Oscar Molina seems to be getting better with each fight. Molina, of Norwalk, took only 55 seconds to dispatch Jose Martell of Phoenix, nailing him with a double left hook – body then head. Molina, a 2012 Olympian for Mexico, is now 5-0 with four knockouts. Their super welterweight bout on the undercard of Chris Arreola-Bermane Stiverne at Citizens Business Bank Arena was scheduled for four rounds.
Martell (2-8) does not have a good record. Nevertheless, Molina appears to be the real deal.
Molina’s twin brother, Javier, boxed for Team USA in 2008 Olympic Games.
