Carlos Molina Ready For Juan Manuel Marquez in Mexico

By Miguel Rivera

Former world champion Carlos 'King' Molina, who recently got a victory in in Ecatepec, State of Mexico, is ready to fight face Juan Manuel Marquez in his farewell fight, tentatively scheduled for December. Molina is rebuilding his career after losing the IBF junior middleweight championship to Cornelius "K9" Bundradge.

Molina (23-6-2, 7 KOs) got a stoppage win, at junior middleweight, over Manuel 'Mamba' Garcia during last week's undercard to Arely Muciño vs. Yessica Chavez.

Molina has been discussing the idea of moving down to the welterweight division. Marquez, a former four division champion, has yet to make a decision on whether or not he intends to fight again. If he does, Molina is raising his hand to become the opponent.

"I'm raising my hand to face Juan Manuel Marquez at the end of year," Molina told ESPN Deportes. "For me it would be like a dream [to get in the ring] with someone like Juan Manuel Marquez. He is a legend, and do it in Mexico [would be perfect]. I hope that I can secure it, because I'm going down to welterweight and I was world champion, so I hope this can be achieved."

[QUOTE=PBP.;16087438]Lmao...that would be an odd fight. Molina is probably the one guy that can make a Marquez fight unwatchable.[/QUOTE] yea, I thought he was a strange choice of opponent
