Khan-Molina May Land on The Cotto vs. Trout Card

By Nick Parkinson & Jhonny Gonzalez

Amir Khan's fight with Carlos Molina will take place on December 1 or 15 on Showtime, according to the British boxer.

If it takes place on December 1, it could very well become the co-feature to the junior middleweight title fight between Miguel Cotto and Austin Trout - taking place at New York's Madison Square Garden. Khan made his American debut at The Theatre in New York's MSG.

However, Bolton’s former world light welterweight champion would love to face the unbeaten American on home soil in his first fight since being stopped in four rounds by Danny Garcia in July.

Khan, 25, will work with new trainer Virgil Hunter in San Francisco for nine weeks to prepare for Molina after firing the world’s top coach Freddie Roach.

Khan also had talks about facing Northern Ireland’s Paul McCloskey in a rematch – but opted for Molina, 26, who will be stepping up from lightweight and has yet to challenge for a world title.

And Khan said: “I could have picked an easy fight but I’m going to have a tough one next because I want to bring the world titles back to Britain.

“We’re still in talks about where it will be, it’s where it will make most financial sense."

It is not just Khan's chin, it is his style and his confidence. This is almost a mirror image of what happened to Wlad years ago in his career. He was an ultra talented destroyer dismantling guys then he ran…
