Jason Moloney is hoping for a return to action in the coming months, as he continues his push towards a third world title attempt in 2022.
Moloney sits high in all of the world sanctioning bodies, and currently holds the WBC Silver and WBO international titles in the 118-pound division.
With a world title fight between lineal champion, and former Moloney foe Naoya Inoue being in negotiations to fight WBO world champion Paul Butler for all the belts, Moloney is left with a waiting game, as he waits to challenge the winner.
Moloney, who is promoted by Bob Arum’s legendary Top Rank Promotions and is managed by Australian boxing architect Tony Tolj, discussed his ideals in the interim whilst he waits for the 118 world title picture to get cleared up.
‘Mayhem’ stated, “I want to become world champion, and I want to stay active, so something has got to give at the moment. If Inoue fights Butler, I just want to fight as I’ve always done, so I would love to feature on the second Haney vs Kambosos Jr card in Australia and continue pushing for that world title shot.
“I still have points to prove to myself and to the boxing world, and I know for a fact the Jason Moloney that boxed Naoya Inoue has improved so much since. Im in the gym always learning and improving, I wouldn’t take anything away from Inoue, but I can tell you, that I’ve improved since and I’m ready to come of age and become a world champion and the next available opportunity.
“If Inoue and Butler don’t fight, I’ll fight Butler, simple. I’ll travel to the UK to fight him, and I’ll win. I’m not about games I come to fight.”
With Haney and Kambosos Jr rumored to take place in the final third of the year in Australia, Moloney opened up about his desires to feature on that card in a prominent fashion.
The Melbourne native said, “I’d love to fight on that card in my home town in some form against a big name. I’ve put on some good performances since the Inoue fight that I hope the officials at Top Rank have enjoyed, so I hope that puts me in line to fight quite high up the card.
“I’ve been positioned very well and I hold WBC and WBO titles currently and I’d want to defend them against a challenger that wants to fight because when a fighter stands and trades with me, I show how explosive I can be, and that’s what I hope people watching enjoy to see.”
