Khan stops Molina in 10th, captures WBC Silver 140 lb title

Amir khan (27-3, 19 KO’s) came back in style tonight to totally dominate the smaller, slower, weaker lightweight Carlos Molina (17-1, 7 KO’s) in a 10th round stoppage to capture the vacant WBC Silver light welterweight title at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The fight was halted after the 10th round by the request of Molina’s corner. Molina was badly beaten up with his left eye badly swollen and his face reddened from all the shots that he’d absorbed in the fight. Referee Jack Reiss had been carefully monitoring the situation from the 7th round due to the complete one-sidedness of the fight. 


Khan did show a lot more movement and defense than he had in the past, but he still was hit a lot early in the fight due to his tendency to throw a lot of flurries. It’s hard to say what would have happened if he was fighting a guy his height and reach and with power. He was hit pretty easy and if he was put on pressure, which the little 5’6″ Molina was too short to do, it’s hard to say what would have happened.
After the fight Khan said “If I was fighting Dany here tonight I would have knocked him out. He got lucky. He caught me with a good shot. I’m ready to fight Danny Garcia anytime any place.”
In another interview, however, Khan was talking about not fighting Garcia next, saying he’ll fight whoever his promoters want him to and that they have other big fights ahead of him. He wasn’t mentioning Garcia at all during that interview.
