John Molina Looks to Rebound from the DeMarco Loss


After earning the NABO Lightweight Championship belt in July 2010 with an eleventh-round knockout against Henry “Hank” Lundy, John Molina, Jr. (24-2, 19 KOs) looks to restore his reputation with a victory by again claiming the vacant title against the power punching Dannie “Dangerous” Williams (22-2, 18 KOs) at the Pueblo Pavilion in Santa Fe, N.M on January 11.


Molina has been chomping at the bit to get back into the ring since the “aberration,” as he calls it, a first-round TKO against Antonio DeMarco in a WBC Lightweight Championship bout last September. The Covina, Calif. native protested the referee’s decision to stop the fight to the California State Athletic Commission, based upon having half of his body hanging outside the bottom rope, to no avail.


“It’s my job now to prove everybody wrong,” Molina said in regard to his fight against DeMarco. “I’m sure people are saying John who? but come Jan. 11, I’ll have my chance to turn it all around.”


Molina certainly didn’t take the easy path to accomplish this.  


His eagerness for redemption increases the tension for what is already set to be a thrilling bout between the two knockout fighters with each of them having a 75% KO average. The hard-swinging Williams also enters the fight with a chip on his shoulder after missing out on a chance at premium lightweight bout with a decision loss to  Lundy on March 30, 2012.


In the semi-main event bout to be televised live on ESPN (9 PM ET/6 PM PT), is hot prospect and undefeated super middleweight, Brandon “Flawless” Gonzales
(16-0-1, 10 KOs), who will face Don Mouton (11-4-1, 9 KOs) in an eight-round bout.


The event is being promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions in association with
M & H Productions and DiBella Entertainment.
