Carlos Molina Confident He Can Beat Canelo and Lara

Watching Saturday night's pay-per-view fight between former champions Saul Alvarez and Erislandy Lara, IBF Light Middleweight Champion "King" Carlos Molina had to have felt like he wasn't invited to his own party.

Alvarez and Lara duked it out this past Saturday (July 12) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas with Alvarez winning a close decision over a gun-shy Lara. And while an old-school fighter like Molina appreciates when top contenders don't make excuses and face each other, what bothers the 31-year-old champion is the way the fight was billed.

"The media kept saying that Canelo and Lara was supposedly between the two best fighters at 154 lbs, like I'm not even there," said Molina. "They're trying to overlook me and not give me a chance. And after the way they both looked in there, I know I could beat both those guys. I already beat Lara, not officially, but in the eyes of most people who saw the fight."

Molina has a strong case. When Molina took on Lara in March of 2011, despite what the scorecards said (the fight was ruled a majority draw with two judges scoring 95-95 and one giving Molina the win with a much more accurate 97-93 tally), Molina handled Lara much more handily than Alvarez.

"Every time you see a fight in your weight class, you try to see how you would fight them and neither guy looked really spectacular. Give me the chance and I'll do to Canelo what I did to Lara. I'm the true champion in this weight class."

Molina (22-5-2, 6 KOs) is currently training hard for his next fight, a defense against former champion Cornelius Bundrage in Cancun, Mexico.

"Training is going great. I'm very focused and everything is good. Eager to get in the ring and show once again I belong at the top of the division."

[QUOTE=_original_]Molina molests them both in the ring. Canelo-Molina late this year in Mexico?[/QUOTE] Good pun! This one genuinely made me LOL. [QUOTE=PBP]Exactly. I'll tell you what will happen right now. Alvarez lands more eye catching shots, while Molina does dirty inside work, a lot...

[QUOTE=PBP]The elite fighters at 154 create the worst style clashes that can possibly be made[/QUOTE] There are only 3-4 exciting top 10 fighters at 154. Alvarez, Cotto, Angulo and Kirkland - not many.

Molina's name was mentioned before the Angulo fight. It was going to be him or El Perro to face Canelo but he didn't abide by the law and was deported. Now he's lost almost all chance he had of the pay day against Alvarez. He knows this.
