ESPN+ to air Nov. 15 Moloney twins doubleheader

Thanks to ESPN+, American viewers will get a chance to see Jason and Andrew Moloney in action on Friday, November 15th.

“Extremely early-rising American viewers,” I should say.

Jason (19-1, 16 KO is the far more proven of the two thanks to a stoppage of Kohei Kono and highly competitive loss to Emmanuel Rodriguez in the Super Series bantamweight quarterfinals last year. He’s since scored a pair of knockouts in his native Australia and now faces Dixon Flores (16-6-3, 5 KO), a 25-year-old Nicaraguan who is 1-1-1 (2 NC) in his last five but recently knocked out Alexander Espinoza.

Flores is seven spots behind him in the WBA rankings.

Andrew (20-0, 13 KO) is Kal Yafai’s #1 contender, but will instead fight #5 Elton Dharry (24-5-1, 14 KO). The Guyana native hasn’t lost since 2009, but hasn’t fought anyone worth a darn, either. Moloney’s résumé is anchored by a 2018 knockout of the badly shopworn Luis Concepcion.

If we do decide to have live coverage for this, let me be the first to say: not it. (Note from Scott: We will. I’m it.)
