Molina is Planning For Fireworks in Williams Clash

By Ryan Burton

Lightweight contender John Molina (24-2) will look to bounce back from his stunning September first round knockout loss to Antonio DeMarco when he steps in the ring against Dannie Williams (22-2) on Friday evening. The fight will headline the latest installment of ESPN's Friday Night Fight series.

Friday's contest is the true definition of a crossroads fight. Williams bounced back from a 10 round unanimous decision loss to Hank Lundy last March by knocking out the unheralded Rynell Griffin in October. Whoever wins this fight will move on to bigger and better things while the loser may have to look for another line of work.

Molina recently spoke to Boxingscene.com and said that he had a great training camp for the fight.

"Training went really well. I am both mentally and physically ready. I went through a gauntlet of emotions in life but I'm a stronger man because of it," said Molina referencing his September loss to DeMarco.

Both Molina and Williams are known for their power. Molina expects an exciting fight for the fans. While he feels that a win over Williams will put him in position for another meaningful fight, he refuses to look past his opponent.

"It is going to be a great and exciting fight! A victory puts me back where I need to be, which is in the win column. The plan is go on to bigger things from here but first things first. I must beat Williams for that to be possible," Molina told Boxingscene.com
