George Kambosos Jr’s future uncertain after losing world-title bout against Lomachenko


George Kambosos Jr’s future is up in the air after the Greek Australian suffered a technical knockout loss to Ukrainian Vasiliy Lomachenko in their IBF lightweight world title showdown in Perth, Western Australia on Sunday.

Despite a promising start, Kambosos was no match for Lomachenko and fell short via TKO after a series of brutal body shots in the 11th round.

Kambosos managed to get back to his feet momentarily, but a second onslaught from the Ukrainian was enough for the referee to wave it off and his corner to throw the towel in and protect their fighter.

“He is a true champion and he deserves that belt. I gave it my all, that’s all I can do… that’s the type of fighter I am. I’m a warrior, I’m still standing… I ain’t dead,” Kambosos said after the match.

The devastating nature of the defeat raises questions about what the future holds for the 30-year-old Kambosos.

Kambosos has now lost three of his past four fights, including two-straight defeats at the hands of Devin Haney in 2022, placing his boxing career at a crossroad.
