Andrew Moloney-Pedro Guevara Interim Junior Bantamweight Title Showdown Confirmed as New Co-Feature to Lomachenko-Kambosos Super Fight at RAC Arena in Perth & LIVE on ESPN

Down under, Australia’s Andrew Moloney is gearing up to clash with Pedro Guevara for the WBC Interim junior bantamweight world title, now that Carlos Cuadras has gracefully exited stage left due to a mishap during training. This make-or-break fight is slated for Sunday, May 12, at the RAC Arena in Perth, Western Australia, adding a dash of unpredictability to the evening.

The event is part of a boxing card that also showcases a duel for the vacant IBF lightweight world title between Vasiliy Lomachenko and George Kambosos Jr. To spice things up further, WBA bantamweight world champion Nina Hughes will put her title on the line against Cherneka Johnson..

Moloney, buzzing with excitement to vie for the WBC Interim world title, is keen to dispatch Guevara with a “massive statement”. He’s eyeing to not just edge out a win but to do so with flair, against a tough opponent whose only losses are to world champions—and by the skin of his teeth at that. “I’m ready to be the first to not only defeat him but to do it with conviction,” Moloney confidently declared.

Guevara, grabbing this “fantastic opportunity” with both hands, is all set to throw down for the WBC green belt, expressing his enthusiasm for being part of such an important event and committing to not letting his fans in Mexico down.

Moloney (26-3, 16 KOs), who remains undefeated on Australian turf, is aiming to climb the 115-pound division ladder once more after a hiccup last May. Guevara (41-4-1, 22 KOs), from Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico, and ex-WBC light flyweight world champ, is thirsty for a win to overturn a split decision defeat to Cuadras last November.

The undercard is packed with dynamite matches, including a tough challenge for knockout wonder Imam Khataev and heavyweight bouts that will undoubtedly keep fans glued to their screens, all streamed live on ESPN+.
