On February 3rd we get the chance to see two interesting looking bouts take place in Australia as two Filipino fighters look to over-come unbeaten Australian twins.
At Bantamweight we'll see the unbeaten Andrew Moloney (11-0, 7) take on the under-rated Renoel Pael (21-4-1, 11). Moloney was a former amateur standout who has made a name for himself in the professional ranks thanks to wins over notable Filipino fighters like Jether Oliva and Markquil Salvana. The unbeaten man will be looking to continue that run as he takes on Pael, who has lost 3 of his last 5. Although Pael isn't in great form he has been fighting good fighters with losses to Ardin Diale, Go Onaga and Suguru Muranaka. Although on paper Pael is a live under-dog it should be noted that he's not a natural Bantamweight and could struggle with Moloney's power.
The other unbeaten Australian is Andrew's twin brother Jason Moloney (11-0, 10), who will be seeking his 12th win as he takes on experienced Filipino Marco Demecillo (22-6-1, 17). Again this bout look good on paper but sadly Demecillo looks to be a fighter very low on confidence and has gone 4-6 in his last 10, with 2 stoppage losses during those 10 bouts. He isn't a natural Super Bantamweight and will, like Pael, be expected to struggle against his foe's power and well honed skills. There is a slight chance of an upset, but it really is only a slight one.
