Top pros have reacted following Devin Haney’s one-sided victory over George Kambosos to become the undisputed lightweight king of boxing.

Haney and Kambosos collided on June 4 inside Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. Kambosos had the home field advantage but it didn’t matter.

Haney frustrated Kambosos throughout the night, peppering him with the jab and clinching at the right times before his opponent could gain some steam. After 12 rounds of action, the winner was clear although two of the score totals were far closer than they should’ve been.

Devin Haney won the fight via unanimous decision with scores of 118-110, 116-112, and 116-112.
