$2 million boxing fight between George Kambosos Jr and Liam Wilson in the works


Plans for Greek Australian boxer George Kambosos Jr and Liam Wilson to compete in a $2 million super fight are underway.

The super fight will be one of the biggest since the Anthony Mundine and Danny Green blockbuster in 2006.

Kambosos Jr will be chasing a victory after losing his world titles against Devin Haney in 2022.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Wilson’s manager, Steve Scanlan, said: “We absolutely want George Kambosos” for the super fight.

“I think Liam showed he deserves a crack at George and this week, I will reach out to the Kambosos camp and we’ll begin discussions to put together a possible title bout,” Scanlan added.

“George is a Spartan warrior and Liam loves to entertain when he fights. It’s a fight the Australian public deserves to see.

“If Liam wins, it would really propel him into the mainstream. But the ball will be in George’s court if he wants to get a deal done with us.”

Kambosos Jr recently turned down the opportunity to fight American sensation Shakur Stevenson (19-0) and is weighing up a number of options for the right comeback, according to The Daily Telegraph.
