Arreola vs. Molina being considered

Heavyweight contender Chris Arreola could pursue his seventh straight win and his fifth knockout during that run against once-beaten Eric Molina on the Feb. 18 undercard of a Showtime-televised tripleheader at American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Molina (18-1, 14 knockouts) is among the leading candidates to face Arreola (34-2, 29 KOs), whose bout will be part of a card that will also feature former two-time welterweight beltholder Paul Williams and IBF light heavyweight titleholder Tavoris Cloud.

Cloud will pursue the fourth defense of his belt against former WBA titleholder Gabriel Campillo, and Williams will be up against Nobuhiro Ishida.
