Adrien Broner bounced back from his loss to Marcos Maidana by dominating limited Carlos Molina on the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Maidana card Saturday in Las Vegas.
Broner started slowly but took control of the 10-round junior welterweight fight around the fourth round and cruised to a one-sided decision. The scores were: 99-91, 98-92 and 100-90.
Broner (28-1, 22 knockouts) lost a unanimous decision to Maidana at 147 pounds in December. He went down to 140 for the fight on Saturday and looked comfortable.
Molina (17-2-1, 7 KOs) gave Broner some trouble in the second and third rounds, landing some hard combinations. However, after that, Broner picked up his punch output and Molina couldn’t keep pace. Broner landed 250 of 614 total punches, Molina 150 of 550, according to CompuBox.
