Kambosos Jr. vs Hughes fight priview
Kambosos won the WBO, WBA, and IBF lightweight titles after defeating Lopez. By pulling off the huge upset, Kambosos unexpectedly rose to a position of power, which he used to force any would-be rivals to compete for his titles in Australia, where he was from.
Initially, it was intended for Kambosos to compete against former unified champion Vasiliy Lomachenko. That failed because Lomachenko chose to stay in Ukraine and support his nation’s defense against the Russian invasion. The uncontested champion was then to be crowned until Haney intervened, risking his WBC title.
Simply said, Haney was better than Kambosos and ruined his night in front of a large crowd at Melbourne’s Docklands Stadium. Kambosos utilized

Prediction according to CBS
Kambosos looked terrific against Lopez in a fight where he’d beaten Lopez mentally before they ever stepped in the ring. Lopez then fought like a guy who did not respect his opponent’s skills and paid the price. Everything about that fight was Lopez playing into Kambosos’ hands. Haney was not that same situation and Kambosos, for all his skills, does often struggle with fighters who approach bouts in a more tactical way. You have to go back to June 2019 to find a Kambosos win by anything other than a split decision.
