THE LOWDOWN

FILIP HRGOVIC

  • Filip Hrgovic is coming off his seventh knockout over Mario Heredia, defending his WBC International title and extending his unbeaten record to 9-0.
  • Hrgovic had a packed and successful amateur career winning several national championships as well as gold at the 2015 European Games and bronze at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, losing to Tony Yoka in the semi-finals.
  • Hrgovic will have the size advantage over Molina with a three-inch reach advantage and a two-inch height advantage.

ERIC MOLINA

  • Molina fought for the first time in over two years in February earning a unanimous decision over Nick Guivas to bounce back from his stoppage loss to Dominic Breazeale back in November 2017.
  • Molina has only fought once since his fight with Breazeale due to serving a two-year ban imposed by the UK Anti-Doping organisation for testing positive for dexamethasone back in May 2018.
  • Molina has priceless experience and has fought some of the best heavyweights in the division including title fights against Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

THE PREDICTION

This is a huge step-up in competition for Hrgovic taking on the seasoned veteran, but he is fully expected to rise to the occasion. His power should accumulate on Molina who has taken a lot of damage in his career. The Croatian has the youth and power to claim his biggest scalp.

Winner: Hrgovic via KO/TKO
