Andrew Moloney Q&A
When did you start boxing and why?
I started Boxing when I was 13 years old. I always liked Boxing and wanted to get fit during pre season of Australian rules Football. Me, my brothers and a few mates went down to the local gym and the rest is history.
What is your first memory in the sport?
My first coach Joe Mahon (RIP) driving me and my twin brother Jason to our first fight. His car was overheating so he had to drive really slow, it took us about 6 hours to get to the venue. Jason and I both had our first fight on the same day against the same kid, we both lost. We found out later that the opponent had already had over 50 fights and two years later he represented Australia at the Olympic Games.
Which fighters do you pattern yourself after?
I try to take little things from a lot of different fighters, the main fighters would be Canelo, Julio Cesar Chavez, Juan Manuel Marquez, Sugar Ray Leonard, Andre Ward.
Who are your favorite current or recent pro fighters?
Canelo and Lomachenko are my two favourite fighters at the moment.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I’m a pretty decent Barber. I cut a few of the boys in the gym’s hair and all the sparring partners that stay with us in camp. We also play table tennis as a warm up everyday in the gym so I’m pretty handy on the table tennis table.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I lost my first 7 amateur fights.
Who are your favorite pro sports teams and non-boxing athletes?
Carlton Football Club (AFL) Usain Bolt Conor McGregor

Do you have any superstitions or pre-fight rituals?
No I don’t like superstitions.
Where do you want to be 5 years from now?
5 years from now I will be the Undisputed Super Flyweight Champion of the World and financially secure.
If I wasn’t a professional boxer, I would be…
I’m honestly not sure. Boxing is all that I know, I’ve never really had a plan B. I was a Personal Trainer for 8 years before I was able to Box Full time, so I would probably still be doing that.
What or who is the biggest motivation in your life and why?
My Son is my biggest motivation. I need to succeed in Boxing to so that I can provide for him and give him a good life.
It’s a mix of ‘Ready or not’ by The Fugees and ‘The Champ is Here’.
