Molina: Broner didn’t fight, everyone saw him running
John Molina Jr was disappointed that a promised war between him and Adrien Broner failed to materialize as the Californian dropped a third straight loss against a world-class opponent on Saturday night.
The exciting 32 year-old was comprehensively outboxed by three-weight world champion Broner, 25, something Molina readily admitted post-fight, although he couldn’t help but groan at the tactics adopted by ‘The Problem’ on his way to a 30th career win.
“He should’ve kept his word and stayed there and fight me. Everyone saw him running around in there. He did what he had to do to win, he won the fight. It was a tough fight and he’s a tough fighter and he boxes well, but he didn’t exchange well,” pointed out Molina.
“He moves a lot and doesn’t like to exchange too much. When I got on the inside he said that I was holding him or leading with my head. I’m a professional and I tried to fight on the inside like I do.
“It is what it is, he got the victory tonight.There wasn’t much of a game plan to stick to because he kept running,” he added.
Molina has now lost to Broner, Humberto Soto and Lucas Matthysse (WBN Fight of the Year 2014) in the past twelve months and will need to take heed of his next opponent choice in order to put his career back on a sound footing going forward.
