Molina pressed Williams in round two. Williams, 28, landed a hard right in the middle of the round. That same punched landed two more times during the three minutes. Molina connected with a one two that backed up Williams.
Williams came out throwing lead right hands in the third round. After an accidental head butt, Molina landed a hard left hook that buckled the knees of Williams.
In round four, Williams tried to box and stay away. He connected with a combination. Molina moved forward with confidence. As Williams backed to the ropes, Molina threw a light jab followed by a thudding right that landed on the left temple of Williams sending the St. Louis native sprawling to the canvas.
Williams attempted to beat the fatal 10 count , but failed.
I went out and landed the right hand,” said Molina after the fight. “I feel real good with my new trainer Robert Garcia.”
