Kambosos vs Haney Purse

In a March interview, Haney revealed that he accepted less money to make sure he got a title unification bout against Kambosos. Haney is set to make a guaranteed purse of $2.8 million, while Kambosos is guaranteed $10 million for the fight. Kambosos will also get a much bigger share of the PPV sales, at 70% compared to Haney’s 30%.

Devin Haney vs. George Kambosos Odds & Betting Info

All boxing odds, lines and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Moneyline (Two-way)

George Kambosos Jr.: +134
Devin Haney: -166

Method of Victory:

Kambosos by KO/TKO: +550
Kambosos by Points: +240
Haney by KO/TKO: +550
Haney by Points: +100
Draw: +1600

While Kambosos holds more belts, it’s the younger Haney that comes in as a slight favorite here.

Kambosos is no stranger to the underdog role, of course, after upsetting Teofimo Lopez as a +590 underdog in November. With each of his last three wins coming by split decision, however, it’s not hard to see why Haney is the favorite. This is the first time since 2018 that Haney has been favored by less than -800 heading into a fight, and it’s exciting to finally see him getting a tougher test.

Haney vs. Kambosos Prediction

It’s those Kambosos split decisions that really catch my eye here. A close upset over Lopez is nothing to scoff at, but ideally, you’d like to see more decisive victories over the likes of Mickey Bey and Lee Selby. Haney’s been going the distance a ton lately as well, winning four straight decisions, but those were all unanimous decision wins. It’s Haney’s most recent win that should impress you most too, as Joseph Diaz is no pushover.

We know Kambosos can keep things close, but I don’t expect the scorecards to go his way in this one.

Bet Haney to win by points/decision (+100)
