Top contender challenges Pinoy champ Casimero

Published

Should John Riel Casimero forget Naoya Inoue? Since the fight has yet to show progress, the camp is ready to explore other options for the WBO bantamweight title-holder.

One of which is the top contender Jason Moloney who called out Casimero for a fight.

“I just want to be world champion. I just want that opportunity. If I’m ranked No. 1, yeah, Casimero, let’s go!” the Australian Moloney said.

Although not exciting compared to Inoue, the MP Promotions had taken consideration of Moloney alongside other boxers.

The questions left for Casimero is will he wait for Inoue? Or will he fight to earn and defend his belt?

Whose fight is better? Frankly speaking, it is Inoue. But Top Rank seemed to be overprotective of their new recruit, hence, Moloney is the more practical fight.

Upon defending his belt, big fights should come easy now for Casimero.

Casimero-Moloney could be the co-main event of the Teofimo Lopez-Vasyl Lomachenko unification bout in the lightweight division on October 3.

31-year old Inoue will defend his undisputed super bantamweight title against Nery.

29-year-old challenger Nery has the WBC and Ring magazine bantamweight titles plus the WBC super bantamweight title from 2020 to May 2021.

On the other hand, the undisputed Inoue who holds WBA and IBF titles plus WBC and WBO belts has never lost except a decision with Filipino ‘flash’ Nonito Donaire last 2011.

Francis Ngannou cries ‘deception’ vs Anthony Joshua camp

Former UFC fighter Francis Ngannou accused AJ camp of ‘trickery’ when he suffered devastating knockdowns in the first and second round last March 8, 2024 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The MMA fighter and former UFC heavyweight champion said that AJ camp sabotaged him by letting him go early in the arena.

“We both fought at 3am. What I think, something that’s happened is that they get me to the arena very early. Like my pickup time was 10.30pm to go to the arena. And then when we get to the arena, they tell us that we are scheduled around 1.45am. right?” Ngannou blurted.

He believed that he came exhausted, which resulted in his humiliating defeat.
