Molina: After I Beat Amir Khan, The World Will Know Me!

Underdog Carlos Molina believes Amir Khan's scalp will be his ticket to world title glory as the two men prepare to square off in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The unbeaten Californian is being portrayed as a soft touch with Khan returning to the ring on the back of two devastating defeats against Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia.

Molina's record of 17-0 with just seven knockouts - built at lightweight before this step up to light-welterweight - is not the most threatening Khan has faced but both Peterson and Garcia were also rank outsiders before upsetting the British fighter.

Khan's name still carries weight, however, and Molina believes inflicting yet another defeat on the Bolton man will pave the way to a world title shot.

"I'm just excited to be fighting Amir Khan," the 27-year-old American told Press Association Sport. "I know this is a big step up for me and beating Amir Khan is going to catapult me to the next level, which is becoming a world champion.

"It's a huge step up in class but I think that's only going to elevate my skills and being in the ring with Amir Khan will take me on to a whole other level. The whole world is going to know who I am when I beat him.

"I think there's more pressure on him because everybody's looking at him beating me in an easy fight. Little do they know they picked the wrong opponent. I have no pressure, I've just got to go in there and do what I've been doing my whole life, which is just fight. I've been doing it since I was a little kid."

Molina added: "I know he's probably going to be a little more defensive in the early rounds but once he starts to get hit, he's going to go back to the same Amir Khan we've seen before. We're going to test that chin on Saturday night and find out if he's chinny!"

I've been watching Molina since he first showed up on the scene. He's good with both hands and with his timing. I've only see Danny Garcia fight like once or twice and from that small sample I'd say Molina was…
