Kambosos, Sydney’s own, has been on a steady climb through the lightweight ladder since 2013. He shot to the top of the IBF rankings by outmaneuvering Lee Selby in 2020. The following year, he pulled off a stunner, edging Teofimo Lopez by a whisker to grab the unified champion title, shocking the boxing world. His 2022 face-off with Haney for the top spot magnetized over 41,000 fans to Marvel Stadium, though he couldn’t clinch the win. After a rematch defeat, Kambosos dusted himself off in July 2023, narrowly defeating Maxi Hughes to line up another shot at the championship glory.

Lomachenko, with a chest full of medals including two Olympic golds, snagged the featherweight title in just his third pro bout and raced to triple-division glory faster than most. Despite being on the smaller side for a lightweight, “Loma” knocked over big names like Jorge Linares, Jose Pedraza, and Luke Campbell, bagging three belts along the way. A bump in the road came in 2020 with a points defeat to Teofimo Lopez in Vegas, but he bounced back with a trio of victories. Amidst his comeback, he took a detour to join a defense battalion back home amidst the turmoil in Ukraine. Last spring, he nearly clinched the undisputed lightweight title but fell short in a nail-biter against the unbeaten Devin Haney.

Vasiliy Lomachenko:

“Thrilled to bits about making a comeback and duking it out down there. This tussle’s the golden ticket for snagging a world champ belt again. Plus, I’ve been itching to check out Australia, so this is killing two birds with one stone.”

“Getting that world champ title back is my main gig right now. After that’s in the bag, I’ll eye the undisputed crown.”

” From where I stand, I didn’t take the L in the Haney fight. And as for Haney tangling with Kambosos, well, Kambosos swung twice and missed both times.”

“Back home, Oleksandr Usyk’s holding down the fort as champ. Come May 12, we could be toasting to a duo of champs in our neck of the woods.”

“Props to George Kambosos for never throwing in the towel mid-fight. This clash is gonna be a feast for the eyes, what with our chalk-and-cheese styles.”

George Kambosos Jr.:

“Backing down just ain’t in my playbook. I’m all about squaring up with the cream of the crop. Lomachenko’s nothing short of a legend, and we’ve had our eye on him for ages. Mad respect for the man. Getting this fight on the books is mind-blowing. I’m pumped, ready to roll, and the countdown’s on.”

“This showdown’s a game-changer for my career, my shot at redemption. Sure, I’ve tasted both victory and defeat, but this right here is about carving out a legacy. It’s more than just a fight; it’s about two gladiators putting it all on the line for glory. I’m convinced it’s my fate.”

“Alright, I took a hit from Devin Haney, but when Lopez was in your court, Lomachenko, you dropped the ball. I, on the other hand, seized my moment.”

“Lomachenko hit the nail on the head – it’s all about the matchup. Brace yourselves for a barn burner. No retreating, just two fighters going toe-to-toe.”
