Boxing and breakfast: Tszyu and Moloney fight Saturday

Tim Tszyu and Andrew “The Monster” Moloney will take center stage on the next edition of “Breakfast and Boxing” on Saturday, Sept. 8. at the new Bendigo Stadium in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. In the 10-round main event, 154-pound prospect Tszyu (10-0, 8 KOs), will face his toughest test to date against Marcos Jesus Cornejo (19-3, 18 KOs).

In the co-feature Moloney (17-0, 10 KOs), ranked in the top 10 by all four major sanctioning bodies at 115 pounds, will defend the WBA Oceania super flyweight belt in a 10-rounder against former WBA super flyweight world champion Luis “El Nica” Concepción (37-6, 26 KOs).

Tszyu-Cornejo and Moloney-Concepción will stream live in the United States beginning at 7 a.m. ET on  ESPN+ — the new multi-sport, direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service from The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer & International segment in conjunction with ESPN.

“Concepción is an extremely tough and very experienced boxer. He always comes to fight and puts a lot of pressure on his opponents,” Moloney said. “I know that I will have to be in great condition for this fight.”

Tszyu, the son of the Hall of Famer Kostya Tszyu, was featured on ESPN+ in his previous bout, a first-round knockout against Stevie Ongen Ferdinandus on the undercard of the Tevin Farmer-Billy Dib 130-pound world title bout. Cornejo, from Argentina, has 14 knockouts within the first two rounds.

Moloney, named the 2017 Australian prospect of the year, will be making his third appearance of 2018. In his last bout, May 19 against Richard Claveras, he survived a seventh-round knockdown en route to a wide 10-round points win. This will be the fourth defense of the WBA Oceania super flyweight belt for Moloney, who won it in spectacular fashion with a fourth-round TKO against Raymond Tabugon in August 2017.

Concepción, one of Panama’s most decorated boxers, won the WBA super flyweight title with a unanimous decision against Kohei Kono on Aug. 31, 2016. In his next fight, he failed to make weight and lost a decision to the unbeaten Kal Yafai, who still holds the title. He is 2-1 since the Yafai defeat and is coming off a second-round knockout win against Luis Carrillo in Panama City.
