On Tuesday, at the five-star The Mayfair Hotel on Berkeley Street in Central London, former Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Amir Khan, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions Richard Schaefer, Execute Vice President and General Manager of SHOWTIME Sports Stephen Espinoza and Khan Promotions’Asif Vali met with the top British and European sports media to formally announce the upcoming showdown between Khan and undefeated Carlos Molina on Saturday, Dec. 15 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, live on SHOWTIME in the United States and live on Sky Sports 1HD in the United Kingdom.

The former Unified Super Lightweight World Champion, British superstar Amir “King” Khan (26-3, 18 KO’s) is ready to bounce back under the guidance of new trainer Virgil Hunter following a controversial defeat to Lamont Peterson last December and an upset loss to Danny Garcia this past July. The 25-year-old Bolton, England native won a Silver Medal in the 2004 Olympics and owns wins over Marco “El Chino” Maidana, Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi, Zab “Super” Judah and Marco Antonio “Baby Faced Assassin” Barrera.

Former National Amateur Champion Carlos Molina (17-0-1, 7 KO’s) has passed all his tests to date, but faces his toughest test in Khan. After debuting in 2007, the talented 26-year-old from Norwalk, California has showed skill, patience and poise in the ring while defeating Manuel Leyva, Glenn Gonzalesand Marcos Jimenez.

Let's hope he does box smart and avoids leading with the chin. I think he would be ver cautious and may not really 'open up' till his confidence is back in a few fights time.
