Boxing: Anthony Joshua and Eric Molina Fight Next Month

The UK's own IBF World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua is back in action on December 10th at 21:00 GMT.

Unbeaten in 17 fights and the current IBF Heavyweight Champion of the World Anthony Joshua is back in action following the destruction of Dominic Breazeale and the former US Champ Charles Martin to face Eric Molina at Manchester Arena on December 10. This will be the second title defense for Joshua and he will be going up against the experience of the American Molina. Favored to win, Joshua will use tonight's fight to send a message to Wladimir Klitschko, as he could be next in line for a shot at Joshua, as could Luis Ortiz. 

Joshua hasn't been tested in his previous 17 fights and has blasted opponents with his fast and furious punch combinations and athleticism, leaving them on the canvas dazed and confused. Even though Molina is no pushover, Joshua is expected to win, but if he does have any trouble with the America, his future opponents will look to expose any weak spots, but frankly Joshua doesn't have many.

Each of Joshua's 17 fights have ended in a knockout and this young fighter's incredible career is just beginning. Even though the 27-year old champion is expected to knock the 34-year old Molina out for the 18th straight win, he is not taking the American lightly, "I'm expecting this to be the toughest fight of my career so far, and I will be ready for an all-out war."

Joshua has said that he wants another quick stoppage and not get into a marathon with Molina. Many skeptics are interested to see how Joshua performs in later rounds, but truth is he doesn't need to get passed the second round in most fights, with only two early fights ending in the seventh.

Molina has bounced back in his career like few have ever dreamed of, but his chances are slim according to the big sportsbooks around the world.
