Speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Thursday, Kambosos said he is determined not to be a one-hit wonder against Haney.

“The scary thing for Haney is I have gotten better,” the Greek Australian boxer said. “I have more speed, more power, more conditioning, better footwork… I have gone to a new level.”

Kambosos added that his body is also in “prime condition” and he has “gotten hungrier” and “more obsessed.”

“I went overseas to fight Lopez and came back with these beautiful belts. I am the top dog now and when I beat Haney, I will put the full stop on this and be the undisputed champion,” Kambosos concluded.
