Anthony Mundine praises George Kambosos Jr. after the Battle of Theofimo Lopez

Boxing and rugby league legend Anthony Mundine used social media to praise George Cambosos, but he didn’t exclude himself.

Anthony Mundine declared George Cambosos “Australia’s greatest boxer” after his upset victory over Theofimo Lopez (AEDT) on Sunday.

Cambosos shocked the boxing world with the defeat of Lopez’s split decision, which took part in the match as an overwhelming favorite.

With his victory, Cambosos won the WBA, IBF, WBO and Ring lightweight titles and in the aftermath declared himself “the biggest fighter in Australian history”.

Now, the 28-year-old’s bold claim is supported by Mundin, who said he was “proud” of Cambosos’ achievements.

Former WBA World Super middlweight titleholders couldn’t resist taking the opportunity to sing the praise of Cambosos and at the same time make a big note of themselves.

“From the best Australian sportsmen to the best Australian boxers, my guy enjoys the moment when no one can rob you of it. I’m proud of you !!! !! “, Mundine wrote on Facebook.

The Sunday fight at Madison Square Garden was Lopez’s first fight since defeating Vasiliy Lomachenko in Las Vegas over a year ago.

Cambosos hasn’t stepped into the ring for a professional match since defeating Lee Selby in the Halloween split decision last year.

However, the Australian kept his undefeated record intact throughout the weekend and fired to completely dispel the predictions of a knockout in the first round of Lopez.

The end result may have come as a surprise to boxing professionals, but Cambosos said it was just another day in the office.

“Did I change all week? Did I change my entire career? Never,” he said.

“I believe in myself, I support myself. I said many times, you may not believe it, but I believe in myself and look at me now Yes, I have all the jewels. “
