“There is no relationship there,” Kambosos instructed the Nine newsletter.
“I do my thing, they do theirs. I wish them all the best. I know Tim’s trying to become a world champion. I’m world champion now. I know what it takes to get to the top. If he were to call me right now, I’d put everything aside and say, ‘This is what I think’. If I can help, I will.

“Obviously him (Charlo) being the undisputed champion, all the cards are in their favour,” No Limit Boxing leader government George Rose instructed Fox Sports News previous this week.
“Where we’re at at the moment is we’re pushing an Australian or US location. We’d love it in Australia, obviously they want the US location and if it is in the US we’d be pushing for LA or Las Vegas. I think the likely timing of it would be October-November.”
No Limit Boxing and TGB Promotions have till June 20 to set a date, paperwork at the WBO website online showed.
