Molina headlines May 27 Solo Boxeo card
Undefeated lightweight prospect Carlos Molina will headline the May 27 edition of Solo Boxeo against veteran Angel Chacon in Pico Rivera, Calif.,It will be Molina's first fight of 2011.
Undefeated lightweight prospect Carlos Molina is scheduled to face seasoned veteran Angel Chacon in the Telefutura-televised main event of a Solo Boxeo show on May 27 in Pico Rivera, Calif.
It will be first fight of 2011 for Molina (14-0, 7 knockouts), of Rosemead, Calif., who was sidelined by a hand injury early in the year. A nasty bout with the flu last month disrupted his training and dashed a scheduled spot on the April 23 Joseph Agbeko-Abner Mares undercard.
Molina's last fight was an eight-round decision over journeyman John Figueroa last November.
Chacon (30-9-2, 15 KOs), a former title challenger from Puerto Rico, has lost five of his last six bouts since coming back from a brief retirement in 2004. The 38-year-old veteran was knocked out in the second round of a 122-pound title fight against Erik Morales in 1999. Molina was 13 years old at the time of that fight.
Undefeated junior welterweight prospect Luis Ramos (18-0, 8 KOs), of Santa Ana, Calif., fights in the co-featured bout of the May 27 Solo Boxeo show against an opponent to be named.
