Broner v Molina: The Problem told to expect war in Vegas

| 01.05.2014

Former three-division world champion Adrian Broner (27-1-22KO) has been told to expect war when he returns to the ring against Carlos Molina (17-1-1-7KO) this weekend.

Broner had his unbeaten record taken away from him by Marcos Maidana last time out and looks to get his career back on track with an easy win in a 10-round fight on the Floyd Mayweather v Maidana undercard.

At the extremely short price of 1/50 The Problem looks nailed on for a winning return but his Mexican-American opponent has taken confidence from Broner’s defeat and near miss against Paulie Malignaggi.

Broner beat Malignaggi on points in what some see as a controversial decision and Molina’s best hope – given his lack of real punching power – is to outwork his rival in the same fashion and give the judges at ringside something to think about.

And this is exactly what the 28-year-old plans to do when the lights come down at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this weekend.

“We’re going to go in there and give him a war,” Molina told Boxing News 24.

“I’ve watched a lot of fights of his. The main thing is to let our hands fly, and it’ll be a fun fight. After I beat Adrien Broner, it’ll even more exciting to be on the undercards of Mayweather.”

Few fight fans are giving Molina much hope in this bout, but if he can stick to this wise game plan he could start to look a shrewd bet for a points win.

Broner, with 22 KOs to his name, will be looking to win in style and put Molina on the floor inside the distance but with just one KO defeat on his resume it could be wise to back this fight going all 12 rounds come what may.
