Adrien Broner will take on John Molina Jr. in a triple-header card to kick off Premier Boxing Champions on March 7 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight will be carried live by NBC (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT).
Odds To Win
Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) enters the fight a wide favorite in Vegas and online sportbooks.
Broner, 25 years old, is coming off back to back victories over Emmanuel Taylor and Carlos Molina after suffering his only defeat to Argentine Marcos Maidana in December 2014. Broner has registered wins over top-level opponents Paulie Malignaggi, Daniel Ponce de Leon, and Antonio Demarco.
32-year-old John Molina Jr. (27-5, 22 KOs) was last in action in September 2014, losing to Humberto Soto by unanimous decision. Before facing Soto, Molina had been stopped by Lucas Matthysse in the 11th-round of their vicious 2014 ‘Fight of the Year’ at the StubHub Center in California.
Despite Molina’s solid past opposition and recent upset knockout victory over world champion Mickey Bey, Broner will present his biggest test to date.
