Team Carlos Molina Targets Saul Alvarez Showdown

By Rick Reeno

Luis DeCubas Sr., the promoter for newly crowned IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina (22-5-2, 6KOs), would like to match his fighter against Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs). Both fighters were in action on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Molina captured the IBF belt with a twelve round decision win over Ishe Smith, while Canelo lost a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Canelo plans to take a small break and then he wants to start training for a potential return in the first quarter of 2014.

"I want to get Canelo for Molina. That's the fight I want for him," DeCubas told BoxingScene.com.

I guarantee this won't be a boring fight if it happens. Canelo has the right type of style to help Molina look good.

This would be a slaughter and canelo would gain another belt, why not. Canelo worked hard so he deserves an easy fight.
