Heavyweight contender Eric Molina’s manager, Lee Holliday, is working with the British Board of Boxing in hopes of getting Molina an early release from his suspension.

Molina was given a two-year suspension by the British Boxing Board for an illegal substance discovered in post-fight testing following his loss to Anthony Joshua in England on Dec. 10, 2016.

“I’m hopeful that the British Boxing Board will consider allowing Molina an early release on his suspension,” said Holliday.  “It is coming up on two years since the Joshua fight.  I know David Price is looking for an opponent in England.  If we are fortunate to get the release, Molina would be happy to fight Price.”

The British Board of Boxing found a banned substance and Molina thought it was part of the B12 supplement he was taking.

Molina is 26-5 with 19 KOs and Price is 22-5 with 18 KOs.
