Adrien Broner will look like ‘a heavy and fast train’ against Carlos Molina

Former three-division world titleholder Adrien Broner said Tuesday that he “will be fly” versus Carlos Molina.

Broner (27-1, 22 KOs) will face the 28-year-old Molina (17-1-1-1, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The Problem” last vacated the squared circle in December after getting universally 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 to capture the WBA welterweight belt.

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

Also a past junior welterweight champion, “El Chino” was far more active than Broner and landed bruising punches throughout the 36-minute slugfest.

"Losing that fight was definitely the best thing that ever happened to my career,” said Broner, 24, a Cincinnati native who is hopelessly smitten with Floyd Mayweather.

“If Adrien Broner didn't lose that fight, if you think I'm a jackass now, what would I have been (if I won)? I thank God that Maidana slowed me down in my tracks even though it is still a heavy and fast train."

Molina, who compiled an impressive amateur record of 105-20, hasn’t performed since suffering a 10th round TKO to Amir Khan in December 2012.

"Carlos Molina is a hell of a fighter and he is going to come to fight," Broner said. "He's going to come to kick my (expletive) because I'm sure going to come to kick his. I will be fly and I'm still flashy."

Broner is a fragile, and largely unaccomplished, windbag.

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

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

Although still “a jackass,” expect Adrien Broner to knock Carlos Molina onto Queer Street within eight rounds this weekend in “Sin City.”
