Despite odds not being in his favor at +600, Kambosos has a puncher’s chance and boxing expert Teddy Atlas sees improvement on the horizon.
“Kambosos, his thing is timing. Timing can beat speed. He used timing against Teofimo Lopez, who is a big puncher, and he dropped Teofimo because he timed him. He timed him and found he could hit him with the right hand,” Atlas said.
“That tells me something. It tells me he’s cerebral. I already know that Haney is cerebral, but he should be better the second time. Kambosos, a guy that depends on timing, not speed.”
He wasn’t too far away from winning the first fight. It was an even fight, and if he won a couple more of the middle rounds, he could have snatched the victory away from Haney.
He’s not getting much respect for being a power puncher, but as his record suggests, he’s strong enough to send Haney to the canvas. However, we think his best chance is to outwork Haney.
Passion is important in boxing, so Kambosos Jr needs to start well and score a 10-9 round on the judges’ scorecards. He needs to win the first few rounds before Haney finds his groove. If Haney starts well, Kambosos Jr will look for the knockout and it’s unlikely to come.Follow us on Twitter
