, no one knows who Devin Haney is in Australia. Really, he hasn’t had any contact yet. Everyone who follows boxing around the world, including Australia, knows Lomachenko. So Lomachenko will be a much bigger game in Australia than Devin Haney. ”–163541 Arum: No one knows Haney in Australia, Kambosos-Lomachenko a much bigger fight
