Molina, Dolton Have No Issue With Draw Outcome

LAS VEGAS - In the co-main event, undefeated super welterweights Domonique Dolton (17-0-1, 9 KOs) and Oscar Molina (13-0-1, 10 KOs) fought to a majority draw in an entertaining, back-and-forth scrap.
 
Dolton threw more punches than Molina, but Molina landed at a higher percentage and was able to land his power punches over 50 percent of the time. In round three, Molina had his best moments when he wobbled Dolton with a right hand, but Dolton regained his composure and finished the round strong. Both men continued to flurry at moments throughout the remaining rounds and were throwing punches all the way to the final bell.
 
The judges' totals were 95-95 twice and 97-93 for Fortuna. In total, Dolton landed 145 out of 479 punches while Molina landed 134 out of 326.
 
DOMONIQUE DOLTON
 
"I knew it was a close decision. It would have been fine either way. Close fight. He landed some shots, I landed some shots. I wouldn't have been mad either way.
 
"The game plan was to make him miss with the left hand and then get him with the overhand right. I got in there and started overpowering him. I decided to just beast him. I thought I would finish stronger at the end of the fight.
 
"He has really good timing. We're both technicians. I wanted to make him miss, he wanted to make me miss. He landed some more power shots but I made him work for it at the end."
 
OSCAR MOLINA
 
"I let it get too close, so I can't complain about the decision. I'll go home and watch the fight but right now I can't complain. The judges saw what they saw.
 
"The game plan was to stay relaxed, but I fell out of the game plan. I hurt him in the third round and it kind of messed me up. I started looking for that one shot to end it. I have to work on staying steady and relaxed.
 
"Dolton had real good foot work, he caught me lunging in. I've known him since the amateur days so I know how good he is.
 
"I'm motivated to get back in the gym and start going 20, 30 rounds without getting tired. I got gassed at the end but It's a learning experience."

Molina did the most damage, Dolton walked into a bunch of right hands trying to pressure using a shoulder roll.. Smart commentator was all about Dolton, how great he was doing, he got beat on, his face told the story.…
