Molina vs Conyers Will Produce Fireworks, Says Margules

LAS VEGAS - On Friday, April 29, 2011, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will present Molina vs. Conyers for the second occurrence of the series, "Fight Night at The Cosmopolitan,"to be televised live on ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights."

Leon Margules, promoter of the ESPN2 "Friday Night Fights" broadcast from the luxurious outdoor deck of The Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, says he is excited to bring fans a can't-miss main event featuring Chicago's "King" Carlos Molina and fellow spoiler Allen "The Dream Shatterer" Conyers.

Returning to the scene of his career-defining draw with Erislandy Lara in March, Molina (17-4-2, 5 KOs) will face Conyers (12-4, 9 KOs) in a 10-round junior middleweight bout that is sure to bring the action to the heart of the Las Vegas strip.

Molina vs. Conyers serves as the replacement for the originally scheduled Victor Cayo vs. Lamont Peterson fight, which had to be called off due to an injury to Cayo.

"Both of these fighters are coming off the biggest fights of their careers," said event promoter Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing Promotion. "They both want to continue the momentum they've built by scoring another big win and both guys rarely take a step back in a fight. It will be a real treat for the fans. It's a can't-miss brawl and we've got it!"

The gritty pair are both known for their penchants for pulling off upsets against top-rated prospects. Molina was last seen in March fighting to a draw with Lara, that most observers felt he won. In January of this year, Conyers beat highly touted James De la Rosa by unanimous decision, dropping him three times.

Scheduled for the undercard are undefeated Cuban super featherweight Rances Barthelemy (11-0, 9 KO's), and Texas lightweight Hylon Williams Jr., (13-0, 3 KOs) in separate bouts.

On fight night, doors will open at 4:30 pm. The first fight is at 5:00 pm and the main event will begin promptly at 6:00 pm.

The Cosmopolitan proudly presents another uniquely glamorous evening of world-class professional boxing; and this time, overlooking the heart of The Strip on the open-air multilevel deck of the city's most fabulous luxury pool, The Boulevard Pool. Tickets are on sale now and are priced at $50, $150 and $250 for the VIP experience, which includes a private section with comfortable seating and complimentary cocktails. Special Cabana packages also are available. Tickets are available for purchase at www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com or by calling 877-551-7776 or 702-698-6880.
