Andrew Moloney vs Froilan Saludar

Moloney entered the fight with a 21-2 record with 14 victories by knockout, but without knowing the victory in his last three fights after facing in an interesting trilogy the champion Joshua Franco. For his part, Saludar stood for the first time in a boxing event outside the Asian continent and faced possibly his highest level rival, bringing a record of 32-4-1 with 22 wins by knockout.

There was no study round among the boxers, since from the opening bell they came out to distribute blows in a very even first round that showed the philippine hitting a good number of circular blows on Moloney’s face, and the latter combining well blows to the body and to the face.

Although with less intensity, rounds 4, 5, 6 and 7 were once again an absolute control of Moloney, who dominated the distances in a spectacular way and exerting pressure on Saludar managed to corner him with ease and grind him with blows in the short distance.

In the last 3 rounds of the fight Moloney repeated the dose and dominated from start to finish each of these rounds, increasing the volume of blows to Saludar’s body a little. Despite the beating the Australian gave his opponent, the latter managed to survive the 10 rounds and in the end it was a unanimous decision victory.

In general terms, Andrew Moloney was seen to be much superior to Froilan Saludar, and to a certain extent that was what was expected by the fans considering the history of each of the boxers and that the former champion would be at home. Moloney showed a boxing with many tools, moving very well between distances and creating angles, combining great shots to the body with shots to the face, looking solid at close range and delivering nice power shots.

For his part, Saludar takes the ‘victory’ of having survived the 10 rounds of the fight, because near the third round his boxing was already almost nil and he dedicated himself to withstanding the onslaught of Moloney, who suggested on several occasions that he was was getting closer to getting the knockout.
