Re: Your Assessment of Carlos Molina?
interesting, hes a stocky, rough looking ****er and looks like he hits a lot harder than his record suggests, and he did well boxing at range against the taller fighter here, not something he wants to do against Khan though.
Having said that, he did catch Jiminez with some sharp left hook counters when Jiminez came in to punch. I don't think Jiminez used his height to his advantage here, Molina has short sharp hooks and Jiminez was taking too many on the inside, if Khan stands with the earmuffs up, Molina will rough him up, no question.
He has pretty good handspeed and a nice sharp jab, but I think his work rate is an issue.
Khan, coming off a KO defeat, will NOT be able to coast past this guy, he better be at the top of his game.
I say this after watching him for the first time, the guy is no slouch, powerful, and he looks to be good in every department, if not spectacular, and he will be coming fancying his chances and knowing exactly what he has to do to win
