George Kambosos Jr. posted a workout clip of him moving and shifting angles at hyper speed on Wednesday in what appears to be preparation for a fight against Vasily Lomachenko on June 5th.
The way that Kambosos is training now, it’s crystal clear that he’ll be taking on the whiz kid Lomachenko in his next fight in June.
Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs) is known for his fast footwork, constantly changing angles of attack and quick hands.
That style is one that Lomachenko has had since his amateur days in Ukraine, working to his benefit to capture two gold medals in the Olympics.
In looking at the workout clip of Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) that he posted yesterday on social media, it seems clear that he’s attempting to mimic the shifty movement of Lomachenko.

IBF/WBA/WBC Franchise/WBO lightweight champion Kambosos Jr and Lomachenko are likely to be meeting next on June 5th at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
The former three-division world champion Lomachenko, 34, is viewed as the one that will get the fight against Kambosos. Boxing fans want Kambosos and his promoter to announce the battle with the #1 ranked WBC contender Loma already, as it’s been dragging on and on.
WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney remains has an outside chance of getting the fight with Kambosos. Devin’s promoter Eddie Hearn revealed this week that DAZN is acting as the intermediary between him and Kambosos’ promoter Lou DiBella for negotiations.
Kambosos needs more time to develop his speed to get ready for Lomachenko because he’s not going to be able to change his game dramatically overnight to be competitive.
This is the first defense for Kambosos, who captured “them beautiful belts” with a 12 round split decision over Teofimo Lopez on November 27th at Madison Square Garden in New York.
