Last Updated on May 4, 2024 12:06 pm by Erwin Noguera

Australian Jason Moloney was not afraid to fight away from home and expose his World Boxing Organization (WBO) bantamweight title against Japanese Yoshiki Takei. 

In a weekend with good action in this sport, Moloney, a 33-year-old veteran, wants to revalidate his status in this category, but facing him is the local fighter, who comes to this day undefeated. 

The promotion of this fight was in charge of Ohashi Boxing Gym and itis expected that more than 50 thousand people will attend this night, which has as its main event the duel between Naoya Inoue and Mexican Luis Nery. 

For Moloney, it will not be an easy test. However, the Australian has already shown that with his experience he grows in this type of event. Takei will have a lot of pressure for being local, which could be a double-edged sword.

Why bet on Jason Moloney?

“I am in excellent physical condition,” with that phrase Jason Moloney stepped into Japan to challenge for his World Boxing Organization bantamweight title.

The 33-year-old Australian is coming off a successful defense of his belt on January 13 of this year, when he defeated Saul Sanchez by split decision in Quebec, Canada. Two judges voted in his favor and another one gave a draw. Moloney has been the king of the WBO division since May 2023, that is, almost a year ago. That day he beat Vincent Astrolabio in the United States to take the vacant belt. 

Of this fighter, it must be said that he has a record of 27 wins, with 19 knockouts, and two defeats, one of them by way of a stoppage. 

Another fact to take into account is that Moloney’s reach is 1.65 meters, so he is a short fighter, which could mean that he will prepare a fight with a lot of exchange of punches. 

Why bet on Yoshiki Takei?

At 27 years of age, Japan’s Yoshiki Takei will possibly have one of the most important evenings of his career, as he has the chance to become world champion. He triumphed in his last fight,as he knocked Mario Diaz Maldonado to the canvas when only two of the eight agreed rounds had been fought. 

Takei is undefeated in eight fights and he won all of them by knockout, which clearly shows how hard his punches are. Only once he went 11 rounds and that was against Bruno Tarimo. 

However, for this fighter, this is his most important night andthis also brings pressure on a person who has always fought at home, but not in front of the crowd that awaits him at the Tokyo Dome. 

Final Betting Analysis – Jason Moloney vs. Yoshiki Takei

To find Moloney’s last loss, we have to go back to 2020 when he was knocked out by Naoya Inoue, another boxer from Japan who will also fight that night. Since then he has six wins in a row. Having battled Inoue makes his name recognized by the Japanese public, who already know they are waiting for a fighter who does not throw in the towel easily. 

Takei has to live with the fact that he is expected to second Naoya Inoue, who is the big star of the night for this country in that evening. The Japanese is a southpaw and as a curious fact, he is a former K-1 world champion, which is a martial art.

At Gambyl Exchange we find that Jason Moloney is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of 1.25, while Yoshiki Takei has 3.8. 

Jason Moloney is an excellent fighter, who is probably living the best moment of his career, as evidenced by the fact that he is the owner of the belt, however, Takei’s undefeated will remain in Tokyo. The WBO title will change hands after a decision victory. 

Go for a straight win for Yoshiki Takei in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the win at 3.8, you will gain $280 for a total payout of $380.
