Georges Kambosos Jr., the latest boxer to tease MMA dance, plans to train with Alex Volkanovski
Georges Kambosos Jr beat Teofimo Lopez in a stunning performance last month to claim some of Lopez’s lightweight belts, taking his record to 20-0 in the process. But just because he’s at the top of the boxing game doesn’t mean he intends to slow down a bit. If anything he is doing to improve more.
In a recent interview about Time MMA (via MMA Fighting). And the featured expert also wanted to take some cues from Volks.
“I am a huge fan of the UFC. I love sports, I love combat sports. And me and Alex also have a good relationship. He supported me, I supported him, and I said I would come back with all these belts – obviously, he’s the UFC featherweight king and I’m the lightweight king, and we I will help each other. And how good would that be?
Kambosos revealed that in addition to both men being Australian, they are also Greek, another thing they have in common.
While Kambosos still has a lot of work to do in the world of boxing now that he’s the lightweight king, Kambosos has teased a possibility that could surpass MMA after he’s trained a lot.
“Yes, I believe so,” Kambosos Jr said of training with Volkanovskio. “We’re going to organize that when I get back and we’re going to do some things together, and like I said, let’s be more specific. His hands are already super sharp, but a little more always helps. And he will improve my internal game and clinch game. And who knows, you might see my UFC debut in the near future. He’ll probably be boxing soon. You never know.”
While a number of professional boxers have teased jumping into the Octagon, only James Toney has ever actually done it, losing to Randy Couture in 2010. While Kambosos didn’t say exactly what those plans are. done, he would never say never.
“Maybe down the line, maybe down the line,” said Kambosos Jr. said “We’ll see.”
However, for the foreseeable future, Kambosos will focus on boxing and now that he is the hunted, he will have a lot of work ahead including potential bouts with Devin Haney, Gervonta Davis , Vasiliy Lomachenko and Ryan Garcia.
