George Kambosos and Devin Haney accuse each other of ducking undisputed fight

George Kambosos and Devin Haney have accused each other of avoiding negotiations as talks over an undisputed lightweight clash heat up.

The Australian star is plotting his next challenge after a shock victory over Teofimo Lopez to land all of the American's lightweight world titles in sensational fashion.

Meanwhile Haney maintained his pursuit of an undisputed shot with victory over JoJo Diaz to retain his WBC 'regular' title.

Haney questioned Kambosos over a potential clash and began a social media exchange, tweeting : "Yo George Kambosos we making this fight happen or what?

"I’m agreeing to all your terms whether it is the vaccine or the travel. It's starting to look like some ducking is going on!"

Kambosos quickly responded : "I love how you manipulate and lie to your fans. Talk a big game but show no action! A bit like your fights.

"I'm patiently waiting with all my belts for the offer from your BOSS Eddie Hearn because I got a stadium ready in Australia, but I can see the excuses already."

Haney continued his jibe: "So you want OUR side to put the money up in your backyard? Ok no problem, see you soon and keep those belts safe because they’ll be leaving Australia soon."

Kambosos then fired back over the "ducking" claim: "I’m not here for Twitter fights like most of these cats! I’m here for real fights! TBH you got give respect to myself, Teo [Lopez] and Lomachenko!

"Out of the one Emperor, four kings and Matrix we three stepped up and fought. While the others fought on Twitter. Just stating facts! Now you tell me who ducks."

The exchange continues to heat up a potential clash between the pair with the belt situation needing to be resolved despite WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman stating Kambosos is already the undisputed titlist.

Kambosos continued to show his real talent and take over from Lopez in the division with the American set to instead pursue options at super-lightweight.

He is now confident of staging an Australian stadium fight this year in his first title defence and has included Gervonta Davis and Vasyl Lomachenko on a potential shortlist for an opponent.

Despite Kambosos' plans Matchroom Boxing promoter Hearn has admitted that offers have come in to stage the bout in the Middle East.

“We’ve had an offer from the Middle East for Devin Haney vs. Kambosos,” Hearn said on the DAZN Boxing Show. “This is one we’re edging towards, where we’re receiving a firm offer for.”

"For me it’s the only fight in the division, I know Top Rank is talking about Lomachenko against Kambosos. We need to wrap up this undisputed situation. We need to know who is the real champion. It’s a natural fight. Haney against Kambosos is a brilliant fight.

“We can do it Sunday in Australia; we can do it in the United Arab Emirates. We can do it in America; Devin Haney is ready to go for that fight. He won’t price himself out.”
