By Ryan Maquiñana

One week after his thrilling war against Alfredo Angulo where he withstood a first-round flooring to stop the Mexican in the sixth round, the reborn James Kirkland and his team are already looking at their next challenge at junior middleweight.

“They’re talking about [Sergio] Martinez at 160, and Lara, but I’d rather see [Kirkland] fight Carlos Molina,” said Cameron Dunkin, Kirkland’s manager.

Molina has suddenly become the most avoided fighter in the 154-pound division after a controversial draw with Erislandy Lara that many thought he won as well as pitching a virtual shutout against Kermit Cintron.

“The fight makes sense.  Molina’s a good fighter.  He beat Cintron, [and] should have beaten Lara.  We’d like that fight next.”

Kirkland-K9 would be a really fun slugfest.

This fight makes little sense for Kirkland. Even if he wins, Molina just doesn't let you look good. Fight K9, Trout, or whoever has the WBO title, you deserve a shot at a title. Molina has proved himself to be a good fighter and is going to be avoided as long as he doesn't have barganing chips...

This is an odd choice for Kirkland. Not that it's not a good and compelling fight, but it seems it's a moderate-risk, low-reward kind of fight since Molina still doesn't really get his due in terms of public recognition. Seems like he could fight someone with a bigger name without taking on any...

I want Kirk to be fighting for the strap but this is definitely a bout that gets the blood boiling. Make it happen!
