In light of the recent WBC convention, it appears that two of boxings utmost gentleman may clash in early 2023.

Jason Moloney has been a mainstay on ESPN, after giving a balls to the wall performance against Naoya Inoue, which, if anything, increased his value in the 118 pound division; the all action Aussie had lined up four consecutive wins, inserting himself at the top of the WBC rankings.

Moloney, who has been managed by long term Oceania boxing guiding light Tony Tolj, now sits in a healthy position at the top of the WBC rankings.

Moloney opened up on his positioning with the WBC, “I’m very happy to be where I’m at in my career right now, and thank you to Tony (Tolj), Don (Majeski), Top Rank and of course the WBC for positioning me at the top of the rankings. I’m delighted to be in this position.

“2022 has been a good year, a year of improving and now I’m ready to finally achieve my goal of being a world champion, a following for the long list of great champions the WBC have had.”

Standing in the way of Moloney is the incomparable Filipino Flash, Nonito Donaire. A legend of the sport, Donaire is a future hall of famer, and despite two fights with the Monster, Naoya Inoue, Donaire still has aspirations to become world champion.

Moloney discussed a perspective showdown with the great Filipino champion.

The Australian stated, “It’s a dream to fight one of the best fighters of the past 3 decades. Donaire is one of the greatest of all time. Boxing is a gentleman’s sport, I come to do damage in a ring, but I have respect for my opponents and I can only ever say respectful things about Nonito.

“It’s more motivation, however, to be able to beat such a great fighter, who’s still shown he has plenty in the tank, it defines my legacy as a fighter and a champion. That’s the goal for any fighter, and I hopefully get to do that against Nonito Donaire.

“Stylistically this is a great fight. I’ve shown I have many different tricks up my sleeve, and Nonito is an adaptable fighter. This could be a boxing clinic or an all out war. I’m ready for both. You won’t want to miss it, rest assure 2023 will be the year of Mayhem.”
