Heavyweight veteran Eric Molina has no idea why unbeaten prospect Fabio Wardley, 26-years-old, is getting so much hype in the UK.

In his last fight, back in November, Wardley made a statement by blasting out Richard Lartey.

He will now face Molina, who lost in world title challenges against Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

Their fight takes place on Saturday night in Gibraltar, as part of the undercard to the heavyweight rematch between Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte.

Molina has studied videos of Wardley - and he doesn't see the reasoning behind the hype.

"I honestly don't get it, I think that he's got a lot to learn," Molina told Sky Sports.

"I see a lot of flaws in his movement, in his transition when he punches. I think there's a lot of opportunity for him to be knocked out. That's really what I think. It's kind of hard to look at him coming in, and his career. Short, no amateur experience. You can't tell me that he does everything correctly.

"If you look at him move and you look at him throw, and if you even look at him in his fights, there's a lot of room for him to be exploited. I think there are some up and comers there. I won't mention other names. I think there's a great batch of young heavyweights coming up and if you ask me, out of all the young heavyweights who I would rather face in that bunch, I'd rather face Fabio Wardley.

"These bookies got me 20-1. They've got him favorite. I mean, come on man. This guy, the best win that he's got is that cruiserweight that he fought. He was way bigger than that guy, and that guy was even landing punches on him. I'm excited."
