Mr. Molina plans his next lesson
Heavyweight Eric Molina (25-3, 19 knockouts) shocked a portion of the world, though not himself, when he stopped Tomasz Adamek April 2 in Poland.
The Texan, who doubles as a special education teacher in his neck of the woods, snagged a WBC regional belt in the process.
We wondered what he’s contemplating for his desired next.
“I’m not interested in an international title. We are looking at facing (newly-crowned IBF titlist) Anthony Joshua or the Deontay Wilder/Alexander Povetkin winner (for Wilder’s WBC belt). Or possibly Lucas Browne.”
His promoter, Don King – yep, he’s still in the mix, a couple years after Bernard Hopkins thought he defenestrated him – is on the hunt, Molina told us.
For those of you not in the know, “defenestrated” basically means “to remove from authority.” Woodsy brings it; doesn’t he?
