The former 154-pound world champion Carlos 'King' Molina will be back in action on August 15 in Montreal, Canada, as part of the same event in which Lucian Bute will return to the ring against Andrea Di Luisa the light heavyweight division. Molina, who turned 32 in February, has not fought since October 2014 when he lost in Quintana Roo, Mexico, against Cornelius Bundrage.
"Molina is finally back on August 15 in Montreal, Canada, we are still looking for an opponent, but we want to be involved in a good match to ensure that he remains as a top ten junior middleweight in the world rankings," said his promoter Luis DeCubas Sr. to ESPN Deportes.
"I know his lawyer is working hard to see if he can return to the United States, but I know he can travel from Mexico to Canada without a problem."
Molina is open to facing Ishe Smith, Kermit Cintron and Cory Spinks in the comeback fight.
Molina was set to defend the IBF belt in March 2014, but during the week he was arrested for an old warrant related to a sexual harassment claim from a decade ago. After solving that problem, he was then detained by immigration authorities and eventually deported.
