"It was a great fight," said Molina. "I was a little rusty, but it's not an excuse, Redkach was a really tough guy. We got the job done and never gave up. A fight is a fight, it's not over until it's over."

Both men came out looking to throw power punches from the start, and it was Redkach who struck first, pinning Molina in the corner in round two before dropping him with a combination. Molina was able to drastically change the tide of the fight in round three fight a perfect right hand that landed flush as Redkach was already off balance and sent him to the canvas.

Redkach was able to survive the round, but Molina connected again in round four with a right hand that stunned Redkach and a clubbing left hook that put him down again. This knockdown prompted referee Eddie Hernandez to wave off the bout 1:27 into the fourth round, giving Molina a big victory with his family watching ringside.

"You always dig deep with your family watching," said Molina. "You never want to lose in front of your family. I'm always going to fight until the very end. I had a tough opponent in front of me but I did what I had to to get the victory."

The opening bout of the telecast saw Wale Omotoso (27-3, 21 KOs) score a unanimous decision victory over Freddy Hernandez (34-9, 22 KOs) in a 10-round welterweight contest.

These guys couldn't dance if the mat was on fire. John is possum slow, but that right hand sounds like a cannon when it lands. As long as the other guy isn't fast and slippery John has a good chance.
