Davis, 27, could be next in line to face the Combosos, in the WBA’s bid to tie their two divisional titles together.

And according to World Boxing News, match-ups could be mandatory ‘in the next few months or by the end of the year’.

Kambosos, 28, won the WBA belt in November with WBO, IBF and WBC ‘franchise’ straps in a stunning victory over 24-year-old Teofimo López.

The Australian team became an overnight sensation and is now in a position to shoot.

Devin Haney, 23, who holds the full WBC title, has demanded an undisputed title decider.

But 33-year-old Vasily Lomachenko and 23-year-old Ryan Garcia are among other names who have also challenged the newly crowned unified King Kambosos.

And the man himself admitted that at 135lb all the main players are under consideration for his next fight he wants in a stadium back home.

Kambosos told Fox Sports Australia: “I love Haney’s fight, and I love the WBC piece.

“I love Lomachenko fighting. A big name and Tank Davis too. Ryan Garcia is a big name. I want to see him back in the ring first.”

“We’re in talks here, making sure they come to Australia first. It’s most important that they travel downstairs.

“I know for a fact that Honey and Lomachenko will. So that’s a big plus.”
