Fight Picks Analysis: 5’6″ Adrien Broner is a stocky counterpuncher with good power, fast hands and a slippery defense. Broner prefers to stand flat-footed in front of opponents and “make them miss and make them pay” with huge counterpunches. Broner can also fight effectively on the inside with hard bodypunches and above-average physical strength.
5’10” John Molina is a wiry slugger with tenacity, power and a great chin. Molina is pitbull that aggressively stalks his pray with well leveraged shots to the head and mid-section. Molina is game to the end but he is available to be hit and can be outboxed by faster opponents. Adrien Broner vs John Molina Vegas Odds Over/Under is at 10.5 Rounds
Vegas Sharps Bottom Line: Broner knows how to pick fights he can win and this bout is no different. Molina has beaten a faster fighter than Broner before in electric-fisted Mickey Bey but Broner is better boxer and puncher than Bey. Expect Broner to use his physical advantages to win a clear cut decision on the scorecards in the 117-111, 116-112 range.
