Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

With super flyweights Andrew Moloney (21-1, 14 KOs) and Joshua Franco (17-1-2, 8 KOs) set to run it back this weekend after Franco took the WBA’s ‘regular’ title in June, Moloney is raring to go, looking to avenge his first professional loss.

Speaking to RingTV, Moloney expresses his gratitude to Top Rank promotions for allowing him the chance to get right back at it, where he’ll hopefully correct what went wrong last time.

“I am doing absolutely everything possible to make sure that I leave the ring on November 14 with (the WBA regular) belt strapped around my waist. It was a close fight last time around and I was nowhere near my best in that fight. This gives me great confidence that I can win this rematch convincingly.”

Moloney wouldn’t detail what specific changes he’s looking to make in this rematch, but did say reflecting on his last performance has really inspired him to do much better this time around.

Conversely, though, Moloney is also aware what another loss here would mean for his career trajectory, and with that in mind he believes this is a must-win situation. This should surely play out to be another fight with good action considering the style matchup, and Moloney is expecting for it to steal the show for the Terence Crawford-Kell Brook card.
