Ishe Smith Injured, To Withdraw From Molina Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF junior middleweight champion Ishe Smith (25-5, 11KOs) revealed that he suffered an injury and plans to withdraw from his scheduled defense against Carlos Molina (21-5-2, 6KOs) on July 19th at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

The fight was scheduled to headline a Showtime televised tripleheader. No word if the entire card will be canceled or if the other two fights will move ahead. Mickey Bey was set to face John Molina and Badou Jack was being positioned go up against Farah Ennis.

"I suffered an injury today, a minor set back in my preparation to face-off against Molina. I want to make sure I am properly prepared and in the best form possible to fight him. Not only does he deserve to fight me at my best, but also my family, friends and training team deserve to have me fight at 100% It’s very hard to postpone after we have had such a great camp, but the sport of boxing and the fans deserve to watch Molina and I fight at our peak fitness levels, and I just can’t provide that with the untimely injury," Smith wrote.

"With that said I will be postponing our July 19th fight in order to heal from a cut on my eye. Stay tuned to my twitter account and I will post a picture of the injury in a few days. Thank you for all your support, today and always. God bless you all. So bummed, so hurt, wish I could turn back the hands of time but I can't. I love you guys, this breaks my heart but their was nothing else I could do."

Molina is not a joke and he's one tricky son of a gun. He's robbed most of the time, but man when that kid wants to fight he comes in there to bring it.

i dont care at all about this fight.... Ishe only got a title because he boys with Floyd and had him fight the weakest champ in years at 154.. Ishe is just a dead man walking,,, Moline would easily beat…

I hope they have this fight later when Smith is healed. Smith kept his word and gave Molina his long overdue title shot.
