Elton Dharry Planning A Major Upset Down Under Friday In
WBA Interim Super Flyweight Title Fight Against Undefeated
Aussie Boxer Andrew Moloney
Guyana-native Elton Dharry didn't travel halfway around the
world from New York City to Australia simply to pick-up a
paycheck, after his World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim
super flyweight title fight this Friday, against undefeated
Aussie fighter Andrew "The Monster" Moloney.
Dharry (24-5-1, 14 KOs) plans to ruin the expected
coronation of Moloney (20-0, 13 KOs), the No. 1-rated WBA
contender for the vacant title, who knocked out Miguel
Gonzalez (29-1) this past March in the fourth round of their
WBA Title Eliminator.
Moloney vs. Dharry is the 12-round main event streaming live
on ESPN+ from Melbourne, Australia.

"I came here because I believe I can win this fight. It's
the reason I traveled 30-plus hours to get here. I don't

whatever style. I'm going to do whatever it takes to win.

The 33-year-old Dharry, WBA-rated No. 5 and reigning WBA
Fedecentro and World Boxing Council (WBC) FECARBOX super
flyweight champion, will enter the ring riding a 21-fight
win streak dating back to 2010. As a bantamweight, Dharry is
a former International Boxing Federation (IBF)
Inter-Continental, Guyanese, and WBC Caribbean Boxing
Federation title holder. In his sixth pro fight, back in
2007, Dharry extended future four-time, three-division world
champion Leo Santa Cruz the full distance in a loss by way
of a four-round unanimous decision.
"We're extremely excited about this opportunity," Havoc
Boxing Promotions CEO Rob Diaz added. "Elton's head trainer,
Martin Gonzalez, has put together a masterful plan. We have
no doubt Elton will execute and bring the championship back
