Friday Night Fights Recap: Molina KO’s Williams, Gonzalez Decisions Mouton


Brandon Holmes faced off against Alberdo Esparza to start off the night. By the end of the first round swelling was already noticeable under the right eye of Esperza. It was both of their pro debuts but Holmes was too skilled  and experienced for Esparza. He picked his shots well and landed a big left hook that lead to a knockout victory for the now 1-0 Brandon Holmes.

Also on the undercard was a middleweight clash between Brandon Gonzales and Don Mouton. The fight starts out with Mouton rushing in but is being controlled by the jab and footwork of Gonzales.  Working behind the  jab really was the key for Gonzales. Mouton only really landed effectively when Gonzales was lazy with his jab.  Gonzales walks away, 7 rounds to 1 unanimous decision.

The main event was Danny Williams versus John Molina. In his last fight Molina lost by first round knock out to Antonio Demarco. He was overwhelmed by volume punches. While I don’t think he should have been stopped, Molina should have taken a knee. Both Molina and Williams are to come back off losses. Lets see who’s career is given a second chance and who’s gets put into a waiting room.

The first round started slow, a feel out round for sire. I think Williams might have wanted to pressure him early like DeMarco did but maybe better safe than sorry. Molina keeps inching towards Williams, who jumps in and out land pop shots. Molina is less busy but landing the more meaningful blows. In round 4 Williams seems very tired for so early in the fight. Molina takes advantage and uses a jab to set up a huge right hand that floors  Williams. It was a shot to the top of the head, Williams doesn’t have any idea where he is. Williams beats the count but he got up on the other side of the ropes and the ref called it off. Forth round KO win for John Molina Jr.

After the fight Austin “No Doubt Trout was ringside with Joe and Teddy. “Who you gonna fight May 4th?” Joe asked. Trout replied “I’m hoping I can fight Canelo.” Trout also stated “My mind is very strong, strong enough to go into Canelo’s backyard if he wants.” Looking forward to seeing that fight getting made but the story of the night was John Molina, who breathed new life into his career with that knockout.
