Press Release: With WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez still looking for an opponent for his September 15th show in Las Vegas, contender Carlos Molina deserves the the oopportunity. "Hell yeah I want that fight!" said Molina (19-5-2, 6 KOs) from his home in Chicago. "Every time I fight somebody, it seems like they get to fight Canelo after that. [James] Kirkland was the second time it was going to happen. First time was with Kermit Cintron, whom I beat. Now they're talking about giving the fight to Erislandy Lara that I had a controversial draw with... What can I do?" Molina says he's ready, willing and able to step in, should anyone on Team Canelo come up with the novel idea of fighting the legitimate #1 contender. "I'm in the gym training. I'm ready for anyone, Canelo, anybody. I want to fight anybody in the top ten. I want hard fights, the toughest guys out there. This is the best division in boxing and that's where I want to be."
