Christian Molina looks to thrill hometown fans this Saturday night at Sands Casino Bethlehem

Bethlehem, PA (June 25 2015)–Saturday night at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem, Christian Molina will look to stay undefeated when he takes on veteran Justin Johnson in a 6-round Jr. Welterweight bout that will be part of a 10 bout card.

Molina has established himself as one of the most popular fighters in the Lehigh Valley due to his exciting fighting style and engaging personality outside the ring.

Molina has been working very hard as he prepares for a step up bout against Johnson, who despite his record of 6-8, is 4-4-2 against the 10 undefeated fighters that he has been in the ring with.

“Training has been good. Right now I am just looking to make the weight and be ready for Saturday,” said the 27 year-old Molina.

Molina knows that he has to be at his best as Johnson not only has the experience but also has some physical advantages.

“I know he is 2 or 3 inches taller then I am. We have some good game plans and do what we have to do to win. I know he is a good fighter.”

As mentioned previously, Molina has built a great fan base in the area and they will be out to cheer their man on this Saturday.

“A lot of people come to support me. I really love that and it helps me in the ring. I feel that after a couple more wins, I can become a very big draw as I know that Puerto Rican fight fans get behind good fighters. This is my first six round bout and I know the big fights are yet to come.”

It says even more about how Molina has caught on to the fans as he came here from Puerto Rico just seven years ago.

“I came from San Sebastian, Puerto Rico in 2008 and went to Mendez Liciago High School and graduated from there in 2006. I came here by myself and wanted a future in America. I work in a warehouse to support my boxing. I know nothing is easy, I will continue to work hard and be the best fighter out there and hopefully one day, I can go back to Puerto Rico and fight at home.”

“Nothing is easy but I want to thank everyone who has supported me.”
