Eddie Hearn is eager to make an undisputed fight at 135lbs between WBC champion Devin Haney and WBA, WBO and IBF champion George Kambosos Jr.

Kambosos Jr. shocked the world on Saturday night after beating Teofimo Lopez via a split decision in New York. 

This was the second time the Australian has appeared on a Matchroom card and Hearn is eager to work with 28-year-old for a third fight and deliver the homecoming he craves.

"The obvious thing is to fight Devin Haney for all the belts. That’s the fight, but Devin has got to beat Jojo [Diaz Jr] next week," Hearn told IFL TV

"You just had a situation there where the underdog [Kambosos] just won, so Devin has got to be switched on.

“I’d love to work with George [Kambosos] and take him [Haney] to Australia. That’s the dream. They come from Australia and beat Teofimo Lopez to win all the belts. It’s unbelievable."

If a fight in Australia cannot be made, Hearn is happy to bring a potential Kambosos Jr. vs. Haney fight to Las Vegas.

"Listen, the kid [Kambosos] is going to make a fortune. He’s cracked it, and good luck to him, but hopefully, it’s the Devin Haney fight.

"Hopefully, he can win the final belt, and he believes he can win that. We’ll do it in Vegas, or we’ll do it in Sydney [Australia], it doesn’t matter."

'The Dream' is back in action next weekend against mandatory challenger Joseph 'JoJo' Diaz Jr. in a fight which is being broadcast exclusively live on DAZN.
