Australian twins, Andrew and Jason Moloney headline LIVE Boxing return on FOX SPORTS

Boxing fans can rejoice and settle in ringside for the return of live boxing next week on FOX SPORTS, over two big nights, from the iconic MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, with bouts headlined by Australia’s boxing twins, Andrew and Jason Moloney.

On Wednesday, June 24, Andrew “The Monster” Moloney will return to the ring to defend his WBA Super Flyweight title against Joshua “El Professor” Franco with LIVE coverage from 9.00am AEST on FOX SPORTS 505.

Andrew won his title with an eighth round stoppage win over Elton Dharry in Melbourne last November. His opponent, Franco, is 16-1-2, competing in both the Super Flyweight and Bantamweight divisions, most recently scoring a ninth round TKO victory over Jose Burgos in January.

Two days later on Friday, June 26, WBO No. 2 bantamweight contender Jason Moloney goes head-to-head against Leonardo Baez in a 10-rounder for the Bantamweight contest with LIVE coverage from 9.00am AEST on FOX SPORTS 505.

Jason most recently fought and won against Dixon Flores, also on the same card his brother Andrew won his world title in November.
