Marvellous Moloney

LISMORE boxer Daniel Moloney bounced back from a heartbreaking defeat in Brisbane to register an impressive win at Grafton on Saturday night.

Moloney was too strong for Grafton boxer Kurt Murphy as the two went toe-to-toe in a non-stop and bruising exchange of punch after punch.

The victory comes exactly one week after the senior light middleweight boxer lost a points decision 16-15 in a cliffhanger bout at the Queensland Novice Titles at Acacia Ridge.

"He really needed and wanted this one," trainer Arthur Maloney said.

"Dan is a good walk-up fighter and he really gave it to him (Murphy)."

Another Maloney's Glove Club member, Jed Cullen, came away with a points victory in the Australian Boxing Association tournament at Grafton.

Maloney's latest prospect, Dylan Montgomery, showed plenty of heart in his debut bout.

"He played a full game of rugby league first and got man of the match," Maloney said.

"It was his birthday, too, so I was very happy with how he went."

Billy "The Kid" Robinson was unlucky in the main heavyweight event against home-town favourite Corbin Robertson.

"It was a unanimous decision but Billy gave as good as he took," Maloney said.

"He cut Corbin under the eye early and should be proud of how he went."

Maloney is hopeful of a rematch in Lismore in August.
