    Amir Khan v Carlos Molina



    Amir Khan v Carlos Molina

    • Venue: Los Angeles Sport Arena
    • Date: Sunday 16 December
    • First bell: 05:00 GMT
    Coverage: Live text commentary on BBC Sport website


    Amir Khan says his bout with Carlos Molina is a "make or break fight".

    The light-welterweight lost his last two fights and will struggle to maintain his status as one of boxing's big draws if he loses in California on Saturday.

    It will be the first time he has fought since he started working with trainer Virgil Hunter.

    He said: "I know it is a make or break fight for me, that's why I'm taking it so seriously."
    Khan's recent fights




    Khan's career is at a critical point as he prepares for the bout at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.

    He was knocked down three times in defeat by Danny Garcia in July and now has a 26-3 record.

    The Bolton-born boxer, 26, said: "We will be more than ready for this fight and we will be in the best condition ever.

    "Hopefully everything will come together on Saturday and we are going to win this fight and finish the year off strong. That will put us in a good position come next year."

    Khan is determined to beat the California-based Molina by a convincing margin having controversially lost a points decision to Lamont Peterson in Washington a year ago - one of two successive defeats.

    The British fighter did have his WBA title handed back to him after the loss to Peterson, however, after the American failed a drugs test.

    Khan, a 2004 Olympic lightweight silver medallist, intends to change to a more defensive style after being caught by punches when attacking opponents in his last two fights.

    He added: "It is always tough to fight someone in their back yard and maybe that is why we are training even harder.

    "It has been a tough road. We have fought some big names.
    Carlos Molina's record


    • KOs: 17
    • Draws: 1


    "It is going to be another tough fight. We are going to go in there and do what we do best.

    "A win is a win and I will be sticking to the plan and sticking to the instructions from the corner instead of getting too wild.

    "People will still see an exciting Amir Khan, but now I'm a more mature fighter."

    Orthodox fighter Molina, 27, is unbeaten in 18 fights but has boxed mainly in his home state of California.

    He a lightweight stepping up a division and is four inches shorter than his opponent.

    And his description of the bout as a 'shot at the big time' underlines his lack of top-level experience.

    Molina said: "I am willing to walk to hell and back. This is my shot. This is my opportunity.

    "I have to be smart about it. I can't go in there and attack, attack, attack. I have to be smart about it.

    "He is a good boxer. We have a good plan for him and we are going to execute it on Saturday."

    All this talk from Khan about moving up to welterweight and here he is fighting a lightweight , who has moved up weight to challenge him .
    verdict
    he's picked it as an seemingly easy fight ,
    but you never know the other guy might just step up and deliver,,,

    khans great for a laugh whether he's getting beat in the ring or out clubbing in Birmingham -
    Many eyewitnesses reported something like this :
    Khan and his mates got into a argument with some locals and Khan got a fat lip and his stuff nicked before he was driven off .
    However Khan was more than happy to let this story run in the UK media

    Amir Khan KOs six yobs trying to steal his 100,000 car | The Sun |News

    Quote:
    The former world champ and his boxing brother Haroon, 20, were ambushed early yesterday morning as they returned to the flash motor after a night out.
    At least six men used a 4x4 to block the 25-year-old light welterweight’s path — but despite being heavily outnumbered, the pair fought back and landed a flurry of blows.
    An onlooker said: “These guys tried to jump Amir and his brother but they picked on the wrong blokes.
    “They parked their car in front of the Range Rover. At least one had a cosh. One slapped Amir and clipped him on the lip but Amir pulled back and knocked him out cold. Then five of them went for Amir and Haroon — but they stood their ground and these guys got dropped one by one. They left these men with cuts and bruises but all they were doing was defending their property.”


    Trouble is the gang , have hit back on youtube
    it's very funny , this guy hates khan as much as I do !
    he even also likes re-watching khan getting knocked down / out and like me shouts out
    Goodnight
    ...




    he gets even more worked up in part 2
    I love his maniacal alternate finger jabbing

    Blue has posted exactly the same thing on another boxing thread. http://teakdoor.com/the-sports-room/...-comeback.html (Ricky Hatton's Boxing Comeback.)

    Too bad that the guy in the video mocking Khan appears to be a real fecking POS himself.

    Khan's new opponent (with a new trainer) appears to be a banger with an impressive KO record, but having not really fought anyone of note.

    Khan however seems vulnerable to fighters like this.

    from interview
    "I expect him to be very patient in the early rounds," Molina said. "He's gonna be very defensive. I know he's going to be trying to use his jab a lot and keep me at distance. That's going to be his game plan in the beginning."

    Molina believes that once he tags Khan, the "old" -- some would say "real" -- Amir Khan will emerge, to Khan's detriment. "Once I start landing those shots, I know he's going to go back to the same old Amir Khan. He's going to want to go into exchanges. That's

    I got to agree and hope Khan gets rilled by a few body shots and reverts to type.

    But from boxrex
    Carlos Molina : Boxer



    division lightweight
    world rating 75 / 1587
    this is his very first fight at junior welterweight.
    He's only 5 ' 6 '' compared to khan 5' 10''
    If i'm reading the stat's right he has fought 17 times
    never at 12 rounds - the last 3 were 10
    before that 8....

    Still it might be a Rocky moment
    let's hope so

    It's a real boxing lesson for Molina. I love Khan's corner man he's got a great drawl.

    Khan could still lose this if he is careless......chopping down a Mexican can be tough work....

    Convincing win by Khan, fight stopped after 10 rounds. Flawless really against what has been promoted as a tough fighter.

    Never in trouble, great comeback fight.


    Bring on Garcia says Khan

    ''Bring on Garcia'' says Khan

    funny khan never accepts rematches when he wins
    but when he loses,,,,
    At least we will get to see khan walloped in the future
    when he head has re-swelled.

    Sounds damn good to me, and the money can be there. With Canelo's Mexican and Latin American following.
