PHOT CREDIT EVERLAST
Andrew Moloney (born 10 January 1991) is an Australian professional boxer who held the WBA (Regular) super-flyweight title from February to June 2020, having previously held the interim title since 2019. He also held the WBA Oceania bantamweight title from 2016 to 2017 and the Commonwealth super-flyweight title in 2017. As an amateur, he won a gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the flyweight division. As of June 2020, he is ranked as the world’s seventh best active super-flyweight by The Ring magazine, eighth by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and ninth by BoxRec.
Following his success at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Moloney turned professional in October 2014. In 2018, Moloney fought former titlist Luis Concepción, who was ranked #5 by the WBA and #15 WBC at the time, and beat him via tenth-round stoppage.
On 15 November 2019, Moloney, ranked #1 by the WBA at the time, challenged WBA #5 Elton Dharry for the vacant WBA interim super-flyweight title and came out victorious via eighth-round TKO. After Roman Gonzalez won his fight against Kal Yafai, originally set for the WBA (Regular) super-flyweight title, Gonzalez was subsequently elevated to WBA (Super) champion, which left the space for Moloney to be elevated to the new WBA (Regular) super-flyweight champion. *
