Chris Arreola To Face Eric Molina on February 18th Bill

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised by multiple sources that heavyweight Chris Arreola (34-2) will face Eric Molina (18-1) on the Paul Williams-Nobuhiro Ishida undercard that takes place on February 18th in Corpus Christi, Texas. The fight will be televised by Showtime. IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud will also defend his title against Gabriel Campillo in the televised co-feature. 

Molina, a Texas native, is promoted by Don King while Arreola is promoted by Goosen-Tutor.  Molina knocked out Warren Browning in his most recent fight which took place on the Abner Mares-Joseph Agbeko undercard last August.

There had been talks that Arreola's fight would also be televised but so far there hasn't been confirmation that Showtime will turn the event into a tripleheader.

Hopefully its an entertaining scrap, if Chris doesn't feel confident to step back up in comp let him just thrash softer opponents until he is because his fights are fun to watch generally.
