Im keen as for it. It’s a huge opportunity and will lift Moloneys career to the elite level if he can win.

Sadly though I can’t see him being anything other than deserving of a big underdog title in this one

Exerts from the interview :

“We believe we can defeat Inoue,“ said Jason Moloney. “That’s why we have taken the fight. We have had our eye on this fight for a long time. It has always been a fight that I have wanted. I have got the opportunity now so I am very excited and we are going into the fight truly believing we can beat him."

“I don’t start and stop camps really – we train all year round. I always try to keep myself in great shape. Between fights I am always trying to improve as much as I can. I don’t particularly stop and start camps. Obviously things have ramped up a little bit now. I am already in great shape. I am sparring ten rounds and feeling fantastic.”

“We are flying out to Las Vegas on the 29th of September. We will be there for a month before the fight. It will be the same as last time I believe- once we have landed – we will be staying in a private house."

“I am confident that I will shock the world on October 31 in Las Vegas and defeat Naoya Inoue to become the IBF/WBA bantamweight champion.”
