Moloney said, “I feel great, I’ve had made weight properly and I have had a fantastic camp for this fight, possibly the best camp I’ve had in the professionals.
“Travelling to Chile hasn’t been a problem, and if any of their confidence has been based around that then they should be extremely worried because you can expect a career-best Anthony Moloney tomorrow evening.”
The Monster continued, “We are not overlooking the task in hand, but once I beat Gonzalez we want Kal Yafai next. I want to prove I am the best Super Flyweight on the planet and I believe by beating Gonzalez and then Yafai, people will take note that I am.”
Moloney’s manager Tony Tolj gave his take on the March 22 clash in Chile, “This is not an easy fight for Andrew but I am very confident that he is going to win and win in style.
“Andrew and his brother Jason are two very special fighters and I consider the pair undefeated. It is going to take a very special fighter to produce a special performance to beat either one of these. I fully expect the pair of them to become world champions in 2019.”
