DKP’s Eric Molina takes on Joshua for IBF title

Don King Productions Eric Molina will take on Anthony Joshua for the IBF heavyweight championship on Saturday Dec. 10 in Manchester England.

Joshua, 27, is undefeated with a 17-0 record and considered by many to be the next Mike Tyson.

Molina, 34, is 25-3 and riding a two fight win streak after giving WBC champion Deontay Wilder all he could handle before a 9th round stoppage.

Molina is a massive underdog going into the fight and is seen as a mere stepping stone to a potential blockbuster with former champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2017.

Joshua turned professional after winning gold at the London 2012 Olympics and has gone from strength to strength stopping all of his 17 opponents inside the distance.

No one has been able to live with the huge 6ft 6ins Watford born boxer who has only boxed 41 rounds as professional fighter.

Only Dillian Whyte and Dominic Beazeale have given Joshua anything to think about with both fighters lasting seven rounds.

However, Joshua claims Molina is his toughest opponent yet.

The Texan made his professional debut nearly ten years ago and was knocked out in his debut fight.

Molina came back to go undefeated for 18 fights and now boasts a record of 28 fights with 25 wins and 3 defeats and 19 wins by knockout.

Molina stunned Deontay Wilder before being knocked out in the ninth round.

Anthony Joshua prepares for second defence of his heavyweight crown against Molina.

You can watch the whole evening's boxing, including a packed under card, from Manchester on Sky Box Office HD on Saturday 10 December. Coverage starts from 5pm.
