Carlos Molina-K9 Bundrage Heading To Cancun, 9/6

By Salvador Rodrigiez

According to promoter Luis De Cubas, IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos 'King' Molina will defend his belt against mandatory challenger Cornelius "K9" Brundage on the 6th of September in Cancun, Mexico.

Molina (22-5-2, 6 KO) has not fought since last September, when he won the world title from Ishe Smith in Las Vegas. He was set to face Jermall Charlo in March, but the fight was canceled after Molina was arrested a few days before the fight, over an outstanding warrant, and later deported back to Mexico over a visa issue. Brundage (33-5, 19 KO) is coming off a January final eliminator win over Joey Hernandez.

"The fight is confirmed for September 6 in Cancun. We are just missing some small details, but the fight is ready," said De Cubas. "I talked to Carlos, he is preparing very well. He now has a date and he's happy to be fighting."
