Kambosos, who lost his undisputed lightweight crown to Haney in a closely contested battle, is intimately familiar with the American fighter's style and tactics. Despite facing defeat, Kambosos holds a deep respect for Haney, emphasizing the positive impression Haney left during their encounters in Australia.

Meanwhile, Haney, boasting an undefeated record of 31 wins and 15 knockouts, prepares to defend his WBC junior welterweight world title against Ryan Garcia this Saturday, April 20, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Kambosos, having experienced the intensity of facing Haney in the ring, offers insights into the upcoming matchup between Haney and Garcia.

Reflecting on Garcia's approach in the lead-up to the fight, Kambosos expresses concern about the impact of Garcia's antics on the bout's competitiveness. Garcia's engagement with social media and his followers, coupled with his eccentric behavior, has raised eyebrows, with Kambosos suggesting that it may detract from the fight's quality.

Despite his affinity for Garcia, Kambosos predicts a decisive victory for Haney, emphasizing Haney's professionalism and the strength of his training team, led by his father, Bill Haney. Drawing from his own experiences, Kambosos underscores the importance of remaining focused when facing a fighter of Haney's caliber.

In contrast, Kambosos observes that Garcia appears to be grappling with distractions and inconsistencies, potentially undermining his readiness for the career-defining bout against Haney.
