Eric Molina is Hoping To Land a Fight With David Price

Heavyweight contender Eric Molina’s manager, Lee Holliday, is working with the British Board of Boxing in hopes of getting Molina an early release from his suspension.

Molina was given a two-year suspension by the British Boxing Board for an illegal substance discovered in post-fight testing following his loss to Anthony Joshua in England on Dec. 10, 2016.

“I’m hopeful that the British Boxing Board will consider allowing Molina an early release on his suspension,” said Holliday.  “It is coming up on two years since the Joshua fight.  I know David Price is looking for an opponent in England.  If we are fortunate to get the release, Molina would be happy to fight Price.”

The British Board of Boxing found a banned substance and Molina thought it was part of the B12 supplement he was taking.

Molina is 26-5 with 19 KOs and Price is 22-5 with 18 KOs.

IN OTHER NEWS: TACOMA, Wash. – For four rounds, Giovanni Cabrera Mioletti was able to do whatever he wanted in the ring, landing a barrage of punches seemingly at will.

So much so in fact, that there would not be a fifth round.

Junior lightweight Cabrera Mioletti defeated Carlos Padilla after the ringside doctor stopped the fight at the conclusion of the fourth round in their Battle at the Boat 117 main event Saturday at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash.

Cabrera Mioletti improved his record to 13-0-0 with 4 KOs. Padilla fell to 16-8-1 with the loss.

The entire card was chalk full of devastating knockouts as four of the six bouts ended early.

Seattle's Shae Green (2-0-1, KO) looked incredibly impressive in defeating highly-regarded Jorge Linares (4-2) by first-round TKO. Green put Linares down three times in their 138-pound bout, which ended at the 2:51 mark.

Cris Reyes improved moved to 4-0 by registering his third consecutive win by knockout. Reyes put away Keith Wolf in the second round (1:58) of their 138-pound bout by TKO.

Juan Gomez opened the night by winning his professional debut with a third round TKO over Gilberto Duran.

Also on the undercard, Yakima’s Andres Reyes (8-3-1) defeated Sean Gee (4-9) by split decision (48-47, 47-48, 48-47) in a battle of 147 pounders, while 140-pound Andres Garcia Abarca defeated Luis DeAlba by unanimous decision (39-37, 39-37, 39-37).

good fight, pricey looked a bit better last fight surprisingly so i think i'd give him a good shot then again weve seen fighters on molinas level demolish price in the past.

No no no. Drug cheats are a blight on the sport. You get a 6 month ban and a lucrative rematch in the US. Not the UK.

Can't hate on this fight if I'm honest, I actually fancy Price's chances in this one.
