Aussie fighter George Kambosos Jr, 19-0 (10KOs) will have the biggest opportunity for an Australian fighter in nearly twenty years, when he takes on Teofimo Lopez 16-0 (12KOs) for the WBC (Franchise), WBA(Super), IBF, WBO and Ring Magazine Lightweights World Titles on June 19th (20th Australian time) in Miami, USA.
The event will be held at Loan Depot Park and will be broadcast on Triller for a price of 49.95 in the USA.

Despite Kambosos Jr obtaining the biggest opportunity for an Aussie fighter since Glen Kelly fought Roy Jones Jr for Jones’ Undisputed Light-Heavyweight World Titles (WBC, WBA IBF, three belts for undisputed at the time) plus Jones’ minor titles of IBO, IBA, and WBF, in 2002, Kambosos Jr has received little to no attention from the Australian media for the fight.
Australian Broadcaster, Mainevent a division of Foxtel TV will be showing the event on Channel 521, Sunday June 20 from 11am, AEST. The fight is only $29.95. Half of what you’ll pay for the Paul Gallen v Justis Huni fight for $59.95. (That’s this Wednesday for that fight)
Its quite puzzling how the Australian media is yet to jump all over this fight with promotion or interviews, but the international media has shown more interest than the Australian media. To date (it’s Friday June 11 as I write this) only a few articles and two interviews with George exists for this fight.
However, despite this Kambosos Jr had remained focus on his once in a lifetime opportunity, with training for the fight of his life. Kambosos Jr has been in Miami training for the past near three months for what some are calling the biggest title fight to hit Miami since Liston v Ali (1).
George’s chances of victory are on the slight side as many experts are largely in favour of Lopez due to his caliber of fights and his high knockout percentage.

Personally, if the best Lopez doesn’t turn up on the night, Kambosos Jr could have the biggest upset on his hands since Pacquaio v Horn.
