Hence, his wins are often looked down upon by the fans. With no world champion fighter on his resume, ‘Ferocious’ needs to prove his worth against a worthy opponent.

Here’s a look at his record.

What is George Kambosos Jr’s record?

In an active pro-career of over eight years, Kambosos Jr’s record stands at 19-0 right now, with 10 KOs under his name. Kambosos Jr. has held several titles in his home country, Australia, and also the PABA title.
