Carlos Molina in Jail, May Not Fight

Carlos Molina

Carlos Molina is supposed to fight Jermall Charlo on the undercard for Canelo-Angulo on Saturday but that is in jeopardy right now. Molina is in jail after he was picked up this morning. Kevin Iole had the details:

According to Abigail Gomez, a spokeswoman for the Clark County, Nev., Detention Center, Molina is wanted in Wisconsin for obstruction and failing to register as a sex offender. She said he has been placed on an immigration hold. Molina was born in Mexico but lives in the U.S.

Sgt. Dave Lund of the Appleton, Wis., police said Molina is wanted by both the Outagamie, Wis., County Sheriff and the Appleton Police Department. He is wanted by the Outagamie sheriff on the sex offense charge, charges that have been pending since January 2007, Lund said. Appleton police have a misdemeanor disorderly conduct warrant out for Molina from 2005.

He was expected to be at the press conference to day but did not make it. This isn’t how Molina saw the week leading up to his title defense going.
