Instead, Diaz will now challenge for Honey’s WBC title on December 5 in Las Vegas.

Haney’s promoter Hearn wants to make an undisputed title decider between the 28-year-old Combosos if the American retains his title against Diaz.

Hearn told ifl tv: “The obvious thing is to fight Devin Haney for all belts. That’s the fight, but Devin has to beat JoJo next week.

“You just had a situation where the underdog won, so Devin has to switch on.

“I would love to work with George and take him to Australia. That’s the dream. He comes from Australia and beat Teofimo Lopez to win all the belts.

“this is incredible.”
