Adrien Broner will be squaring off against John Molina at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 7th.

The 29-1-0 Broner is currently in the midst of a two fight winning streak (Emmanuel Taylor, Carlos Molina) following the first loss of his career against Marcos Rene Maidana in December of 2013. Broner hopes to continue working his way back up the ladder so that he can continue to earn some big name fights.

John Molina Jr, on the other hand, enters this fight with a professional record of 27-5-0. Having said that, three of Molina's last five fights have resulted in losses (Humberto Soto, Lucas Martin Matthysse, Andrey Klimov). Molina Jr. isn't expected to pose much of a threat to Broner on Saturday night, as evidenced by the odds below:

Adrien Broner, 1.12
John Molina, 6.00

According to these odds, Broner should win the fight 83.33% of the time while Molina, on average, should win 16.67% of the time.

Most people feel that Molina's best path to victory would be a flash knockout of Broner. After all, 22 of Molina's 27 wins have come via knockout. Could Molina outbox Broner over the course of a 12 round fight? Seems hard to imagine, which means that Molina will likely need to stun Broner with an unexpected shot in order to gain the victory.

Broner, on the other hand, has been involved in four straight decisions. It's safe to assume that Broner will not be looking to get into a slugfest against Molina and will likely instead chose to outbox and out skill his opponent.


This is an interesting fight - do you think that Broner will emerge victorious or will Molina be able to pull off the unexpected victory?
