Jason Moloney Wants Rodriguez-Gaballo Winner
Australias Jason “Mayhem” Moloney 21-2 was last in the ring on Halloween night against Japan’s Naoya Inoue, the Pound for Pound King. The fight earned the pair the (JBC) Japanese Boxing Commission fight of the year.
Moloney was taking a second shot at the WBA and IBF world titles after losing a very controversial split decision to Puerto Rico’s Emmanuel Rodriguez in 2018, his only previous career defeat.
“As you go through fights, you learn things from previous fights, and I think I’m getting wiser and better,” Moloney stated. “Moloney has a great defense, and it was challenging to get through. He is one of the best boxers I have ever faced,” the champion said.”
Moloney is ready to get back into the title hunt, possibly with a familiar foe.
Moloney gave his thoughts on Rodriguez Gaballo and his fight prediction on their WBC ordered interim title rematch.
“Rodriguez v Gaballo was a decent fight, but I thought Rodriguez won the fight fairly comfortably. Gaballo was the more aggressive fighter, but I don’t think he was landing any effective shots. Perhaps Rodriguez should have done more at times and made it a little more convincing, but I still thought he’d certainly done enough to win”.

“I think Rodriguez should win the rematch. I think he’s the better boxer and will know coming into this rematch that he needs to do more and win more convincingly this time around.”
“I would love the opportunity to fight the winner. My goal and dream are to become World Champion in 2021, and I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.
I’m very confident that I beat both Gaballo and Rodriguez.”
“I’ve improved massively since my split decision loss to Rodriguez in 2018, and I would love the chance to prove that, get my revenge and earn myself a chance at another World Title.”
“I’m ready to make this fight happen as soon as possible.”
