WBA Oceania congratulate Luke Boyd. Commitment and dedication has finally paid off for our Super Bantamweight champ with a #14 world ranking in the latest WBA monthly ratings for April 2020.
WBA Oceania wishes our champion a very Happy Birthday. Also stay tuned for a major announcement in the coming days.
The WBA Oceania has had some real barn-burner fights in 2019 but nothing could compare to their last title fight for 2109 at the Brisbane Convention Centre last night. Not only was it an action packed fight, it had eveything from exceptional skill, warrior mentality...
The highly anticipated rematch of the year is all go tomorrow night as both fighters came in under the 72.58kg limit for the WBA Oceania Middleweight Title. Michael Zerafa 72.55kgs and Jeff Horn 72.20kgs. Good luck and may the best man win.

Unbeaten WBA cruiserweight super champion Arsen Goulamirian (25-0, 17 KOs) retained his world title with a fourth round knockout over WBA #11 rated and current WBA Oceania champ Kane Watts (21-4, 13 KOs) on Friday night at the Accor Hotel Arena in Paris, France.
Goulamirian teed off on Watts from the opening bell. After round three, trainer Abel Sanchez implored Goulamirian to “get him out of there.” Goulamirian obliged moments later by dropping Watts for the count with a left hook to the body. Time was 1:08 of round four.

By Jake Donovan Jason Moloney is as eager to land a second career title shot as has been getting rid of the competition in his way. The top-rated bantamweight contender made quick work of Dixon Flores, stopping the visiting Nicaraguan in the second round of their...
Unbeaten Australian Andrew ‘The Monster’ Moloney 21-0 (14) claimed the vacant WBA interim super flyweight title with an eighth-round stoppage of Elton Dharry 24-6-1 (14) at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne, Australia on Friday night.
Moloney has the better of the action through the first four frames before being rocked in the fifth by a right uppercut from the 33-year-old Brooklyn-based Guyanese. Moloney’s knee momentarily hit the canvas and it could have been scored a knockdown.
Trainer Angelo Hyder admonished his fighter between rounds.
You tried to knock him out, he said. You didn’t listen to me, you disrespected him.
I still knew where I was and was smart enough to get behind my jab, Moloney said after the fight.
I thought I was going really well until he popped my ear drum and that wasn’t a good round but otherwise I felt in control and things were going to plan.
Moloney regrouped in the sixth, landing hard shots to the head that caused Dharry’s right eye to begin to swell. For the next two rounds Moloney continued to dish out the punishment until the ringside physician recommended the fight be stopped between the eighth and ninth rounds.
This is unbelievable, Moloney said after the fight. This has been so many years of hard work and sacrifices for this moment. I can’t believe it, it’s finally happened. It still hasn’t sunk in yet, I still think I’m dreaming, because I’ve dreamt it so many times.
I’m my toughest critic and I’m not really that happy with the fight, but I’m world champion.
I would have loved a more spectacular finish and knock him out and win more convincingly but I’ve got his belt so I can’t be too upset.
Moloney added: He’s a tough, tough man. World titles don’t come easy, and I was expecting a tough fight, and that’s what he gave me. Thank you, Elton.
The 28-year-old is the mandatory contender for full WBA 115-pound champ Kal Yafai 26-0 (15).
Bring on Yafai. I’ve been chasing him for a long time now. Let’s make it happen, Moloney said.
