The first of these cards will feature a title bout between WBA “Regular” super flyweight champion Andrew Moloney taking on Joshua Franco on June 23. This will be Moloney’s first title defense as he looks to secure an eventual title fight against “Super” champion and future Hall of Famer Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez. Franco, who is coming off a win against Jose Alejandro Burgos in January and a three-fight series against Oscar Negrete, is unbeaten in his last five fights.

The second of these events will see Moloney’s brother Jason taking on Leonardo Baez in the main event of the June 25 event. Jason, a former world title challenger, is looking for another bantamweight world title opportunity after signing a promotional deal with Top Rank. Baez has won his last six fights and is entering the fight with an 18-2 record.

Lastly, Top Rank will return to Mexico on June 27 with a fight card featuring WBC super featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt. Berchelt will take on Eleazar Valenzuela in a non-title bout.
