George fires in farewell victory

George Kambosos

A fight on the Danny Green undercard in Melbourne in August is the reward for George ‘Ferocious’ Kambosos after scoring another impressive win on Wednesday night.

The 22-year-old was dominant from the opening bell in the second defence of his WBA PABA Lightweight title against Tanzanian Issa Nampepeche at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre.

Nampepeche failed to come back out at the end of the fourth round after Kambosos, ranked No.13 in the WBA rankings, had aggressively controlled the fight from the outset.

The win took Kambosos’ professional record to a healthy 10-0 and sets up a mouthwatering bout against Western Australian Brandon Ogilvie at Hisense Arena on August 3.

Kambosos’ clash with Ogilvie will be the second main event preceding former world champion Green’s fight with fellow Australian Kane Watts.

Kambosos, from Sylvania, said in the aftermath of his fight with Nampepeche he was pleased with his preparation and the way he executed his game plan.

“He was tough,” he said.

“These other guys I’ve fought have been a good calibre too but he was very tough.

“He could take a great shot and all credit to him and all respect to him.

“The game plan was to use my jab, showcase my jab.

“The first round I was pushing a little bit too hard trying to go for that early, early knockout.

“My power has increased [massively].

“I can’t thank my supporters enough.

“All my friends and family, people have come a long way to support me.”

And the St George PCYC fighter had already turned his attention to the challenge of Ogilvie.

“In eight weeks I’m backing up for the biggest fight of my career,” he said.

Kambosos told The Leader earlier this month he planned on attempting to crackthe lucrative US market after the bout in Melbourne.
