The second season of "Fight Night Club" will come to a close on Thursday, November 18, and Golden Boy Promotions and AEG have saved the best for last with an All-Los Angeles showdown between unbeaten Carlos Molina and fellow prospect "Dangerous" David Rodela that will have local fans on their feet from start to finish at L.A. Live's Club Nokia.
"The second season of 'Fight Night Club' has delivered great fights and memorable moments," said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions. "The season finale will be no different featuring an exciting, all LA fight between Carlos Molina and David Rodela.
"These two prospects always fight hard, but I expect that they're going to dig even deeper to win bragging rights here in front of their families, friends, and fans."
24-year old Carlos Molina (13-0, 7 KO's) has fought with the poise of a seasoned veteran for years, both as a stellar amateur and as a professional, but in 2010, he raised the bar with four wins that have put him on the map as a fighter with the potential to one day wear a world championship belt.
On November 18, he will look to follow up his victories over Tyler Ziolkowski (TKO1), Hensley Strachan (W4), Humberto Tapia (W8) and Glenn Gonzales (TKO5) with a fifth 2010 win, this one over David Rodela.
A five-year pro who has fought all but five of his fights in California, 28-year-old "Dangerous" David Rodela (15-3-3, 6 KO's) proudly represents his state every time he steps between the ropes and he's delivered in the ring with 15 wins over the likes of former World Champion Kevin Kelley, Jose Luis Soto Karass and Ramon Ayala. Hoping to close 2010 with a bang, Rodela is happy to return to the friendly confines of Club Nokia ring in search of win # 16.
A full slate of exciting undercard contests will be announced soon.
