Adrien Broner vs. Carlos Molina Results
Broner comes out with his hands low, clearly confident in his superior speed and skill. Using his should roll, looking for big right hands. Pawing out his jab as a rangefinder. Molina lands a body shot, will need to keep that up and slow him down.
More of the same at the start of the 2nd. Broner gets lazy with his defense and Molina tags him a few times, fires himself up, and the crowd. At the start of the 3rd, Broner tosses Molina to the canvas and gets a hard warning from referee Kenny Bayless. Molina comes back with some more work to the body. He’s throwing much more now, and his activity is serving him well. Broner lands a big right hand, but a good round for Molina.
Molina doing a real good job taking the fight to Broner right now. He’s doing really good work to the body, staying busy, and Broner isn’t doing much in return. Broner just looking to pick him off here and there, but Molina is the consistent one right now.
Broner getting himself into the fight more now. He’s using his speed to land clean shots and making Molina second guess himself. Doing some showboating though, certainly making everyone watching at home hope to see him lose yet again. And as I finish typing, he pulls out the old Adrien Broner hump, to jeers from the crowd. What in the world goes through this guy’s head?
Broner also gets warned for some of his elbows and forearms that he’s working in there. Molina looking tired out right now in Round 6. But he’s still in the fight. Broner more active now and is landing mostly at will. Molina tries a charge inside but he’s markedly less busy than he was a few rounds ago when he was seeing some success.
In Round 7, the fight becomes more and more in Broner’s control. He’s teeing off now and Molina seems a bit resigned to his fate at this point. Broner slows up in the 8th, he’s either resting and taking the round off or he just lost focus a bit. Either way, pace has continued to slow here into the 9th. But Broner now just keeping Molina at the end of his jab. Plenty of showboating going on, but not dealing too much damage.
Fight continues at this rate through the close. Broner will win, but not exactly impressive here, and still creating nothing but haters with his attitude and showboating.
Official scores: 99-91, 98-92 and 100-90 for Broner
Listen, the right guy clearly won the fight here, but to say Molina didn’t win a single round, or only won one round… it’s absurd.
J’Leon Love vs. Marco Antonio Periban Results
The fight begins with Love working behind a quick, sturdy jab, and using lots of footwork to move in and out, and Periban pressing forward and looking to be aggressive and do damage. Suddenly Periban gets a bloodied nose, and by Round 2 it’s bleeding pretty badly. It’s bothering him a bit and it could be broken. Love staying behind the crisp jab and using it to good effect.
Periban comes out in the 3rd and buzzes Love. He backs him into the corner and unloads, but Love avoids most of it and then ties him up. Periban stays committed to his pressure though and lands a few more good shots on Love. Slows down by the end of the round, but did good work for much of it.
Love has a nice comeback round in the 4th, taking back control of the fight. Periban has to make this is an ugly fight if he has any hope, because Love is too skilled when he has a chance to pick him apart.
But just like that in the 5th round, Periban gets Love badly hurt with a huge right hand. He starts unloading against the ropes, and Love’s head is being snapped back. It looks like referee Jay Nady is about to wave it off, but then he somehow does it, and Love escapes with a clinch. Then Periban gets him hurt again, and finally officially scores a knockdown, although he also manages to land a shot or two to the back of the head with Love down. Then Nady literally tosses him down across the ring… what a crazy, crazy sequence!
Love seems to have settled down here in Round 6. Periban more complacent and it allows Love to do his work. Love lands a few big shots which push Periban back. Periban bouncing around backward now, and cut over his left eye.
Since that big round for Periban where he almost scored the stoppage, it’s been all Love. Periban maybe gassed out after that barrage, but either way, Love has come on strong through the 6th and 7th.
Periban complains to his corner that blood getting in his eyes from that cut. His face is certainly a bloody mess. He just can’t figure Love out right now, and in the process of trying, he has slowed down and he’s following Love around now instead of attacking.
Ultimately, Love did an excellent job coming back from the knockdown in Round 5. If you’re Periban or his team, you’re wondering what if — because they almost had, and could have had, a stoppage win there. But that’s not the way it played out. Looks like Love did enough to win on the scorecards.
Official scores: 95-93, 97-92 and 96-93 for Love
