    bundrage-corneliusCornelius Brundage defined the odds earlier tonight when he went into Cancun, Mexico to face hometown favorite and IBF Super Welterweight Champion Carlos Molina, and walked out the new title holder.

    Brundage, who was maybe discredited by many, has regained his title since losing it to Ishe Smith in 2013. The fight between Brundage and Molina took place in Cancun, due to Molina’s inability to enter the United States. In the first round, Brundage was able to drop Molina with a right hand, Molina survived the round but went on to get outclassed by the 41 year old veteran. As the fight carried on, Brundage outboxed Molina, which surprised many, as Molina is a very difficult guy to figure out stylistically. In the 8th round, Brundage landed a right hand followed by a body shot that railed Molina into the ropes, with only seconds to go, Molina was able to make it out of the round. Brundage would later be deducted a point for punching Molina while holding his head. In the 10th Brundage once against landed a solid right hand that face planted Molina into the canvas. Though Molina disregarded the knockdown, the referee, rightfully, ruled it as one and Molina was now more than ever behind on the scorecards.

    With only 2 rounds to secure multiple knockdowns if not a knockout, which chances were very slim that it was going to happen for Molina, he gave his all and went out on his shield, looking more impressive when hurt than when he wasn’t. In the end, it was too late and Brundage has rightfully secured the victory with a unanimous decision to regain the IBF Super Welterweight title. The final scorecards read 116-109, 117-106, and 115-110.
