Andrew Moloney looks to shine in Melbourne
Mon, 03 Oct 2022
Andrew Moloney is ready for the test of Norbelto Jimenez, as the Aussie stylist continues to hunt down a fight with pound for pound star Kazuto Ioka.
Moloney impressed last time out, taking out Alexander Espinoza in two rounds on the undercard of Devin Haney and George Kambosos Jr in Melbourne, and now Moloney returns to the scene of the crime as he looks to continue his good form against Jimenez.
Moloney opened up about preparation going into his next outing, coming on the undercard of Devin Haney vs George Kambosos II.
Moloney said, “I’m excited to be back and to be back at home is always special. I won my first world title in Melbourne, so it will be always be a special place in my heart. Thank you once again to Top Rank and my manager Tony Tolj who’s never failed to have mine and my brothers back for our entire career.
“You always find a different type of motivation when you’re at home, it’s a buzz being in front of your own people. I love fighting in Australia. I’ll fight anyone anywhere, I went to Chile a few years ago, but you can’t beat fighting in front of your friends and family.”
Moloney has held the WBA version of the world super flyweight crown, and has his sights set on a dream fight against Japanese legend Kazuto Ioka. The Gold Coast native discussed his ideals for a clash with Ioka down the line.
Moloney stated, “I’ve been vocal about my desire to fight Ioka, and it’s entirely in a respectful manner. He’s a great champion, and legend of the sport, it would be an honor to share a ring with him.
“My focus right now is on Jimenez on October 16, and then we’ll see where we go from there and I need to keep putting on quality performances to justify those claims and show the World, Andrew Moloney will be world champion again.”
