The man known as “The Monster” has been gunning for the WBA World Super Flyweight Championship opportunity against Kal Yafai for over year. All the top rated fighters refused to take on Moloney. Concepcion has stepped up to the plate and will come to Australia. The winner will be right in the mix for the World Title opportunity.
 
Concepcion is no stranger to travelling as he previously beat Japanese Icon Kohei Kono for the WBA World Super Flyweight Title in Japan and David Sanchez in Mexico.
 
Moloney has great respect for the former World Champion, “Concepcion is an extremely tough and very experienced boxer, he always comes to fight and puts a lot of pressure on his opponents. I know that I will have to be in great condition for this fight.

"I am very familiar with how Concepcion fights, I have watched him many times over the years as he has always been one of the top guys in the Super Flyweight division.

"My dream is to become World Champion. Every day I am doing absolutely everything I can to achieve this dream."

Concepcion was the last man to hold the WBA Super Flyweight Title before the current champion Kal Yafai.  I want to show everyone what level I am at by beating Concepcion and then we will set our sights on Yafai next” States Moloney
 
The event will also feature son of a legend, Tim Tszyu. As well as Aussie prospects, “Golden Greek” Adam Kaoulas, Che St John and more.
 
Twin Brother Jason “The Smooth” Moloney face Puerto Rican IBF World Bantamweight Champion Emmanuel Rodriguez in the Quarter final of the World Super Series, date to be determined.

For the "coveted World Boxing Association Oceania Super Flyweight Championship." I don't think "coveted" means what the author thinks it means

Concepcion hasn't looked the same since getting outclassed by Yafai, but I'm not a big believer in Moloney, so this one could still go either way. I'll say Moloney gets off the canvas to win a decision
