Carlos Molina

A former National Amateur Champion, 26-year-old Carlos Molina is continuing his assault on the professional ranks in impressive fashion, compiling an unbeaten 17-0-1 record with 7 KOs.  That includes a shutout six round win over 53-fight veteran Anthony Martinez on May 21, 2009, a fourth round TKO over Ever Luis Perez on July 30th of 2009, and a first round stoppage of Antony Nelson just a month later.
Known for a fan-friendly style based on blazing speed and pinpoint accuracy, the native of Commerce, California guarantees excitement whenever he steps into the ring.
In July of 2009, Molina signed a promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions.
“I'm happy to be a part of Golden Boy Promotions, who is the best promoter out there,” said Molina.  “I feel really blessed to be where I am and I'm looking forward to making a name for myself through this company.”
In 2010, Molina has continued on his road to the top with five wins– a first round TKO of Tyler Ziolkowski on January 29th, a four round decision victory over Hensley Strachan in February, an eight round win over Humberto Tapia in May, a fifth round stoppage of fellow prospect Glenn Gonzales in August , and a points win over John Figueroa in November.
Molina’s first 2011 outing saw him battle to an eight round draw with Juan Montiel in August, but he got back on the winning track on December 3rd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, winning a near shutout unanimous decision over 18-3 Manuel Leyva.
2012 has been a big one for Molina, with wins over Angino Perez and Marcos Jimenez earning him the WBO Intercontinental title and a December 15th fight in Los Angeles against former world champion Amir Khan.

Norwalk's  Carlos Molina is one of the most experienced and toughest fighters in his division, having faced former world champions Amir Khan and Adrien Broner in his most recent bouts. Molina is a talented boxer-puncher whose versatility has led him to wins over a varied array of experienced opponents.  Now, the 29-year-old Molina's first fight on California soil since December 2012 against the powerful Gesta will be a highly-anticipated bout for all his local fans eager to see him make a run at a championship in 2015.
