SHERMAN OAKS, CA (September 30, 2013) – Oscar Molina (7-0, 6 KOs), who represented Mexico in the 2012 Olympic Games will return on November 16, 2013 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California looking for his eighth professional victory as he takes on Carlos “Gallo” Sanchez in a 6-round bout underneath the Andre Ward vs. Edwin Rodriguez WBA World Championship event.
This past Saturday in Toluca Mexico and broadcast on Televisa, Molina scored a spectacular 5th round knockout over a very game Ignacio Miranda (3-10, 2 KOs) that had the sold out arena standing cheering on their feet. Molina is quickly showing the abilities of an up-and-coming serious contender in the Jr Middleweight division. Backed by a great amateur pedigree that included a 2008 Youth World Amateur Boxing Championship Gold medal and Silver in the 2011 Pan American Games, Molina is fast adjusting to the professional style.
Co-promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions and Promotions Del Pueblo, Molina will be looking for his 7th consecutive knockout against Sanchez after going the distance in his first professional bout.
The event is promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions. The Ward-Rodriguez bout is presented in association with DiBella Entertainment. Sponsored by Toyota, Morongo Casino Resort & Spa and the City of Ontario.
