Moment George Kambosos Jr is slammed by Devin Haney’s father
Moment George Kambosos Jr enters Devin Haney’s locker room to congratulate him on the win – but is criticized by American’s father who claims Aussie had just argued with HIS father
- Bill Haney Wasn’t Happy With George Kambosos Jr Pre-Bout Trash Talk
- He called his son Devin Haney a ‘rat’ for passing on information about Teófimo Lopez
- In a FightHype.com clip, Haney snr asked ‘Where did you get that rat shit?
- Haney had the last laugh and won by unanimous points decision last Sunday
A vision has arisen of George Kambosos Jr entering Devin Haney’s locker room last Sunday to congratulate him on taking his belt off—and it wasn’t long before the American’s father gave him a service.
Bill Haney was not happy with the pre-match trash can, in which Kambosos revealed that the undisputed lightweight champion sent him a series of text messages leading up to his world title fight against Teófimo Lopez last November.
In an apparent effort to mentally rattle Haney, Kambosos, 28, labeled the American fighter a “rat” for passing on valuable information about Lopez.
It didn’t have the desired effect, with Haney winning by unanimous points decision at Marvel Stadium last Sunday.
In the clip, an excited Haney snr interrupted the friendly conversation between the two boxers.
“Where did you get that rat s**t?” he asked. “Who told you to say that?”

Kambosos ignores the question, telling the American fighter that his “prick surprises him,” while Haney says his rival “had better hands than I thought.”
Bill Haney—who got into a fight with Kambosos’ father Jim in the run-up to the fight—also asked, “Where’s your dad? Why didn’t he come with you?’
Kambosos replies that his father would come to see Bill.
“Tell him to stay with you,” Haney senior said. ‘When you came, as a man, he stayed there, and I saw you arguing. Stay together. Stay together.’
“My father is my most important man,” Kambosos replied.
A rematch is likely in October or November, with Melbourne once again the expected venue thanks to a clause with the Victorian government.
Sports Minister Martin Pakula said Melbourne was the logical destination given its status as ‘one of the world’s greatest sports cities’, before pointing out that ‘our sports fans come to events like nowhere else in the country’.
NSW sports chiefs would be stunned. Sunday’s fight took place in Melbourne as Kambosos Jr hails from the Harbor City.
But the lack of a roof at Sydney Olympic Park or Sydney Football Stadium played into Melbourne’s hands – and will likely open the door once again for an encore Marvel Stadium fight.
After the match, Kambosos Jr says he knows how to beat Haney in their rematch later this year.

Haney, 23, became undisputed lightweight champion with a unanimous decision win after 12 rounds
The 28-year-old suffered the first loss in his 21-fight career when Haney, 23, became the youngest undisputed champion in the four-belt era with a dominant win.
Sharp and spiteful from the opening bell, Haney earned two scores of 116-112 and one of 118-110 from the judges as he delivered a masterful performance to etch his name in the history books.
“We had the game plan, which unfortunately we couldn’t execute the way we wanted,” Kambosos said.
“He was just fighting his game with that jab. He (Haney) just threw that jab away and he’s been holding a lot.
“The ref also let go of a few things that should have pulled something up, but it is what it is. I’m going back to the drawing board with my team.
“Congratulations to Devin Haney and the team. They came all the way here, like I did with Lopez, and they won. But I’ll be back.’
