Although their Top Rank U.S. debut wasn't made for 2019, top contenders Andrew and Jason Moloney will still have their next bouts be streamed on ESPN+.
The promotional company announced that ESPN+ will stream a boxing card in Melbourne, Australia on November 15 starting at 3 a.m. ET. Andrew will fight Elton Dharry for the newly-created interim WBA super flyweight title while Jason defends his WBA Oceania bantamweight title against Dixon Flores at Margaret Court Arena. Both brothers signed promotional deals with Top Rank Boxing earlier this year.
Andrew has long been the mandatory challenger for Kal Yafai's WBA super flyweight world title and despite many times in which he's called out Yafai, a fight between the two has never materialized. Yafai is closing in on a potential title unification against WBC champion Juan Francisco Estrada, but it has yet to be officially announced.
Jason has been on a two-fight win streak ever since he narrowly lost to Emmanuel Rodriguez with the IBF bantamweight title on the line in the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinals in 2018. In Jason's two fights of 2019, he beat both of his opponents by TKO in five rounds or less.
The ESPN+ stream will also include a four-round heavyweight fight between former rugby star Paul Gallen and retired Australian rules footballer Barry Hall, who is making his pro debut.
