Ryan Garcia calls out George Kambosos Jr but Eddie Hearn eyes undisputed fight with Devin Haney in Vegas or Sydney11/28/2021
RYAN GARCIA called out George Kambosos Jr – but Eddie Hearn wants an undisputed fight with Devin Haney in Las Vegas or Sydney.
Kambosos scored a heroic upset over Teofimo Lopez in New York to win the unified WBA, IBF, WBO and WBC 'Franchise' belt.
The stunning win drew praise from his lightweight rivals, who all now fancy a crack at the Australian's belts.
Garcia, 22, tweeted: "My return fight I’ll fight Kambosos.
"Massive respect to Kambosos for that performance honestly you deserve it and all love go celebrate."
Haney, 23, posted: "Congrats @georgekambosos well deserved victory you worked hard for it! Let’s make it happen for all the belts ! #RealUndisputed."
Garcia has not fought since beating Britain's Luke Campbell, 34, in seven rounds at the start of the year.
He was due to face JoJo Diaz, 29, but was forced to withdraw with a hand injury.

Instead, Diaz will now challenge for Haney's WBC title on December 5 in Las Vegas.
Haney's Promoter Hearn wants to put together an undisputed title decider between Kambosos, 28, if the American retains his title against Diaz.
Hearn told IFL TV: "The obvious thing is to fight Devin Haney for all the belts. That’s the fight, but Devin has got to beat Jojo next week.
"You just had a situation there where the underdog just won, so Devin has got to be switched on.
“I’d love to work with George and take him to Australia. That’s the dream. They come from Australia and beat Teofimo Lopez to win all the belts.
