On Thursday, June 25 at 6.00 p.m. Jason ‘The Smooth One’ Moloney meets Oscar ‘Jaguar’ Negrete in a 10-round bantamweight fight. It will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a live broadcast on ESPN+. Moloney vs Negrete betting predictions show a clear favourite.
Boxing finally returned to the MGM Grand on June 9th for the first time since mid-March. The fight will be held at the MGM Grand Conference Centre, but with no crowd in attendance. Jason Moloney and his brother Andrew flew from Australia to Vegas in early May, thanks to Andrew already being a world champion. Along with their promoters Top rank, they are excited by the prospect of ‘Moloney Week’ in Las Vegas. This will be their stateside debuts, in which they will both headline a Top Rank ESPN televised fight card. Bigger fights await them should they win and make a good impression.
Both Moloney and Negrete hoping for future title fight
29 year old Jason, who is ranked in the top five of all four major organisations, will take a step closer to a second world title shot if he beats Negrete, who has two top 15 rankings. In 2018, he fought Emmanuel Rodríguez in Orlando for the IBF Bantamweight World Championship. He lost the fight via a split decision. Moloney said of Negrete “Like me he’s fought for a world title once before and fallen short, so I’m sure he’s going to be really really keen to win this fight and get himself back into world-title contention.” He continued “It’s a must-win fight for both of us with the stages we are at in our careers but I’m too determined and too hungry to let him stop me from achieving my dreams.”
On current form, Moloney vs Negrete betting predictions make him favourite to emerge victorious on June 25th. TV broadcasters hyped Moloney’s last fight on November 15, 2019 against Dixon Flores as a serious challenge from an aggressive opponent. Moloney defeated Flores in two rounds. In what turned out to be a complete mismatch, he won by knockout to retain a regional WBA bantamweight title. He currently has a record of 20-1-0 with 85 percent of wins by KO.
