  • Background: Moloney will begin the rebuilding process at home. The 30-year-old Aussie, a capable boxer, came to the United States with a perfect record and high hopes early last year but left after three disappointing outings against fellow 115-pound contender Joshua Franco in a span of 14 months. He lost a close, but unanimous decision in June of last year, their November fight was ruled a no-contest after Franco suffered an eye injury from an accidental head butt and Joshua won a wider decision this past August. Saludar is a solid opponent with some power but a step down from Franco. The 32-year-old Filipino has had success against second-tier opposition but has fallen short against elite foes, including a second-round stoppage against McWilliams Arroyo and a unanimous decision against Takuma Inoue. He rebounded from a seventh-round TKO against Ryoji Fukunaga in February of last year by outpointing Reymark Taday this past March, his most-recent fight. Moloney is the twin brother of bantamweight contender Jason Moloney.
