Following a few weeks to get back into the swing of things, Top Rank is set for its first title fight in months. On June 23 inside the MGM Grand Conference Center, the WBA Super-Flyweight Title is on the line.
The main event will feature Andrew Moloney defending his title against Joshua Franco. Before they face off in the ring, they faced off during the weigh-ins.
Moloney (21-0) won the WBA Super-Flyweight Title in his last fight against Elton Dharry back in November. Initially an interim fight, Moloney was named to undisputed champion shortly after. A former WBA Oceania Super-Flyweight Champion, Moloney has also held the Commonwealth Super-Flyweight and Australian Bantamweight Titles. He was the first fighter to show up to Top Rank’s Las Vegas gym along with his brother Jason.
Making his professional debut in 2015, Franco (16-1-2) was on a 13-fight win streak before losing to Lucas Emanuel Fernandez Leone back in 2018. “The Professor” has since gone 3-0-2 during that time. Franco’s last fight was a TKO-win against Jose Alejandro Burgos back in January.
