Carlos Molina: I have the power to beat Adrien Broner
By Scott Gilfoid: Carlos Molina (17-1-1, 7 KO’s) doesn’t see himself as the sacrificial lamb being brought in to be slaughtered by Adrien Broner (27-1, 22 KO’s) on May 3rd like a lot of fans see him, Molina actually sees himself as having a good chance of beating Broner. He believes his power, such as it is, will be enough for him to beat Broner. Molina isn’t saying he’ll knock Broner out, but one gets the sense that’s what he’s hoping to do.
This is going to be funny watching the light-hitting Molina going after Broner on May 3rd. Man, if Broner looks horrible against this guy then he’s going to be in a deep hole with his career. If a light hitter like Molina can beat Broner or make him struggle to win, it’s going to be a bad sign for Broner. He’d pretty much have to go back down to the lightweight division if he didn’t want to get beaten up by the best light welterweights in the division like Lucas Matthysse or Danny Garcia. Heck, Molina isn’t even a contender at 140, and that makes it even worse for Broner if this guy beats him or goes life and death with him.
The Broner-Molina fight will be taking place on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Marcos Maidana undercard on Showtime pay-per-view. In getting a sense of what boxing fans are saying about the fight card, the Broner-Molina fight is already being singled out as by far the worse one on the entire card due to it being seen as a mismatch with the little 5’5 ½” Molina being seen as too small and weak to beat Broner or even make it an interesting fight.
Molina said “I am so excited to be able to fight on a card of this magnitude against Adrien Brone. Sure he’s tough but we all saw what happened in his last fight when he was under pressure. I have the boxing ability and punching power to beat him and that is exactly what I plan to do on May 3.”
For Molina to beat Broner like he thinks he will, he’s going to need to do some pushups or something to develop some power in the next month because he doesn’t have the punching power to pound Broner like Marcos Maidana did last December. Molina’s 7 knockouts on his resume tells you that he doesn’t have much power, and he sure didn’t show much in the way of power in his last fight against Amir Khan in 2012.
