In the WBA’s bid to merge their two divisional titles together, Davis, 27, could be in line to face Kambosos.

And according to World Boxing News, the matchup may be mandated ‘in the next few months or by the end of the year’.

Kambosos, 28, won the WBA belt, along with the WBO, IBF and WBC ‘Franchise’ straps in a shock upset over Teofimo Lopez, 24, in November.

The Australian became a sensation overnight following the win and is now in a position to call the shots.

Devin Haney, 23, who has the full WBC title, has called for an undisputed title decider.

But Vasilily Lomachenko, 33, and Ryan Garcia, 23, are among the other names to also challenge newly-crowned unified king Kambosos.

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

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

“I love the Lomachenko fight. A big name and Tank Davis as well. Ryan Garcia has got a huge name. I want to see him back in the ring first.

“We’re sitting here negotiating, making sure they’ll come to Australia first. That’s the most important that they’ll travel down.

“I know for a fact that Haney will and Lomachenko will. So that is a big plus right away.”
