Kambosos vs Hughes: preview
What a difference a year has made for George Kambosos Jr. Not so long ago the Aussie was the proud owner of the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight belts, but he now finds himself building anew with the hope of challenging for titles again before the year's end. But he's not picked out an easy task. Not only is Maxi Hughes a southpaw, but he's fighting the biggest bout of his career off a seven-match streak.
Kambosos Jr's fall has been dramatic after suffering the first two defeats of his career. They both came at the hands of the now undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney, but with The Dream flirting with a move up to junior welterweight, Kambosos Jr knows that he has to be in a position to pounce should those titles hit the market again.
The 30-year-old believes that a bounceback victory over Hughes could fast-track him back towards the summit of the division, and though Kambosos Jr is undoubtedly the favourite, his opponent has been waiting 13 years for a shot like this. The 33-year-old beat Kid Galahad in his most recent outing, so the profile of the man in the opposite corner won't faze him one bit.
Kambosos Jr, however, has the edge in terms of height, reach, age and power, with 50% of his victories coming by way of knockout, compared to 19% for Hughes. Here's how to watch a Kambosos Jr vs Hughes live stream, no matter where you are in the world.
