Ogilvie thinks Kambosos will pull out of December meeting

WORLD rated lightweight Brandon Ogilvie believes that George Kambosos won’t be in the other corner come December.

The 22-year-old Ogilvie, who currently holds a lofty WBA #11 rating, thinks that the WBA #13 rated Kambosos will pull out of their highly anticipated grudge match on December 2nd in Sydney with a phantom injury.

“He’s known to have gone missing in the past when his mouth got him into a real fight” said Ogilvie to Aus-Boxing. “I think Oliver from Whack Promotions should take George’s passport; I think he’ll try to leave the country.”

Ogilvie’s team, led by father/trainer Brad and manager Brendan Bourke are under the same impression, citing Kambosos’ refusal to fight former Australian lightweight champion Darragh Foley earlier in the year.

“George is quick with the talk,” continued Brad. “But when it comes to backing it up, he starts ducking, look how he avoided the Foley fight.”

“This is the type of fight we need in Aussie boxing, the best two fighters in each division against each other,” added Bourke. “All the tables to the event are sold, but tickets are still available online. Bring on December 2.”

Ogilvie (17-1-1, 9 KOs) last fought in October, becoming the first fighter to stop credible import Amphon Suriyo. Meanwhile, Kambosos (10-0, 6 KOs) has been inactive since June, where he retired the undersized Issa Nampepeche in four.
