Joshua Franco vs. Andrew Moloney 3
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA 14/8/21
Joshua Franco left no doubt in his trilogy with Andrew Moloney, as he picked up a unanimous decision victory to retain his WBA super-flyweight title.
They met at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma on a Top Rank event broadcast live on ESPN, with defending champion Franco (18-1-2, 8 KOs) defending his title in style against Moloney (21-2, 14 KOs).
All three judges score the bout 116-112 for Franco (18-1-2, 8 KOs), who won the title from Moloney last June in their first bout.
Franco said: “I had to switch it up on him. He thought I was going to put pressure on him the whole time. That wasn’t working, so I had to switch it up and go to my boxing skills.
“I had fun with my rhythm, with my jab, my feet. I’m comfortable in there, and that’s what I did. We just told each other, all that talking is part of the game, part of building the fight up.
“He’ll be world champion again. He’s a strong fighter. Nothing but respect to him. I wish him the best in his career.”
