Bey, Molina meet in search of redemption
Unbeaten lightweight standout Mickey Bey will face former title challenger John Molina on Friday in Las Vegas. It will be Bey's first bout since testing positive for high levels of testosterone in his last fight. Molina is coming off a decision loss.
Lightweights John Molina and Mickey Bey will be in search of redemption for different reasons when they clash on Friday night at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Showtime's ShoBox: The New Generation.
"I am looking to get back on track. My last fight was a setback," said Molina, who has reunited with former trainer Joe Goossen.
"I still think I did enough to win, and I know I'm in phenomenal shape and that I plan to go out and dominate this fight. All the ducks are in order, the engines are firing on all cylinders. I think it's going to be a great night this Friday, and I am very excited to be fighting again on Showtime on their 'ShoBox' series."
Bey (18-0-1, 9 KOs), of Cleveland, was last in the ring for a third-round knockout of Robert Rodriguez in February at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas that was turned into a no-contest by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after Bey tested positive for high levels of testosterone. Bey, 30, was suspended for three months, fined $1,000 of his $8,000 purse.
"Me and my teacher Floyd Sr getting it in, getting ready for July 19. Tune in showtime," wrote Bey. "Tune in July 19 showtime watch me put in work."
