American is dreaming big

Haney travels to Australia for a huge fight in his career as the pre-match betting favourite, but The Dream knows this is a huge test, and he could lose everything if he isn’t at his best. Devon has worked tirelessly to get to where he is today, ranked as the number four lightweight in the world, a list topped by Gervonta Davis.

This weekend’s opponent is currently ranked number two at the weight, meaning this is an ideal opportunity for Haney to climb the ladder. If he can claim victory Down Under, silencing the home crowd, Devon would rise through the ranks, closing the distance between himself and Tank Davis.

Haney knows victory in this bout – coupled with an impressive performance – could help set up the bout he wants; a meeting with Davis, and that could come later this year. If Devon is to have any chance of that all-American match-up before the end of 2022, he must put on a show here.

Haney has passed each of the previous 27 tests put to him, but he’s a fighter that prefers to use his boxing skills to break down opponents and impress the scoring judges. That can be seen in his last four results, with each bout going the 12-round distance and testing the judges sat at ringside.

Devon last stopped an opponent back in the summer of 2019 when getting rid of the little known Zaur Abdullaey inside four rounds at Madison Square Garden. We choose to overlook that result as it came through injury and the bout went to the scorecards early.

Since that win over Abdullaey, we have seen Haney out-point Alfredo Santiago and Yuriorkis Gamboa by comfortable margins before seeing off Jorge Linares – a real fans’ favourite – and Joseph Diaz last time out. Those wins were a little closer than the two before, with margins ranging from two rounds through to six rounds

Haney will make his point

When previewing this fight, we can’t help but notice that trend of Haney winning bouts on points. He has shown us already that he holds serious power and carries the ability to stop opponents throughout a contest, but he much prefers to use his boxing.

With each of Haney’s last four fights travelling the 12-round championship distance, we aim to stick with that run and go for another win on points. There will be no shortage of followers happy to follow the form and take Haney to win on points.

The stats give us a few bets to consider, and this is often the case when betting on boxing; there is a market designed to suit every style of bettor and every budget. Below you will find two bets available that tie into the form of Haney.

Kambosos enjoys support from the crowd

This is the biggest and most important fight of Kambosos career, and it comes in Melbourne with thousands of Australians turning out in support of their fighter. The crowd will be there cheering on a home win for George, and that could make all the difference when this one gets interesting.

Kambosos heads into this contest with a professional boxing record detailing 20 wins from as many bouts, with half of those victories coming by way of knockout. He is ranked number one in Australia and the second best lightweight in the world behind Tank.

Victory over Haney in Melbourne this weekend would prove to be the final piece of the puzzle for Kambosos, and the win would ensure he gets a crack at Davis later this year. Tank vs Kambosos would be a huge contest, one that would bring followers of the sport out in huge numbers.

When looking through the recent stats of Kambosos, we see he brings form that is similar to his opponent, with four of his last five wins on points. That encourages us to look at another long fight and the potential of this one challenging the judges to make a decision.

George may be on a similar run of results as his opponent, but he has been much less impressive in getting the victory. Each of his last three points wins have come via a split decision, with those fights going right down to the wire. Could his luck be about to run out?
