Going into the 10th round, it looked like a certain defeat for Molina, but he was able to connect with a short left hook to the head while in close with Bey.
The punch badly hurt Bey, who attempted to clinch, but Molina wouldn’t let. Molina kept throwing punch after punch until referee Vic Drakulich stepped in and halted the bout at 2:01 of the round.
