Kambosos Jr put this down to deception. When asked Kambosos Jr responded with: "Art of war baby, deception let them believe this was done, "Everything is for a cause. Everything is for a process. Trust me. Maybe I did it on purpose.
"I took a piss, simple and easy. I chilled out, I was about to have a Greek coffee. I thought nah let me go make the weight then I'm going to have my Greek coffee.
"It changes nothing, it changes his mindset now."

Former WBC super welterweight champion Sergio Mora couldn't believe what he was seeing: "Biggest fight of Kambosos career & he misses the weight!! Only missing by .36 of a pound means he’s already bone dry & struggling. This will have a big impact on confidence tomorrow."
