The two fighters held their first press conference on Sunday evening, and they each made their intentions perfectly clear, before then being involved in a long and heated face-off, with plenty more verbals exchanged.
Kambosos said: "I’ve had to go through every bit of adversity, I’ve had to earn my belts, earned them the hardest way, not like this guy. I took the best out. He’s the guy with that half a piece that he parades around, so that’s what I want, that’s what I will take on Sunday, that’s the reason he’s here.
“I made this happen, I chose the biggest fights possible, I took out Teofimo Lopez. Everyone knew that I was prepared to fight Lomachenko, that was done, he couldn’t make it because of his war. No problem, Devin. Want to step up? Step up. And ok he did, but he was forced into this.
“I could’ve fought anyone, I could’ve fought the garbage man outside if I wanted to but I chose you, you’re not my mandatory. I picked you.”
Haney said: "This is the same George that I always see. He’s putting on an act, a persona. When is the act going to stop? We can see right through it. Just be you, that’s all you got to do is just be you.
“Why didn’t he bring the belts to the press conference? What was the point of even coming if you don’t bring the belts? Didn’t the government put the money up for the belts? And all the media come out because this is an undisputed fight between two champions. Why didn’t you bring the belts?"
