In this very special interview, Ally Melendez talks to the IBF Pan Pacific Lightweight Champ and #1 contender 'Ferocious' George Kambosos Jr. ahead of his huge title fight against the undefeated unified lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez in Madison Square Garden in one of the years most anticipated boxing matches.

Could this be the biggest fight in Australian boxing history? George tells us his thoughts as well as his predictions for this fight.

And who better to preview this fight but the man himself, George "Ferocious" Kambosos.

Kambosos Jr comes into this one as a big +650 dog, meaning he will pay out $650 for every $100 bet. That's up a few dollars from the opening price.

"I am feeling 100% great, physically and mentally," Kambosos tells Ally.  "It's been a long time coming."


That it has, with a lot of different scheduling opportunities. Finally we have a solid date, Saturday November 27.  Keep in mind that those in Australia will be watching the fight on Sunday, November 28 starting at around 12 Noon, but check your local listings.   In the States, the main card is set to get underway at 8:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 a.m. GMT, with the main event ringwalks at approximately 11:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 a.m.

In terms of the added preparation, Kambosos Jr. says he's "just taking it day by day and have gotten better every single day."
