The Moloney brothers synchronously won the opening act for Haney and Kambosos


Rod Laver ArenaMelbourne, Australia. In the eliminator WBC in the bantamweight limit (up to 53.5 kg) ex-applicants agreed: an Australian Jason Moloney (25-2, 19 KOs) beat Nawaphona Kaikanhu (56-2-1, 46 KOs) from Thailand.

The fight was not competitive. Kaikanha strove to arrange a fight, habitually hunted for the corps. Moloney moved well, jabbed, at times he was not averse to hacking, but at the same time he confidently controlled the course of the battle.

After the final gong, the ring announcer announced the verdict of the judges: 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 in favor of the favorite.

J. Moloney UD 12.

Fighting for the vacant belt WBO International in the second flyweight (up to 52.2 kg) Australian ex-champion Andrew Moloney (25-2, 16 KOs) dealt with the ex-applicant from the Dominican Republic Norbelto Jimenez (31-10-6, 16 KOs).

In the opening round, Jiménez was penalized for hitting after the referee’s signal. And he was on the floor. In the 2nd three-minute period, Moloney scored another knockdown. Controversial this time.

It seemed to push a little, and Jimenez capitulates, but Moloney fussed with him the entire distance. Not impressed. Judges score: 97-90, 98-88 and 98-89.

E. Moloney UD one0.
