The first of those was former world title challenger Richard Claveras (18-4-2, 15), who took on Andrew Moloney (17-0, 10) in a bout for the WBA Oceania Super Flyweight title. Claveras went out aggressively but the more technically skilled Moloney proved to be too smart and too quick on the whole, and even fought southpaw at one point as he racked up the rounds. The Filipino was always dangerous, and showed that by dropping Moloney in round 7, sadly though the Australian was pretty much able to avoid Claveras's power in the final 3 rounds to take home a clear and wide decision.
The second bout saw former 2-time WBA Super Flyweight champion Kohei Kono (33-12-1, 14) [河野 公平] move up to Bantamweight to face off with unbeaten Australian prospect Jason Moloney (17-0, 14). Kono fought like he always does, looking to force a high tempo war, and to begin with Moloney tried to avoid a fire fight, using his better boxing skills to land at range. Both men landed some great though remarkable Kono was dropped by a jab in round 3. Kono suffered a cut in round 4 that worsened through the fight and in round 6 it was a mess, covering the ring and Moloney in claret. Kono managed to get past a doctor's inspection in round 6 but was stopped at the very start of the following round, with the cut ruled to have come from a punch.
With the win Moloney is thought to have secured his spot in the Bantamweight World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) whilst Kono will be expected to think hard and long about his future. This is only the second stoppage loss of Kono's careeer, but it does seem like he's looking his age now.
Before either Claveras or Kono fought there was also a loss for Korean fighter Dong Young Kang (3-5-2), who was dropped in round 2 before losing a decision to Tim Hateley (4-4-1)
