Adrien Broner will knockout Carlos Molina to overcome a ‘minor setback’

Looking to rebound from "a minor setback," Adrien Broner will battle Carlos Molina on May 3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The “minor setback" occurred in December when Broner (27-1, 22 KOs) relinquished the WBA welterweight title after getting unanimously outscored by Marcos Maidana.

According to the Associated Press, the 30-year-old Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) officially trumped Broner by counts of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109.

A powerful and beloved Argentinean, Maidana outworked Broner and floored the loudmouth in the second and eighth rounds.

Maidana, who is also a past junior welterweight champion, was far more active than Broner and landed bruising punches throughout the 36-minute slugfest.

"I had a minor setback, but I am back on May 3. Everybody needs to understand that I just took a loss," said Broner, 24, a Cincinnati native. "I haven't lost it. I'm still 'The Problem,' and anyone can get it, whether you are African, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban or Mexican."

Meanwhile, Molina (17-1-1-1, 7 KOs) hasn’t performed since suffering a 10th round TKO to Amir Khan in December 2012.

"I am so excited to be able to fight on a card of this magnitude against Adrien Broner,” said Molina, 28, who compiled an impressive amateur record of 105-20. "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."

Broner is a fragile, and largely unaccomplished, windbag.

However, Molina possesses feathery fists and his extended inactivity from the squared circle can’t be overlooked.

With blinding speed and greater overall skills, Adrien Broner should manhandle Molina at 140-pounds.

Although “The Problem” is far from an elite pugilist, Carlos Molina will ‘get it” within eight rounds this spring.
