The current WBA super flyweight champion Briton Khalid Yafai is expected to line up for a unification fight in January which means the WBA world title will go to Moloney.

The 28-year-old, who trains under former Danny Green cornerman Angelo Hyder, remains unbeaten after 21 fights.

The loss was the first for Dharry, who is from Guyana but lives in Brooklyn, in more than a decade.

He had the early running and did some damage in the fifth, with Moloney stumbling before the eye became an issue.

But Moloney looked super fit and ready to go the distance.

"It's been so many years of hard work and sacrifices," Moloney said.

"I'm not that happy with the fight but I'm world champion."

His twin brother Jason Moloney also took a step towards another world title crack with a brutal knockout victory over Nicaraguan Dixon Flores to retain his WBA Oceania bantamweight title earlier in the night.
