BoxingScene.com has confirmed that junior middleweight contenders James Kirkland and Carlos Molina will meet in an HBO-televised broadcast on Jan. 28.

The news comes on the heels of a Nov. 13 report on this site that originally reported Team Kirkland’s interest in a Molina fight.

The explosive Kirkland (30-1, 27 KOs), from Austin, Tex., has re-established himself as a force in the 154-pound division since the southpaw reunited with trainer Ann Wolfe and subsequently stopped Alfredo “Perro” Angulo in a thrilling six-round war in November.

Meanwhile, the much-avoided Molina (19-4-2, 6 KOs) is coming off an impressive three-bout stretch in 2011 that includes a dominant ten-round unanimous decision over Kermit Cintron, a seventh-round TKO of Allen Conyers, and a controversial draw against Erislandy Lara that many thought he had won.

Talks are under way to determine a venue for the bout.

Molina destroys Kirkland this fight won't even be competitive

comment by Corelone, on 12-08-2011
Maybe things work out for the best by accident. Canelo is a logjam in the division, fighting old men, for a paper title that nobody really wants to see. Now we get what could be a championship fight for regular prices, hopefully, and real competition, instead of an outright fix. If Conelo fights ...
