But after Haney’s triumph, his father grew to become embroiled in a heated altercation with Jim Kambosos, the daddy of George, forcing promoter Lou DiBella to intervene.
According to experiences, Haney yelled at Kambosos’ camp within the ring: “Be respectful. Be respectful.”
Bill had solely been granted a visa to enter the nation 24 hours earlier due to a 1992 drug conviction.
Although there was unhealthy blood between their mother and father, Haney and Kambosos had nothing however respect for each other after the bout.
The 28-year-old’s crew handed their belts over after the choice was confirmed, with Haney showering his Australian rival with reward.
“This is a dream come true. I knew this was a big moment,” Haney mentioned after the triumph.
“It would have hurt me to win this without my dad so I‘m glad he was here in my corner.
“I was comfortable. I was sticking to the game plan to hit and not get hit.
“I fought a smart fight.
“I handicapped him of his best things. He wanted to land the overhand right and he couldn‘t hit with me with his left hook either.”
“If the next fight happens, I will be back.”
Kambosos, who has a rematch clause with a possible sequel to happen on Australian shores, vowed to avenge his loss later this yr.
“He didn‘t want to come to fight too much, I have to change a few things and I will get him back later this year,” he mentioned.
“It‘s amazing for the sport. I wanted to take the biggest test and he gets my full respect.
“At the end of the day, not many wanted to fight him, but I fought him.
“I landed a few shots, but he had a smart game plan and did what he had to do to win.
“He got the decision and respect to him.”
