Dela Torre had problems obtaining a visa and subsequently withdrew from the fight. Unable to find an opponent, the date was scrapped.

George Kambosos 

American Devin Haney kept his unbeaten record intact on Sunday by battering Australian George Kambosos in a rematch to remain undisputed lightweight world champion.

The highly-rated 23-year-old successfully defended his WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO belts at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena in a unanimous points decision with one judge scoring the bout 119-109 in his favour, with the other two both having it 118-110.

Haney now looks set for a fight next with two-time Olympic champion Vasiliy Lomachenko.

“I went in with the jab but also wanted to show other tools in my arsenal,” said San Francisco-born Haney after pummeling Kambosos, who did well to still be there after 12 rounds.

“When I first came out I couldn’t interact but I caught up with his timing and I started picking my shots.

“He’s a player, I take my hat off to George Kambosos,” he added.

Haney is only the eighth boxer to hold all four belts from the major sanctioning bodies — WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO — at the same time.

He beat Kambosos unanimously in June to achieve the feat and become the first undisputed lightweight champion in modern boxing history, since Pernell Whitaker in 1990, and the first in the four-belt era, which began in 2004

George Kambosos shocked the world in 2021 when he defeated Teofimo Lopez Jr in New York to become world champion at 135lbs, but he couldn’t repeat such a win when facing Devin Haney back in June.

The Australian fighter had home advantage against the slick American, but he was dominated from the outset. He now has the chance to put it right.
