by Francisco Salazar

Former junior middleweight world titleholder Carlos Molina will face Carlos Gorham in a 10 round welterweight bout tonight.

The bout will take place at the Centro de Convenciones in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico. Televisa will air the fight card throughout Mexico.

Molina (26-6-2, 8 KOs) is coming off a close split decision win over Javier Prieto in his last bout on June 18.

He has won his last four bouts since losing the IBF junior middleweight title to Cornelius Bundrage in October of 2014.

Molina has wins over Ishe Smith, Cory Spinks, and Kermit Cintron. He fought to a draw against Erislandy Lara in March of 2011, a fight many believe Molina did enough to win.

Gorham (16-3, 10 KOs) knocked out Fernando Carcamo in the 10th round on July 2. The 27-year-old Gorham has won his last nine bouts.

In the other televised bout, light weight Marcos Villasana will face (19-6, 11 KOs), who has won his last four bouts in a row, will face unbeaten, yet untested Rosekie Cristobal (12-0, 9 KOs) of the Philippines.
