Bartow Arena, Birmingham, AL, June 13
By Peter Lim
This fight is as much of a mismatch as the fighters' records suggests. Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) could not have found an easier opponent for the first defense of his WBC heavyweight belt than Molina (23-2, 17 KOs). It will be fast and clinical. Wilder will do a bit of poking and prodding with his jab before finding the opening for a fight-ending right cross in the second round.
Wilder looks very beatable. If a fighter of Molina's caliber could rock him like that, imagine the kind of damage someone like Chris Arreola or Alexander Povetkin would inflict on him.
