I think I heard Carlos Molina only had very few amateur fights, not sure if he won most of them or not. He's also not a "Mexican" in the Chavez/Morales/Canelo way, so I'd still count him.

The problem was, his day job was at Burger King. So turns out he made the right choice, his talents were much better suited to the pros.
Good choice, indeed!

Actually both of them were quality (not elite at world level) amateurs, national champs. Rios was an Olympic alternate

Actually I wouldn't doubt if it was true, Librado's style is terrible for amateur boxing, he's slow with his punches and on his feet, a 1 dimensional come forward fighter. He isn't a hard hitter either, that head gear really took a lot off his power. He gets his ass kicked practically every fight, however his opponents eventually tire from hitting his iron chin and he manages to walk them down.

I remember him telling Edison Miranda that he always gets his ass kicked in sparring and didn't understand why lol.
