Carlos Molina is Confident That He Will Shock Josh Kelly

Mexico City, Mexico - King Carlos Molina (28-8-2, 8KO) will battle Josh Kelly (5-0, 4 KO ) in Cardiff on the undercard of Anthony Joshua and  Joseph Parker. The clash is a scheduled ten round event for the vacant WBA International Welterweight title.

Molina readily admitted prior to the fight he had no idea who Kelly was. “I had to go to Youtube and watch his fights,” he said. “I’m not one to turn down fights, and knew quickly I wanted the fight  AND- the opportunity that comes with it,” Molina said. “I watched his five pro fights, and he has some impressive looking skills, but nothing I haven’t dealt with before.”

Going in to the fight with Kelly, Molina warms to the fact he’s considered somewhat of an underdog. “I think anyone I’ve ever fought has underestimated me,” he said. “Eddie Hearn picked me to fight his top prospect after only five fights. I think that is a understatement of the knowledge and sheer ruggedness I bring to the ring.”

While Kelly’s style as a pro is still developing, Molina carries with him the style gained by a veteran in the ring. “My style isn’t what most people think it is,” he explained.

“I’m tricky and I box, I have defense that my first trainer Lou Askanette instilled in me from day one that has been a huge part of my success in boxing, and it’s a tool I use in every fight. People usually appreciate my fighting style more after they see me fight a second or third time. It sounds strange, but it’s hard to see what I’m doing in there with all the subtle things that I make happen.”

Molina is excited about facing Kelly and fully intends to make the best of the bout. “I think my skills aren't as flashy as Josh Kelly , but just as effective. I have beat the boxer, the puncher,  the prospect , the champion, and  I have retired fighters and ended careers,” he stated. “I'm still that beast and Josh Kelly isn't any different . I'm going  to his hometown like Highlander and take all his power after I beat him . There can only be one.”

This big card in Cardiff has a co main event titled 'Pedo beatdown' It's hard to believe a country like the Uk allows pedophiles in and squashes any form of free speech. Very sick people in charge.

Its only 5 fights in but Kelly will beat him. There's no point him fighting bums, he should be fast tracked to the top like usyk. The kid is something special.
