Moloney Eyes Tanaka Showdown on Lomachenko-Kambosos Undercard

Australian super flyweight contender Andrew Moloney is gearing up for a potential clash with the winner of the WBO super flyweight title bout between Kosei Tanaka and Christian Bacasegua Rangel. As Moloney sits at the third spot in the rankings, he eagerly anticipates moving into the top spot after the championship showdown in Tokyo on Saturday. Moloney, confident in Tanaka’s victory, eyes a slot on the undercard of the Vasyl Lomachenko vs. George Kambosos Jr. IBF lightweight title clash scheduled for May 12 in Perth.

Having previously fought Tanaka’s countryman Junto Nakatani for the same vacant title, Moloney is optimistic about the possibility of facing Tanaka, expressing his belief in the Japanese fighter’s prowess. Moloney sees the potential match as an opportunity to showcase his skills on a global stage, given Tanaka’s status as a renowned name in Japan. Despite the ongoing talks between Top Rank and Tanaka’s team, Moloney acknowledges the need to wait until after Saturday’s results before finalizing any arrangements.

Tanaka, a former minimumweight and light flyweight world champion, has a stellar record of 19-1 with 11 knockouts. Moloney is confident that Tanaka will secure victory against Rangel, paving the way for a potential showdown in Australia. The 11-week turnaround is seen as feasible, contingent on Tanaka’s willingness to travel Down Under. Moloney is eager for negotiations to commence and hopes to secure a spot against Tanaka, either on the upcoming Perth card or in the near future.

As the anticipation builds for Saturday’s title clash in Tokyo, Moloney remains focused on his quest for a championship opportunity, whether against Tanaka or as the next mandatory contender in line. The boxing world awaits the outcome of these talks and the potential spectacle that could unfold in the super flyweight division.
