Moloneymania: Andrew Moloney heads home to Melbourne December 9

Moloney discussed his ring return, “I’m itching to be back in the ring, and thank you to my promoter Top Rank for getting me this opportunity and coming together with Wild Fighter Promotions and Dragon Fire Boxing for putting everything together for putting it all together so I can get back in the ring before the years out and set up a big 2024.”

“I’ve rested and reset after the Nakatani fight. I’m ready to get back in there and I know I’m still improving, that’s what’s exciting, and I may go down to flyweight in 2024. That’s yet to be determined, I’m still ambitious in the sport and will be World Champion again by any means necessary!.”

Standing in the way of a successful Moloney ring return is Filipino Judy Flores, who comes from the same camp as Unified world champion Marlon Tapales and Naoya Inoue Challenger.

Moloney opened up on his opponent on December 9.

“Flores is a solid customer, I’m not overlooking him at all. He comes from a really solid camp which has multiple current and former world champions, so he’s going to be game and try to test me. That excites me.

“He knows he has nothing to lose and everything to gain, I need to show I’m back to my best and have another world title in me, so there’s a lot at stake on December 9.

“I believe I have a lot left in the tank and I intend on showing it December 9 in Victoria. It’s always nice to box at home, and put on a show, so I’m zoned in on putting on an explosive performance.”
