    Adrien Broner Handles "Not That" Carlos Molina With Ease

    Mayweather Lite Adrien Broner took on Carlos "Not That" Molina in the second PPV bout before Floyd Mayweather gloved up against Marcos Maidana on Saturday night at the MGM.
    Broner was solid after a slow start, in control, but the showing wasn't a barn-burner, wasn't leaving the fans saying, "I must see him again." Maybe a name foe next time will help his up his game. As it was, he took a UD10, via scores of 99-91, 98-92, 100-90.
    He called it a "sparring match on TV," and the crowd booed, understandable if you ponied up big money for the PPV. He swore, and Jim Gray asked for class and dignity. Gray wondered if the weight is the right one for him. They're all good, he said. AB said he wants Pacquiao at some point, and the silence spoke volumes. People aren't caring as much. He's come quite far from being in contention as the next PPV driver, I'm afraid.
    A 140 pound crown was up for grabs.
    In the first, the fighter from Cali ate jabs, and hooks. He tried to bring it at the end of the round, to steal it, but he didn't.In the second, the flashy, blingy, love to hate him persona Broner, was too busy and slick for Molina. An overhand right, then another, off a combo platter, by Molina jazzed the crowd, but he mocked it.
    In the third, Broner hit Molina low. He was warned. Molina showed, maybe, better hand speed and ability to put together a combo than some might've figured.
    In the fourth, Broner decided to up his out put, edge closer, be nastier. It worked.
    In the fifth, uppercuts worked for Broner; everything did, really, as his volume overwhelmed the massive underdog.
    In the sixth, Molina got more active. But Broner has the bigger pack of tools and he took another round.
    In the seventh, Molina was hanging in there, striking at the end of the round he lost, and the two barked after the bell.
    In the eighth, Broner scored and then moved, as Molina looked to track him down. Molina didn't succeed enough to take the round.
    In the ninth, AB pressed forward, after a round of retreating. It worked.
    In the tenth, Broner outlanded the loser by a fair margin, yet again. Molina landed some shots late, but we went to the cards, after a middling scrap.

    Adrien Broner was not impressive in his win vs Carlos Molina as he showed many vulnerabilities since the opening round. I had the fight scored a solid 6-4 for Adrien Broner. Losing to Maidana did not seem to mature Adrien who uncalled for and unsportman like disrespectfully insulted his rival. Molina is no joke who came ready to fight with his furious boxing abilities but was unable to hold it together. Broner needed a near KO win to assure his fans that he is the future of boxing but it seemed to be more of a problem for Broner.

    Yes, Broner won, but what a lowlife he is. I thought Jim Grey was gonna' hit him with the microphone during the post-fight interview after Broner dropped a few "F-Bombs."

    Did you hear those boos during and after his interview? Broner has got to be the most detested, despised fighter I have seen in my 45 years in boxing. He's interesting to watch in the ring, and just as unwatchable in an interview.

    I am sure I am not alone as I await the day he faces another beating like the one he got from Marcos Maidana.

    That day can't come fast enough.

    That interview was hideous. I really don't want to hear him talk anymore unless he can start acting more mature. From the reaction on social media, it seems more and more fans are echoing that same sentiment.

    As for the fight, very non-descript performance by Broner. He won and did so by a wide margin (the only rounds I had Molina winning were 2 and 3). But he once again abandoned the jab to walk his opponent down. And still fought in spots with a lot of dead spots. I saw a fighter who did not learn anything at all from the loss to Maidana. Yes he won but he needs to start listening and learning otherwise against better opposition he will fall short.

    I'd love to see Broner get what he wishes for, Pacquiao! Oh boy would that be great!

    Everytime Broner opens his mouth it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth, he's not polarizing he's just an arsehole.

    The problem is an impoverished version of Floyd and pretty soon no one will be looking to invest.

    In all my years in this sport, I can't remember a more vile, classless, lowlife than Adrien Broner. His fights are fun to watch, but he should no longer be given a stage to be interviewed after the fight.

    Let him leave the ring, go back to his dressing room and talk to the mirror. That's the only one I canthink of who will enjoy what he has to say and how he says it!

    Broner is an okay fighter. When I saw him the second time his father combing his hair is why I remembered him. If you take away all his antics and mimicking Mayweather he is just an average fighter unless he is fighting someone smaller and not as strong, then he is a little bit above average. He is still a sucker for the right hand, he can't seem to defend against it. When he is in with another puncher or speedy boxer look for him to lose again. I would love to see him in there with Providnokoff (misspelled). If he wants WW fight Thurman. He started to do that humping thing again but Bayless stopped him. Also Bayless should have penalized him a point for that take down.

    Good point, he's best against smaller fighters with limited power.

    Oscar should put an end to the cold war and give big mouth a shot against Pacquiao

    This fight should have hopefully opened the minds of Adrien Broner fans to the reality that he is not a world beater. What should have been over in 2 was stretched the full distance. He can grab a plastic strap whenever it's available but a real champion he will never be.

    Even Khan couldnt stop Molina.... Who has never been stopped ... Broner looked really good and is far better than average. However he should leave the shock-jock commentary to the likes of Howard Stearns.. Broner should hire a publicity agent to teach him the ropes of self promotion. Broner vs Lamont Peterson would be a good fight.... He should stay clear of Garcia and Mattysse for now.
